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.

  • Similar to Photoshop
  • Wide variety of special effects
  • Features extra tools
  • Sliders are uncomfortable to use
  • Some filters are too basic

Active Pixels could be considered as a free Photoshop clone: a program you can use to edit, retouch and optimize your photos.

Going deeper in the program's features, you'll see Active Pixels includes filters, all kinds of tools, support for layers and an automatic photo optimizer.

One of the most important elements in Active Pixels is filters. It features more than 50 filters conveniently categorized in 9 groups, which you can use to obtain all sorts of effects, from applying a newspaper-like view to your picture to reducing noise or grain.

The program's tools are very similar to those of Photoshop, which makes it easy to manage for all Photoshop users out there. But it also has two important differences when compared to Adobe's big shot: it's free and it's only about 7 MB.
