How to Find Information about an iPhone App in iTunes

Using iTunes on your computer, you can find information about iPhone apps on any of the iTunes App Store screens. Simply click the icon or link for the app, and a detail screen appears.

This screen should tell you most of what you need to know about the app, such as basic product information and a narrative description, what's new in this version, the language it's presented in, and the system requirements to run the app.

Notice that this app is rated 4+, as you can see below the Get App button. That means that this app contains no objectionable material. Here are the other possible ratings:

  • 9+: May contain mild or infrequent occurrences of cartoon, fantasy, or realistic violence; or infrequent or mild mature, suggestive, or horror-themed content that may not be suitable for children under the age of 9.

  • 12+: May contain infrequent mild language; frequent or intense cartoon, fantasy, or realistic violence; mild or infrequent mature or suggestive themes; or simulated gambling that may not be suitable for children under the age of 12.

  • 17+: May contain frequent and intense offensive language; frequent and intense cartoon, fantasy, or realistic violence; mature, frequent and intense mature, suggestive, or horror-themed content; sexual content; nudity; depictions of alcohol, tobacco, or drugs that may not be suitable for children under the age of 17. You must be at least 17 years old to purchase games with this rating.

One other feature of the detail pages worth mentioning is the collection of useful links below the app description. In the above figure, these links include Tapulous Web Site, Tap Tap Revenge Support, All Applications By Tapulous, Tell A Friend, and so on.
