Android Developers Blog is reporting that the Android Market is adding content rating to Apps. The new capability will give users additional information to help them select an application suitable for them.

“To prepare for this launch, starting next week, developers submitting new or updated applications will be required to include a rating for all applications and games uploaded onto Android Market. In addition, 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”.”

There are four levels to content ratings:

  • All
  • Pre-Teen
  • Teen
  • Mature
