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.

GrandPerspective is a small utility application for Mac OS X that graphically shows the disk usage within a file system. It can help you to manage your disk, as you can easily spot which files and folders take up the most space.

It uses a so called tree map for visualisation. Each file is shown as a rectangle with an area proportional to the file's size. Files in the same folder appear together, but their placement is otherwise arbitrary.

"Best app EVER for helping you see what is filling up your drive"

I love this app! it's far and away the best, most intuitive way to figure out what's really clogging up your mac's storage (hard disk, ssd, etc.). The reason why it's so great is that it shows you visually. I have used (and appreciated) apps like whatsize in the past. Whatsize does something similar to grandperspective — you tell it which folder or storage device to analyze, and it comes back with a report about what's taking up all the space in that folder or on that device. But whereas whatsize produces an interactive report in list form, grandperspective shows you visually. The larger the file, the larger the rectangular area of the grandperspective window it takes up. Even with hundreds of thousands of files, it's really simple to see what the storage hogs are. Rolling over any of these rectangles will show you the name of the file, as well as its path (the series of folders you open to find the actual file).

Pros
  • VISUAL display of the relative sizes of files on the drive
  • Seems faster than other solutions similar to it
  • Intuitive to use — just point it at a folder or drive and set it to go. When it's done it just pops up the interactive viewer
  • It's free!
  • Easy to find the disk hogs from its intuitive roll-over interactive viewer
Cons
  • Nothing much — fabulous the way it is
  • If you INSIST... Would be great if it updated its view in real time, as you deleted files from the drive. But ONLY because you asked.
