    Needs clarity for 'Network Usage' descriptor in 'age rating' for web apps

    All web apps need network connection (even simple games such as tic tac toe). And all javascript in an asha web app runs at server side (except MWL function calls). Then is it compulsory for a web app to be marked as 'App with Network usage' even if it does not use content from any other servers?

    'Network usage' sets the app's age rating to 9+ (even it is a game for 6 year old).

    Age rating descriptors are listed here - http://developer.nokia.com/resources...ge-rating.html

    And they are explained here - http://developer.nokia.com/resources...scriptors.html

    If you open the second link and go to the bottom of the page you can see the network usage explanation. But nothing specific to the web apps. Can we have simple web apps with 0+ rating?

    Re: Needs clarity for 'Network Usage' descriptor in 'age rating' for web apps

    I think this was badly communicated to us. Suddenly there were age and network ratings mandatory. No message on the front page, no blog entry, no message in the forum. Just some documents were changed.

    I guess WebApps need to check "Network usage". As network usage often costs money for the user, this makes sense.

    But I would also like to get an official clarification.
