Unrestricted Web Access

In iTC, even if my app doesn't allow you to see other pages apart from specified ones by me, do I have to select Unrestricted Web Access taking my age rating to 17+ ? In the explanation, it says "?Select Yes if your app allows users to navigate and view web pages, such as with an embedded browser." which makes me think I have to select it, even though the user cannot change the page...

Any ideas?

If the user can't change the page then I would think it is not "unrestricted". I would not select "yes".

But their explanation contradicts that, I had exactly the same thoughts as you though.

I am not an iOS developer so can not say for sure, but from reading what you typed ...
?
"Select Yes if your app allows users to navigate and view web pages, such as with an embedded browser"

I would be guessing, if they can navigate away from the links or pages you provide, then it is unrestricted. If they can not (no address bar) i.e. no way to enter a different URL, then no it is restricted.
I think the 'navigate' part is what would be the deciding factor.

Just my 2cents worth

It depends on the reviewer; some will use common sense, some will be sticklers for the wording that you point out.

My own feeling is that 17+ is a major downer. I would put it through answering 'no'. If you get a hard arse they'll just come back and tell you to change it, so you lose nothing in the end, but at least have the chance to slip through without the 17+ rating.
