Is it more common to place the "Rate this app" prompt to be triggered when the user has made it to a certain point in the app (after beating a certain level, gaining access to a certain tab, etc). Or is is more common to have the prompt on a timer and just go off after the user has been using the app for a certain period of time and is in a place where a message won't interrupt their session.

Are their pro's and con's of each or is only one practice really executed?

You should not interrupt the user's flow. Frequently asking to rate the app is bad.

If the user beats some level there will be a positive vibe in him. Utilize this vibe and ask him to rate the app. "Congratulations Dude(or user_name),That was awesome!! Would you mind taking a moment to rate us?"

A swipe banner is always better than a popup.

    Then again, I've never followed a popup or banner to rate an app. If I want to rate it, it's either because I think it's especially good or has some important flaw. I don't rate an app just because it tells me to.
