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.

"FaceTime is the best video chat application."

FaceTime is by far the best way to video call somebody owning an iDevice. It offers a far greater quality and stability than competitors like Skype, especially in low-speed networks, FaceTime remains clear while Skype gets all pixels and the sound gets delayed. Given a medium network strength and a FAST internet connection, FaceTime offers the much clearer image and sound experience. I have now been using and testing FaceTime for more than 1-and-a-half years for several hours daily (my girlfriend lives in Australia whilst I am from Germany), thus am honest calling FaceTime clearly superior to Skype.

Pros
  • Audio Quality
  • Video Image Quality
  • Stability
  • Simplicity
  • Echo suppression
  • System integration and notification, if called
  • Adaption to network strength and speed
  • Says "paused" when minimised, image doesn't just freeze like Skype
Cons
  • Calls between more than 2 people are not implemented
  • Should show more than the last 100 calls in the log
