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 think that the appearance of Adium is really nice, it is also very easy to use and easy to find things you're looking for a long time on other messhenger applications.

It is one thing I did not like the hero and it was that one can not talk in groups as you can for ordinary windows live messhenger. And I miss that one may have cam against other people. That ye may be given to it and that it looked like the usual msn, you see what you are talking to in chat window.

the last thing I miss is to send voice clips.

if you could have gotten to all of this on the new Adium, it would be top and I had been using Adium more. Since there is no other good msn for mac yet.

Otherwise, as I think Adium works great, looks great and is great.

  • apprearance is really nice
  • you can choose which smily u want to use
  • Easy to use
  • No webcam support
  • You can't send voice clips
