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.

Tag and organize your mp3, m4a and FLAC files thanks to a full arsenal of features with ease

Yate was developed for people who are serious about tagging and organizing their audio files. The application was designed from the ground up for Mac users. It is a 100% Cocoa written application and uses its own tagging library. Yate will tag mp3, m4a and FLAC files. Yate has a long list of features, including an innovative scripting system called actions. The app also supports integration with Discogs, MusicBrainz and iTunes. All of your settings, customization and user defined components can be exported for backup or for sharing with other users. This is especially great when creating your own actions which then allows you to share them with other users.

Other features include; handles multiple artwork items; supports drag in and drag out of artwork; drag artwork in from the web, any image file, any file containing a png or jpg image and from iTunes; artwork can be saved to files, folder.jpg or to the containing folder’s icon; supports multiple values per field where permitted; supports multiple fields of the same type where permitted; customizable FLAC mappings; change indicator to show which files have changed; changes can be reverted to the last saved version; tracks can be added to iTunes and repairs broken file links in iTunes.

There is very little in the ID3 specification that Yate does not implement. Yate functions seamlessly with iTunes enabling users to both import and export data such as playcount and rating in either direction. The ability to create user definable actions is a feature that really sets Yate apart from other taggers. We feel as though this feature will create a great online forum for sharing and discussing actions between users. Users can expect frequent updates to provide the best possible tagger.

Yate is intended for someone who is serious about tagging and organizing their audio files. This kind of individual wants their data the way they want it. It's their music collection and we strive to let them do whatever they want, however they want.

"An ideosyncratic tool for people with plenty of time and patience"

Yate is a terrible piece of software. Even if I hold a degree in computer science I have not been able to get into the manifold secrets of programming with this tool. First of all a serious documentation is missing! There is only punctual help available for some more or less trivial functions. This tool has so many ideosyncracies it would take a life to understand or even make use of it!

  • nothing for now
  • a serious documentation
  • programming examples, examples, examples...
