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.

"After 3 years of screwing around with this program and developer I'm done"

I purchased the full version with my Mac paying full dollar for it at the time. A couple years later it was necessary to update from Parallels 7 to 9. To which again I paid full price. I loaded the program and tried to update. After several hours I could not and gave up. I contacted support and after 2 hours of screwing around with them they finally got it to work. Less than 90 days later Parallels 10 came out and was I offered a reduced or free upgrade NO, not at all after spending $80 less than 90 days prior to this they wanted another $80 to upgrade. To which I said screw them and let it alone. I now needed this program and called support and they told me there was nothing they could do and I would have to pay full price even though this program has never really worked under any update and I abandoned the program entirely.

Be forewarned the support sucks and they are only after your money and give no concern to customer service.

  • when it worked it ran my windows programs
  • everything from the program to support and customer service
