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.

Scientific Word Version 5.5 makes creating professional documents easy. With Scientific Word, you compose mathematical, scientific, and technical documents at the keyboard using natural mathematical notation.

You can choose whether to publish your document on the Web using HTML or PDF or print it with or without LaTeX typesetting.

In Scientific Word, you can choose to typeset complex technical documents with LaTeX, the industry standard for mathematics typesetting. Because of its superior precision and quality, publishers and writers of scientific material use LaTeX extensively. When you typeset, LaTeX automatically generates footnotes, indexes, bibliographies, tables of contents, and cross-references.

This typesetting power comes without your having to learn LaTeX. Many of the more than 150 document shells have been designed to meet the typesetting requirements of specific professional journals and institutions. Scientific Word automatically saves your documents as LaTeX files so you can concentrate on writing a great paper!

"Good for drafting, bad for polishing documents"

I usually draft documents in SciWord and then fine-tune them in WinEdt. SciWord cannot handle large multi-part documents (like books), while WinEdt is excellent at that. MacKichan is a lousy company that does not improve its products over many years.

Pros
  • Visual
Cons
  • Uses proprietary macros, makes difficult using Miktex and journal-specific styles, does not remember workspace layout (if you edit the document in another TEX program and reload it in SciWord, the layout is forgotten). There is no back search from DVI or PDF. Does not have many standard features we are used to in Word (undo, customization, etc.)
