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.

"Amazing software but not compatible with Linux."

Nitro is my default PDF reader/editor in all my Windows computers. Unfortunately it isn't compatible with Linux-Ubuntu. That would make Nitro perfect. I use several Linux computers because Windows XP was discontinued and Windows 8 is a disaster.

  • Able to do everything one can do with Adobe reader.
  • I can sign documents with password protected signatures.
  • Not compatible with Linux-Ubuntu.
