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.

Microsoft's defunct Windows Media Player for Mac

Cyril Roger


Important Note: Windows Media Player for Mac has been replaced by Flip4Mac media player featuring FlipPlayer which is Microsoft's new official WMV media player for Mac. The review here is only for reference and there is no download link. Please download Flip4Mac for the new official Windows Media Player for Mac.

  • Was the old official Windows Media Player for Mac
  • No longer available
  • Replaced by Flip4Mac


A useless piece of software. For a mac user this is about 10 steps backward. The biggest problem with it is that it is a Microsoft heavyweight product with all the bells and whistles that no-one wants. And, of course, it won't run on a modern Mac.
