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

  • Fix regression whereby Pester would not come to the front automatically in Mac OS X 10.5.
  • Fix problems where various Pester keyboard equivalents could not be assigned; improve reliability of keyboard equivalent display.

  • Really fix some long-standing inconsistencies between icon and Dock menu time display.


Pester 1.0 is not fully compatible with Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. Apple introduced a bug in a documented feature which causes some natural language dates, such as "tomorrow", "the nextday", "next week", "next month" and "next year" to no longer parse correctly. Pester 1.1b7, available below, works around this problem.

  • Discreet pop up to remind you
  • Countdown and alarm clock
  • Elegant interface
  • Set up multiple alarms
  • Doesn't bring up missed reminders

Pester is a simple alarm clock and timer for Mac OS X. Use it to remind you to catch the bus or attend an upcoming meeting. It is modeled after xalarm in functionality—though not in interface design.

"Needs work"

This is pretty good, except for the fact you can't alter an alarm once it is set, and you can't make the alarm repeat with the time/date entry.

  • Works with Growl
  • Editing alarms once they are set
  • Make both options of selecting the alarm time/date repeatable
