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.

Are you kidding me? This thing is a nightmare....and VERY evil.

Whenever I try to play some of my games or go to full screen using DOSbox, this "attention whore" of a program wants to steal the focus thus resulting in my program I WANT to use to be minimized. If I try to maximize the program I want to use, the Bing Bar keeps on stealing the focus, so I have to exit the Bing Bar every time. I have even written MS on this matter and it was insultingly suggested I minimize the bar with a given illustration of the bar with the minimize button CIRCLED IN RED! I mean really. As if I didn't know how to minimize a window even though I'm running their stupid OS and software AND I've tried minimizing the Bing Bar to no avail. It STILL wants to keep itself in focus.

This is the WORST piece of counter-productive from MS yet.
