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.

"Lets you manage your photos, images, and other digital assets your way."

IMatch5 is a highly flexible, powerful, yet approachable software program for managing your photos and other files (e.g. Office documents, PDFs). Most people of course will use it for their photos. If you've ever experienced the problem of finding a specific photo or set of photos in your collection, IMatch5 has the tools to make that task a breeze. Photo rating, cataloguing, searching, managing into collections, are all tasks you'd expect a DAM tool to do well, and IMatch does them very well, with an intuitive interface (highly customizable, of course). However, it also does a lot more!

Confused by the mess created by different 'standards' for photo meta-data? Frustrated by IPTC, EXIF, XMP, etc, and their apparent inability to co-exist? IMatch5 implements the Metadata Working Group's (MWG) recommendations for managing meta-data. It will automatically keep those different parts of your photos' meta-data in sync. Don't worry, like most aspects of IMatch5, if you don't like the 'rules' it suggests, you can bend them by overriding default options to your own needs. Need to dig a little deeper into your photos' meta-data? IMatch5 incorporates Phil Harvey's ExifTool - the gold standard of meta-data management. You can execute ExifTool commands directly within IMatch5 for maximum flexibility.

IMatch5 integrates really easily with other software in your digital imaging workflow. If you shoot raw and use raw conversion software, IMatch5 allows you to manage the derivatives of your images (e.g. jpgs, tiffs) as versions of your master raw images. Set up automatic version linking rules, and it's a snap. Oh, and the 'buddy' or 'sidecar' files created by your raw converter or imaging editng tools are managemed automatically by IMatch5 too.

If all of the features that IMatch5 offers aren't enough - perhaps you have something very spcific/unique you need to do in your workflow - IMatch5 provides an extremely powerful Visual Basic like scripting utility. As a software developer with many years experience, I can honestly say that the scripting capabilities in IMatch5 are the best I've ever seen in such a product. If you know some Visual Basic (or are prepared to learn a little), you can really extend IMatch5's capabilities to your own unique needs.

IMatch5 documentation is second to none. The help file itself is a superb achievement and a genuinely useful reference guide to learning and getting the best out of IMatch5. Context-sensitive, you get the specific help you need wherever you're in the software. Indexed, cross-referenced, and liberally sprinkled with meaningful examples, it's a tour-de-force of user guides.

Finally, a word about the IMatch5 user forum. A great buch of friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful folks - always ready to provide assistance, comments, alternative ways of doing things, and of course constructive criticisms and feature suggestions. Yes, the product developer reads these regularly, responds, and takes action!

Highly (and personally) recommended.

  • Flexibility
  • Genuinely useful feature set
  • Implements MWG guidelines for meta-data management
