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.

Modify and create static (.cur) and animated cursors (.ani) of any size and color depth. Animations with custom frame sequence are supported. RealWorld Cursor Editor can modify animations using drag and drop or copy and paste frames using clipboard.

Creating cursor from image

This is a standard function of every cursor maker. RealWorld Cursor Editor offers two ways to convert images to static or animated cursors. Prepared image can be converted using a wizard accessible from the main application screen. If an image needs to be modified before conversion, it can be opened in a built-in raster image editor. A "Remove empty borders" operation is extremely useful when preparing images for conversion.

Modifying cursor image and hot spot

Image in a static or animated cursor can be modified using drawing tools (Pencil, Line, Curve, Rounded Rectangle, Ellipse, Flood Fill, Text, and Projected Shadow) or by filters. Every image can be opened in a separate raster editor window. The raster editor can run filters (Sharpen, Soften, Motion Blur, Drop Shadow, Brightness, Contrast, Gamma, Transparency, Rotate, and custom filters) on the entire image or on selected area.

Cursor hot spot can be changed by clicking on a pixel in raster editor. In case of animated cursor, hot spot can be changed on mupltile frames at once by entering new coordinates.

Modifying animation

Frames in animated cursors can be moved or copied using mouse or clipboard in an intuitive manner. Appending one animation to another is a matter of few seconds. The animated cursor editor allows running filters on all selected frames at once.

Setting frame duration is as easy as clicking on a frame, typing a number, and pressing Enter. Alternatively, duration of multiple frames can be changed at once using the Frame Duration panel.

Creating cursors from 3D models

The latest version features an optional set of shareware tools for 3D modelling, rendering and conversion to static or animated cursors. Parameterized 3D model can be used to create an animated cursor where each frame is rendered using different parameter values.

"Most image editors are impractical, but not this one!"

A little limited in terms of artistic functionality (although no complaints since it's free, and has the option for programmable functions), but in terms of image format handling, import/export and usability, it's the best I've seen! This fantastic tool isn't limited to cursors, go ahead and make pngs or animated gifs with this thing!

  • Ability to make animated gifs and preview the animation while editing
  • Perspective/Bezier transformations
  • Options for pixel alignment & line smoothing
  • Usability & Stability (Very simple but powerful interface)
  • Exportability (flexible exporting: easier to apply what you need out of it)
  • Could do with more keyboard shortcuts
  • When erasing, option to account for smooth edges
  • Could do with custom grids
