Connectify Lite 8.0
Share a web connection between devices with Connectify Lite

When you head out and about with your laptop, there’s a high chance that you will want to make use of the internet, and if you have multiple laptop, or are with friends, it is possible that you’ll have several devices that you want to get online. Connectify Lite is a software router that makes it possible to share a single internet connection between multiple machines.

This is obviously ideal for when you are making use of a paid for connection such as in a hotel or airport, but it can also be used to share a standard wired or wireless connection at home, in the office, or anywhere else you care to imagine – you can even share a 3/4G dongle connection (PRO version only). The program is very simple to configure and in next to no time you can be sharing your internet connection and saving money on connection fees.

When sharing a connection, Connectify also makes it easy to transfer files between devices that are connected to each other. A simple drag and drop process is all that it takes to copy and move files, and file transfers are even possible to a computer than does not have Connectify software installed. This is thanks to the fact that the network that is created has a web interface that can be accessed from any authorized computer so files can be transferred in this way.

There is also a Pro version of the program available which includes a number of extra features as well as enhancement to options that are also found in the free version. There’s better support for the drag and drop transfer of files between connected devices and the AutoInternet Selection feature automatically selects which of your available connections should be shared and makes the necessary changes for you. You also have the option of customizing the SSID and gain the ability to set up a repeater.

What's new in 8.0? Includes stability and performance upgrades for the fastest and most reliable Hotspot experience yet. Connectify Hotspot 8.0 also includes fixes and improvements reported by users on the Connectify Community site and important security updates.

Verdict:

 A great way to save money if you don’t mind sacrificing a little speed online.

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
