NewsNokia Store Content Guidelines updated
Nokia Store Content Guidelines — Version 2.0
Nokia is implementing age rating to all new and updated content published in Nokia Store, to ensure child protection in mobile devices and the mobile internet. This version of the Content Guidelines contains new requirements concerning the content to be submitted, including Nokia age rating guidelines and what Nokia considers to be sensitive or forbidden content in Nokia Store.
There is also change to supported content types, as Nokia is focusing support and investment in new content toward Asha and Windows Phone.
Starting January 1, 2014, it is not possible to publish new content or update existing content for Symbian and MeeGo in Nokia Store. Therefore all requirements concerning those platforms has been removed from the document.
All newly submitted content and content updates must adhere to the version 2.0 of the Content Guidelines starting from January 1, 2014.
Version 2.0 of the Content Guidelines is currently in effect and available in English. The localized versions will be available later.
Version 1.4 is available in these languages:
