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.

Nicely designed ebook reader with built-in online bookstore

Elena Santos

Blio supports the following formats

XPS, ePub

Pros
  • Eye-catching design
  • Hundred of free ebooks available for download
  • Supports notes, text highlighting and look-up
  • Buy new books directly from the program
Cons
  • Heavy on system resources
  • Purchases only available in the US, Canada and Mexico
  • Only currently available for Windows

"Does what it says on the tin - and very prettily."

Best reader so far. Easy navigation, notes, annotations and reads both epubs and pdf like a dream. You can "side-load" your own non-DRM books in either of these formats - just copy them into the Blio Folder in My Documents. Very pretty page-curl option. Zoom available for pdfs and you can set text size and colour etc for epubs. Got to try an epub with illustrations next. And some of the free books they offer are quite good too - already tried a recipe from The Silver Plate Cook Book! It has just closed once - when setting up my account. This needs email and password, but doesn't need any billing info. Need to try the Android version next - is it better than CoolReader? Wish there was a Linux version - then I would have the set!

Pros
  • Presentation - clear and pleasing to read.
  • Large free library and easy to side-load
Cons
  • No Linux version (the only thing I can think of)
