Ubuntu One 4
Get 5GB of cloud storage space for free

Ubuntu One is an online backup, storage, streaming and file sharing service.

Despite the name, you don't have to use Ubuntu (or know anything about it) to use the service. It offers 5GB of free online storage space to anyone who installs one of the clients, and there are builds available for Ubuntu, Windows, Android 2.1 and higher and iPhone/ iPad iOS 3.1 or higher.

Once installed the program works much like many other cloud storage clients.

There's a local Ubuntu One folder where you can save files and have them automatically synced with your online account, and you can also synchronise other folders if necessary.

A "Share folder" option in your browser-based dashboard will send a link to the email address you specify, allowing the recipient to see and download any of those files.

Handy settings include the option allow you to limit Ubuntu One's upload and download speeds, so it won't hog all your network bandwidth.

And there are commercial add-ons available, if you need them. Music streaming gets you 20GB of storage for $3.99 a month, and streams content to Ubuntu One's Android or iPhone apps. Or you can add extra storage in 20GB blocks for $2.99 a month, or an annual $29.99.

Verdict:

An easy-to-use cloud storage client, particularly interesting if you need to sync files across Windows, Ubuntu, Android and/or iOS devices.

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."
