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.

Recent changes

  • Please note that the system requirements have changed!

  • Spell Catcher X 10.4.1 requires Mac OS X 10.5 and later, running on Intel Macintosh hardware.
  • PowerPC Macintosh users running Mac OS X 10.5 must continue to use Spell Catcher X 10.4 (see 'Related Links' below).

  • New

  • New Cancel Last Expansion command in Spell Catcher’s Input menu. This will delete any text entered since the most recent shorthand expansion or completion. In most applications, this is generally equivalent to choosing Edit > Undo. There are some applications, however, where the Undo command may work differently—undoing more than you might want. The Cancel Last Expansion command is useful in such applications, particularly when you type an abbreviation that you didn’t mean to.
  • New Special Key for use in shorthand expansions to explicitly specify the final position of the insertion point (Insert pop-up > Special Key > Position Cursor Here).
  • Ability to show and sort by Date Modified in Shorthand Glossary document windows. Control-click the table column header to see a shortcut menu to set the visibility of the columns. It’s now possible to hide the Expansion column, as the Expansion is always visible in the text area on the right side of the window.

  • New for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion

  • Spell Catcher’s input method application (64-bit capable) makes use of new-in-Lion input method functionality. The most noticeable will be improved performance of DirectCorrect in many applications.
  • The Spell Catcher application now “opts-out” of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion’s “Reopen windows when logging back in” feature. This means that the Spell Catcher application will only open (at login) when required by its input method, or by the Mac OS X system-wide spelling checker.
  • The Spell Catcher application now supports Mac OS X 10.7 Mac OS X 10.7 Lion’s suspend/resume functionality for the Preferences, Find in References, Check Word, and Edit Macro windows.

  • Enhanced

  • Improvements to Spell Catcher > Get Updates and Languages window, adding a pane to display a full, styled text description of the selected update.

  • Updated

  • Many internal code changes, primarily to support Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) features and capabilities.
  • Minor performance improvements throughout.
  • Built with Xcode 4.2.1 on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.

  • Fixed

  • Properly expand shorthands that include “Special Keys” when using the input methods Completion feature.
  • Properly update the Spell Catcher application’s Dock icon on Lion.
  • Fixes to long-standing problems extracting the correct name, license code, and e-mail address from text dropped or pasted to the License Manager window.
  • Fixes to naming of Ghostwriter files and folders (input method application).
  • Worked around bugs in Mac OS X’s Folder Manager that could prevent Scripting Additions from working in the Spell Catcher application.
  • Numerous other far more obscure issues.
