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.

"Sharing is caring or you only grt what you give"

Transmission is the best p2p client for the mac. Don't follow the advice of the first reviewer, most of the tutorial clips on You-tube are created by novice kids whose advice is haphazard and confusing. Instead

Google "transmission mac connections" and take it from there. Also do not be a "leach", if you share you get. A Low upload speed means horrible download speeds and when your download is complete continue to seed the torrent at least to a 1:1 ratio, this will help your future download speeds.
