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.

Beautiful animated 3D intelligent wallpapers live connected to the cloud

We created Active Desktop to offer the best Windows 8.1 (or later) experience to our customers by adding the old abandoned Windows XP feature, called Active Desktop, but in a far more advanced way. This new technology allows any user to connect his desktop background, through 3D wallpapers, to the latest feeds (weather, news), or even to his own Philips Hue light bulbs in a Windows Metro fashion.

Beside this, all wallpapers share the same beautiful design and fluid animation principles, to enhance the user experience with his computer.
