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.

Make your work easier with concept maps

Elena Santos


Unfortunately, the developer no longer seems to be supporting this software.

  • Nice design
  • Maps include colors and cool animation effects
  • You can save maps as images
  • It may feel a bit too simple

Cayra is a free desktop application that lets you represent tasks, ideas, concepts and other items in a graphic, well-structured way. Cayra is based on such visualization techniques, as Mind Mapping and Concept Mapping and allows you to conveniently work with big maps.

You can use Cayra for:

  • Studies
  • Brainstorming
  • Project and people management
  • Planning and organizing
  • Creativity
  • Decision making
  • Problem solving
  • Time management

"It would be good if it didn\'t crash all the time."

Using the latest .NET 3.5 fully up to date with all the Microsoft fixes on both a laptop running Windows XP 32 bit and on a desktop machine running Windows 7, 64 bit Cayra simply crashes when started. If I downgrade the .NET platform to 3.0 then it runs unreliably.

This could have been very good software, if only it was reliable.

During the two periods of about 5 minutes when I did get it running it showed itself to be potentially extremely good. It has some new and innovative concepts and would be very usefull if only it didn't crash.

  • No central node!
  • Map centres itself on the node you have selected.
  • Very colourful and expressive display.
  • Crashes all the time.
