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.

Cygwin is a Linux-like environment for Windows. The Cygwin DLL works with all non-beta, non "release candidate", ix86 32 bit versions of Windows since Windows 95, with the exception of Windows CE. It consists of two parts:

  • DLL (cygwin1.dll) which acts as a Linux API emulation layer
  • A collection of tools, which provide Linux look and feel

"Educational Simulator"

I want to learn how the install a UNIX-like operating system on a Windows 7 platform. When loading Cygwin, will there be output messages similar to the ones output during a real install of Unix software? I am excited that I found this site. To good to be true.
