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.

"It's not free to use, it's free to download, that makes the license a trial"

It's a free download of a trail edition STILL in the free download section. Over a Year Ago I downloaded this and got no free trial. Because after I searched for a free video editing software and this popped up I thought great, but after you download it and go to use it for the first time, you have to register at the site. That's no big deal, but when you register at the site, you learn you get a key for a 30 day free trial. Which means that the claim of a free license is FALSE. That day I emailed back and forth with the developers who were rude to me... But I have a Bachelors Degree in Information Systems and an Associates in Computer Science with a National Science Foundation Award for Excellence in Science and Mathematics so I can safely say this. It's a lie to get you to download the software, the developers claim that the download is free. Sure the download is free, but so is any other TRIAL EDITION, you can keep any TRIAL EDITION forever and you will not violate the copyright law. After I complained, my free trial was taken away and my review was taken down by Softonic as Lightworks claimed I had lied about it not being free. Saying that the software is actually free. *shakes head* I avoided Softonic for a long time after that.
