If you're a podcast fanatic and want to shower your favorite show or host with genuine praise, writing a review in Apple's Podcast app is the perfect place.

Leaving a review, whether good or bad, is simple and can be done in just a few steps. And if you ever want to go back and review your ratings, you can see them all in one place using your Apple device's Settings app.

Here's how to do both.

How to leave a review on Apple Podcasts

1. Open the Podcasts app on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.

2. Navigate to the page of the podcast you want to leave a review for. You can find it by searching for it or selecting it from your library. Just note that you'll have to go to the series page which shows all the episodes, not just the page for a single episode.

8. If you've never left a podcast review before, enter a nickname. Your nickname will be displayed next to any reviews you leave from here on out.

9. After selecting a nickname, tap OK. Your review may not be immediately visible, but assuming you didn't write anything offensive or spammy, it should be posted soon.

If you're using an older version of iOS, you might not see these options. Instead, open the Settings app and tap "iTunes and App Store," and then tap your Apple ID — you'll be able to find your reviews there.
