Android apps to gain content ratings, as listed by the developers

Androids application soon will display content rating on the Androids Market. Google announced today. The four ratings that apps will fall under include:

  • All
  • Pre-teen
  • Teen
  • Mature

Starting next week, developers submitting new or updated apps will have to include one of the four ratings. Existing applications also will have to be rated in the coming weeks. Ratings will be listed by the developers, so it'll be interesting to see how and if this is policed. If no rating is listed, the app will default to "mature." We also have to wonder how long it'll take the carriers to offer some sort of parental control over what can be seen in the Android Market -- and that would have some pretty serious repercussions
