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.

Nicecast was really an exciting application. It even got some awards in 2004... But now, as it was mentioned above, Nicecast is now out of trend. Really weak functionality as for today. MP3 codec is fine. But nowadays people prefer HE AAC streams (32 or 64 kbit/s) for listening on mobile devices with expensive traffic. HE AAC came out in 2004... Icecast2 server got AAC streamming support in 2004... I'm watching at '2013' on my calendar now...

Multistreaming gives people a choice in desired sound quality. Nicecast does not have this feature also.

Nicecast supports some Icecast2 server features like intros and some others... No! Wrong! Built-in Icacast2 server supports it's features, but to use them you should perform some dark rituals like openening application's contents and editing configuration files with coding and changing scripts...

More and more windows software provides great statistics about listeners: max/min/avg of all connections and unique listeners per hour/day/week and so on, geographical location of listeners and other stuff. Nicecast shows only current number of connected listeners. I believe, somewhere in logs there should be an info of max listeners, but again it's a kind of voodoo magic to find and organize this information.

Let's mention that we' chosen macs for their ease of use and intuitive interface. So, this app was on top in 2004. Now it's really useless. It's like an iPhone firmware 1.0: it was really cool in 2007, letting you make calls, write sms (no mms) and scroll contact list. But today it's not enough.

Installation: no step-by-step guide

Appearence: nothing changed since fist versions

Usability: Hard to use some hiden very deep from common users Icecast2 feaures. Not released features I should say.

Functionality: I'm laughing...

Stability: very stable))) taking into consideration the absence of features and functionality.
