Age ratings are useful to help you decide what is appropriate for your child. You are probably familiar with the age ratings used for films, but apps and games are rated differently and there is lots more to consider. Some ratings give a minimum age, some use categories (such as Amazon app stores ‘guidance suggested’ category).
Have you ever been confused over the age ratings of apps and games?
Apps stores have their own classification systems to indicate the suitability of an app, but these don’t always match up to the developer's recommendation and then there are PEGI ratings too. It's no wonder we get confused!
Remember, ratings are a guide. The most important thing is that you know your child best, you can judge what your child’s abilities are and what is suitable for them.
