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.

Scrivener is a project management tool for writers. It won't try to tell you how to write - it just makes all the tools you have scattered around your desk available in one application.

Focus on Writing

Scrivener provides access to the full power of the OS X text system - so you have total control over your text.

Add tables, bullet points and images and view your text however you want.


In Scrivener, every document is attached to a virtual index card onto which you can jot a synopsis.

Use the corkboard to shuffle these index cards around - which is instantly reflected in the structure of your draft.


The outliner is another way of viewing the synopses and meta-data of the documents in your project.

Restructure your work easily; get an overview of the project so far and what still needs to be done.

Refer to Research

No more switching between multiple applications just to refer to your research files!

You can keep all of your research right inside Scrivener.

Smile -You Have Snapshots

Never be afraid to make mistakes. Scrivener's "snapshot" feature makes it easy to return to an earlier version of your text.

Full Screen -Evolved

Scrivener boasts the most advanced full screen editing mode out there. Fade the background in and out, choose the width of the "paper" and get writing.


Finished your masterpiece? Now it's time to get it "out there". Export to any major word processor, including Microsoft Word, Nisus Writer and Mellel.

"Best software I ever bought!!"

This software keeps me organized as a writer. I have 5 different projects going and I'm not going crazy: a musical for Relay for Life, a set of poems about cancer, a collection of family recipes as a gift for my sister, a requiem for my grandfather, and a collection of free write prompts for a writing workshop. Everything stays right with the project, including notes, research, successive versions, links within the project, links to pages on the web, AND links to files on my computer.

Now, I could have done all of that and saved all the pieces in one project folder. But there would be no easy way to see the manuscript all at once. With Scrivener, I can see one little piece at a time, move the different parts around easily, save versions and the program compares them and tells me the differences, and then see the whole manuscript by clicking one folder.

Great Tutorial and Manual on Board.
