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.

Connect any webcam to your Mac

macam supports the following formats

macam supports several hundred different cameras! Many Logitech, Creative and other name brand cameras are supported, as are a large number of generic, and store-branded cameras. Thus many cameras are supported that we have not even heard about. You can v

macam is a driver for USB webcams on Mac OS X. It allows hundreds of USB webcams to be used by many Mac OS X video-aware applications. The aim is to support as many webcams as possible.

In addition, macam also supports downloading of images from some dual-mode cameras. macam especially tries to support those cameras not supported by Apple or by their manufacturers.

macam consist of an application and a component. Run the macam application to verify whether your camera works with your Mac and your USB setup.

The component is the actual driver that allows other applications to access the video-stream. (note: iChat does not recognize most USB webcams unless you install iChatUSBCam - this is shareware unrelated to macam)

"re: “Connect any webcam to your Mac”"

A million thanks to the author of this review! I had sleepless nights trying to figure this out! I am currently working on a multitouch project and It was really frustrating trying to set up with my new macbook pro as the solution for computer vision and machine sensing (ccv) that I am using couldn't detect my external infrared webcam. Although, the setup worked perfectly on my pc.

Anyway, thanks for this! I almost gave up the idea of using a MAC for this project.
