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.

" One of the best and its free!!!!!!!"

This has got to be one of the very best astronomy programmes every not only does it do what it says it does but its easy to understand and to operate but it is very educational to even the most first time user in the way everything is explained.

Unlike many programmes it stays with you even while you make a few mistakes and puts you righ.

I use this along with my telescope and it really helps you to get into the astro photography part of astronomy giving some stunning pictures as you go along. well done

a programme worth having even if you are not into astronomy and just want to knoe what something is,!!!!!
