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 answer to Google Earth

Nick Mead

Recent changes

  • Location Finder added to Microsoft Download Centre


There is no client to install for Bing Maps (previously known as Virtual Earth) as it is entirely web based. However, you can download the Location Finder utility which attempts to zero-in on your location more precisely, using WiFi access points and reverse IP lookups to determine your computer's location. Microsoft Location Finder is free, and can be downloaded from the Microsoft Download Center.

  • Excellent visualisation features for roads and streets
  • Easy to navigate
  • Interface can be cluttered
  • Floating toolbar can be annoying

Virtual Earth is Microsoft’s next generation mapping and location service. It combines the MapPoint Web Service with new innovations around bird's eye, satellite and aerial imagery, map styles and usability as well as enhanced local search.

The Virtual Earth platform enables you add bird's eye imagery to such things as real estate applications for show prospective clients, enhance store locators with the dynamic, drag-n-drop maps and provide drivers with highly-visual driving directions.

Virtual Earth is powered by Windows Live Local, Microsoft’s online local search and mapping web site. Take your websites and applications to the next level by creating an immersive online mapping and visualization experience with the Virtual Earth platform.


Awful! I printed out 6 different locations when traveling through Pennsylvania and every single one was missing parts of the directions. It always seemed to be in the middle of the directions. It would say take X to Z but it would leave out what to do at Y. I got lost a few times because of it. I ended up using my phone for directions which I didnt want to do, I wanted the battery life in case of an emergency. I won't be using Bing maps ever again!
