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.

Cons
  • Difficult to get used to desktop sharing concept at first

VirtuaWin is a virtual desktop manager which lets you organize applications over several virtual desktops (also called 'workspaces'). Virtual desktops are very common in Unix/Linux.

Once you get accustomed to using them, they become an essential part of a productive workflow. VirtuaWin is designed to be simple and elegant to use yet still be highly configurable and extensible.

"Not stable"

It's good until it stops working! A couple of times it happened with me. I updated a software already installed and then next time when I started the machine, it's simply not showing the icons in 3 extra desktops. That time even it's not possible to uninstall it also. Although it's switching perfectly between desktops. It could be the problem of the extra module for controlling icons or the main program.
