Apple Makes App Store Age Ratings More Visible

Vine does a pretty good job of hiding its adult content, but that doesn't mean it's not there. And that's why Apple has decided make the App Store age ratings easier to see. The ratings are now displayed next to an app icon, instead of below the description where they were previously located. This will make it easier for parents to know which apps are not appropriate for children.

Vine App

The change comes after Apple pulled the popular photo-sharing app 500px, because it was too easy to find nude content. The app eventually returned to the App Store brandishing a 17+ rating. Now several other apps, such as Vine, have been tagged with the adult rating, and an age-restriction warning when you attempt to download them.

The jailbreak tweak separates the apps into two columns: the top 200 paid apps on the left, and the top 200 free apps on the right. The app's name and developer info is displayed on a panel at the bottom of the screen when you tap any of the 400 listed icons. You can then load the app's official App Store page by tapping the displayed info.

How do I transfer purchases from my iPhone to a computer / iTunes?

How do I get a list of my purchased iPhone apps?

There are a few ways to find out whether or not you already own an iOS application. iTunes or the App Store on your iPhone won't charge you twice for the same app, but you might want to know in advance before you take a chance and install.

1. Try leaving a review of the app on iTunes (go to the iTunes page for the app you're checking and find Customer Reviews -> Write a Review). If you don't own the app, Apple won't let you write one.
