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.

"Promising but Windows version lags well behind Mac version's features"

As a tool created for writers, Scrivener provides a nice range of features you won't find anywhere else from a compile to multiple formats which fixes everything from page formats to smart-quotes, to a scene-by-scene organization of your project to keywords and meta-words for tagging important persons, places, things, themes, etc.

Overall, I recommend it to the writer over MSword or other general word processors but there is a long list of desirable features already available in the Mac version that are missing in the Windows version. For instance, you will find the corkboard almost useless once you have blocked your project into chapters, comments are rudimentary, and also missing are a range of secondary but important features like exporting your outline to excel (so you can summarize your data in ways that Scrivener does not support) or doc templates.

Despite the flaws, it is a useful tool but prepare to be a bit frustrated.
