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.

Pidgin Portable (formerly Gaim Portable) is the versatile Pidgin instant messaging client packaged as a portable app, so you can take your IM settings and buddy lists with you.

It has all the same great features as Pidgin, including support for AOL, Yahoo, MSN, ICQ and Jabber networks, but there's nothing to install on the local PC.

"Way Too Basic"

Pidgin and Pidgin Portable are just way too basic now to be taken seriously. Looks plain, and lacks the features of other Instant Messengers such as Trillian Astra and Digsby. If looks and features don't matter to you than this is a pretty good Instant Messenger for one that doesn't need installing. However if plugins, skins, social network, email and all that matters to you then your better off going with Trillian Astra or Digsby. You pretty much need add-ons for Pidgin to do what Digsby and Trillian do without add-ons. Pidgin is behind everyone else and at the moment it seems their content with being 3rd best. This is still a good messenger I just wouldn't recommend it over Trillian Astra or Digsby unless your storing it on your USB drive.

Pros
  • Free
  • No installer
  • Easy to use
Cons
  • Lacks features others have
  • Not one of the better looking Instant Messengers
  • Shows it's age.
