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.

Used to be called "Winamp Playlist Creator"

The name of the program says it all - with Playlist Creator you can create playlists easily and quickly. The composition and creation of a playlist is done within seconds: Just add all desired files, enter the name of the playlist and select its save location and one moment later your first playlist is already done! By the way, the fastest and easiest method for adding files to the playlist is via drag and drop from Windows Explorer.

Playlist Creator supports the powerful open-source library id3lib. Thus a reliable readout of ID3v1 and ID3v2 tags in combination with a very high processing speed is guaranteed. The user can choose if the program should readout ID3tags and which data exactly should be extracted from tags. You can also create dynamic titles using simple variables.

"Fantastic little program!"

I just downloaded it, v. 3.6.2, and it is a very good program to use. You need to open your song files from Windows Explorer and then highlight them to drag over to the Playlist Creator window. The program allows easy manipulation of moving files into the correct order before saving them, with a number of options to set up in preferences. I found it far superior to WMP in power and ease of use.

The one thing it does not allow, which may not be an issue for anybody, but I don't think you can make .wpl format playlists, which are native to Windows Media Player. But WMP is able to recognize the .m3u format as a playlist, so it's not really an issue.

There are some free programs out there that can convert from one format to another, if needed. I sent the creator a few bucks in recognition of a good job. Program is totally free to use.
