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.

  • Can be intimidating for less tech savvy

SpeedFan is a freeware program that monitors voltages, fan speeds and temperatures in computers with hardware monitor chips. SpeedFan can even access S.M. A. R. T. info for those hard disks that support this feature and show hard disk temperatures. SpeedFan supports SCSI disks too. SpeedFan can even change the FSB on some hardware (but this should be considered a bonus feature).

At the lowest level, SpeedFan is a hardware monitor software that can access temperature sensors, but its main feature is that it can change fan speeds (depending on the capabilities of your sensor chip and your hardware) according to the temperatures inside your PC, thus reducing noise and power consumption.

Not a good choice for a security conscious power user, as it needlessly phones home after install is complete. Thus Speedfan 4.46 is a security risk, which could either be compromised in the future by a hacker, or the programs author, or it already is a key logger or otherwise.

Pros
  • Works great at monitoring temps and fan rpm's.
Cons
  • Attempts to phone home at every boot. Once it's blocked, it functions incorrectly. It should have a user selectable switch, that would either allow or not allow internet access after initial install, which is to recognize which sensors your motherboard has on board, but is not required after that is completed.
