DropIt 8.3
Drag. Drop. Job done. Easy!

Just about every time you use your PC you're involved in some kind of file management: saving work documents, importing digital photos, downloading music, whatever it might be. And yet Windows makes very little effort to help. It doesn't matter how many times you drag and drop spreadsheets into the \Work\Accounts folder, for instance - Windows will never learn that's where they belong, and you'll always have to browse to the folder manually. Unless, that is, you install DropIt.

This interesting tool aims to add some much-needed intelligence to the file management process. Drag and drop a spreadsheet onto its floating icon, for instance, and it'll ask you to create an association between that file type and a folder. Once that's done then in future dragging other spreadsheets there will instantly move them to your preferred location.

You can do exactly the same thing with images, audio files, videos, whatever you like, but DropIt can handle more than just extensions. It's also able to match text within a file name, so for example you could associate "*granny*.jpg" with a Pictures\Granny folder, "*florida*.jpg" with Pictures\Florida and so on. Drag an entire folder of digital photos onto DropIt and it'll then automatically sort them into pictures of Granny, Florida and whatever other topics you've specified (as long as the files are named correctly, anyway). Very convenient and easy to use.

Dropit 8.3 is a minor upgrade. New features/improvements include (see changelog for more):

- improved performance reading file contents
- added %FirstFileContentDate% and %FirstFileContentDateNormalized% abbreviations to get the first date in file content (normalized as YYYYMMDD)
- added %FileContentMatch1% to %FileContentMatch9% abbreviations to use text from file content in destinations
- added %Keywords% abbreviation to get supported file keywords
- added 7ZIP as new standard algorithm for Encrypt and Decrypt actions
- added Additional Filter of file content to a full powered regular expression filter (and removed regular expression support in Literal string filter)
- added "regex(p1,r1)" abbreviation modifier to replace all occurrences of the regex pattern p1 with regex replacement pattern r1 (matched groups are referenced by \1-\9)
- fixed limit of compression password length
- fixed support to use image abbreviations for TIF and CR2 images
- fixed some minor bugs

Verdict:

If you're regularly moving files around then DropIt will be a real time-saver

Unreal Engine 4.15.1

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
