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.

I have used AutoCAD since R12 R2012 is good for 2d sketches but it really hasnt progressed from a drawing board with the ability to to boolean type operations. Mesh commands are a joke. My company left ($$$#0#$$$) at R14 to Pro/E. Good move enabled us to actually send stuff to the toolmakers and improved the accuracy of drawings. But anyone that stuffs around with viewports dimscales and tessellation lines will understand how counter productive it really is. However for work I use Catia or Creo. ( yes on a mac too)

  • Good for 2D
  • 3D definite weaknesses including inability to export to Step, iges, parasolid files, No Finite analysis features.
