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.

The Regex Coach is a graphical application for Linux and Windows which can be used to experiment with (Perl-compatible) regular expressions interactively. The application contains the following features:

  • It shows whether a regular expression matches a particular target string
  • It can also show which parts of the target string correspond to captured register groups or to arbitrary parts of the regular expression
  • It can "walk" through the target string one match at a time
  • It can simulate Perl's split and s/// (substitution) operators
  • It tries to describe the regular expression in plain English
  • It can show a graphical representation of the regular expression's parse tree
  • It can single-step through the matching process as performed by the regex engine
  • Everything happens in "real time", i.e. as soon as you make a change somewhere in the application all other parts are instantly updated

"A well-designed way to learn or improve what you 'know' about regex(p)"

Nicely done, IMHO. Helped me get back up to speed within a couple of days (I hadn't used regex and extensions since early Unix days). I hope to somehow repay its generous designed at some point.
