Share large files with ease using Share by BitTorrent

It can be tricky to find a way to share large files with people over the internet. One option would be to split a large file into a number of smaller pieces, but this can be a pain. Share is a free tool from the people behind BitTorrent that makes it easy to share files of any size with anyone online. Raher than having to rely on email attachments, Share enables you to share files using the BitTorrent P2P protocol - and thankfully this is far less complicated than it might sound.

Anyone who has used uTorrent will be aware that the program is wonderfully easy to use, and Share takes a similar approach. Sharing files is a simple matter of signing up for a free account with Share and then selecting which files should be shared. Selecting files can be achieved by browsing through folders, or you can simply drag and drop files onto the app interface.

There are a number of cloud storage services available which advertise themselves as being ideal for file sharing. While there are other services that make it possible to upload files and share links with other people which they can use to download the files, there are almost always limits on file sizes. This is not the case with Share – you are free to share files of any sizes as there are no restrictions on how it may be used.

Share can be used to share files with individual people, or you can configure groups for mass sharing. When files are shared in this way, greater download speeds can be achieved in much the same way as when a particular torrent has a large number of seeds as it means that bandwidth can be shared. When sharing, you can share using email addresses as a point of contact or you can share via Facebook and the ability to add comments makes it possible to communicate information without the need to send separate emails/

Verdict:

A great way to share files which helps to overcome a number of frustrations when it comes to sharing large files.

Unreal Engine 4.8

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."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
