Content Ratings Coming to Android Apps

Nov 30, 2010

Google announced that app content ratings will soon be implemented into the Android Market. Starting this week (Now live in developers console: thanks Android Central) developers will be required to include a rating for all applications and games uploaded onto the Android Market. Apps and games will now be categorized under one of the four content rating levels: All, Pre-teen, Teen, & Mature. This is great news for users in my opinion and will add another way to sort and identify apps and their content. From what I understand, this announcement does not mean there will be any sort of restrictions based on content rating, but rather more of a reference guide for users.
