App Content Ratings coming to Android Market soon
All the applications and games available in Android Market will soon have to have content rating to give the users an idea before they download the app.
These content ratings will be All, Pre-Teen, Teen and Mature, all easy to understand. According to Android Devs Blog, “Starting in a few weeks, we will be showing content ratings for all applications on Android Market. This new capability will provide users with additional information to help them select the best applications for them.”
Developers will have the next several weeks to add a rating to their existing applications and games. Once content rating is visible to users, any applications or games that do not include a rating will be treated as “Mature”, added Eric Chu in his post.
