Apps & Games content ratings on Softonic

Content ratings help you understand the type of content you might find in an app or game, so you can decide if they are suitable for you and your family.

What do the ratings actually tell me?

Content ratings describe the minimum age we feel the content is suitable for. It does not indicate that the app was specifically designed for that particular age, or if a certain level of skill is required to play the game or use the app.

Where can I find the content ratings?

You will find the content ratings on every app or game page.

Why are some apps or games unrated?

If an app or game does not have a rating, it means that it has not yet been rated, or it’s been rated and we’re working to update the page.

Rating Systems

Softonic uses the rating systems by PEGI and ESRB. The ratings you see may vary by country or region.

"Won't update"

It was right on the money when I installed it, but at the moment it is showing Japan as daylight even though it is plainly dark outside, being 9:30pm here.

It won't show the live status, which is very frustrating. I can't find anything saying this is a limitation of the trial version. I certainly won't buy the program unless I know it will update automatically.
