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.

Install the Vista Sidebar on Windows XP

James Thornton


Please note that the developer no longer seems to be supporting this software.

  • Quick to configure
  • Aesthetically consistent with Vista
  • Impossible to minimize
  • Widgets lack options

If you just can't wait to get your hands on the new Vista Sidebar, one of the new operating system's premier features, this little program should quench your thirst for the time being. Patched together from early Vista beta releases, you can install and run this Microsoft me-to feature in your current Windows XP installation.

The sidebar runs along the... side of your monitor and provides access to "Gadgets" which are basically mini applications such as clocks, weather checkers, RSS readers, etc... They work similarly to Apple's Dashboard Widgets and Yahoo Widgets.
