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.

Intuem is a MIDI based music authoring application for Mac OS X that raises the bar for ease of use and accessibility in the music production marketplace. Intuem is the only music authoring application designed specifically for education and home use to provide professional quality results without needing it's users themselves to understand professional audio engineering concepts.

By keeping the interface very simple Intuem presents a composition in its entirety allowing the user to edit each track in its own pitch-space while in context with the others. Intuem uses a single window to display the composition with each track shown in one of three styles: a very small Micro style used as an overview; standard music Notation; and Mega, a "piano-roll" style used mainly for editing. Users can switch between each style on a track-by-track basis, and can group tracks together as if layered on top of each other sharing the same pitch-space. MIDI Controller data can be edited in a separate view attached to each track, and many controllers on a track can be edited at the same time, as well as on many tracks at once.

Intuem closely follows the Aqua guidelines giving its users a beautiful, clear and easy to navigate interface. Intuem's translucent palettes take Aqua one step further, giving users the convenience of movable controls without taking up valuable screen real-estate. Additionally, standard music notation is displayed with a new, very fast drawing custom font for unmatched clarity and performance thanks to Quartz's anti-aliased rendering.

By using OS X's built-in MIDI capabilities Intuem can work with any MIDI keyboard or sound module* as well as QuickTime Musical Instruments plus DLS and SoundFont2 files to provide a rich environment for music production. (* Requires a MIDI interface and Mac OS X drivers. Compatible products are already available from RolandEdirol, Midiman and Evolution.)

Intuem believes in sharing and offers the ability to import and export standard MIDI files (.mid) and can also print your music in standard music notation in the widely used score format musicians are accustomed to.

Very inexpensive. Supports AU instruments (badly) and SF2 sound fonts.

It is rather unsteady, crashes a lot, often inexplicably fails in displaying AU plugins own panels, which renders the aforementioned instruments unusable.

There is no forum and developer does not reply when users report bugs.

  • cost little
  • uncooked, unreliable, totally lacking support
