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.

Small and simple screenshot tool

Jon Riggall

Lightscreen supports the following formats

PNG, JPG, BMP

Pros
  • Three different types of screenshot
  • Excellent configuration options
  • Lightweight
Cons
  • Only saves in three formats

"Nice simple program, but WTF - takes up ~20MB RAM to start-up??"

It's a nice, simple program, but defies the suggestion from it's name as being "light". Task manager shows that it's taking just shy of 20,000kB of RAM just to start-up!! And taking screenshots adds to the memory bloat, 36,576kB after ONE full screenshot. Please trim the memory consumption down in future versions. KISS. For now uninstalling and returning to PicPick.

Pros
  • Simple (that's great).
Cons
  • RAM hog extraordinaire.
