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.


First public version without expiration date.
Fences is free and will remain free; developers hope to have a Pro version with even more features available later this year.

  • Very easy to use
  • Fully customizable icon boxes
  • Includes layout templates
  • Double click to make icons disappear
  • You can't add new shortcuts directly to boxes
  • Doesn't include themes

"Easy to use & customize. No silly bells and whistles. I wouldn't be w/o it."

One of the 'Cons' stated in the Softonic review is inaccurate - you can, in fact, designate a box/fence into which new short cuts will be automatically placed. Choose an existing one, or create one for the purpose, e.g. 'New Shortcuts'. This helps keep the desktop organized and tidy, and saves having to hunt down new icons. An excellent little program with one minor flaw in the current version: if you choose 'List' in the Fences view options, you will often find that it defaults to 'Details' view when you next open Windows. For that, I can only score it 9/10. Well worth the low cost.
