Opera Mini 10.0
Opera Mini returns with a new look and plenty of new features.

Although we look for and download various apps for our Blackberry or iPhone, most of the time we spend checking our email or looking at our favourite websites for the footy, tech and company news. Problem is that the browsing experience on a mobile device isn’t quite at the same level as that on a desktop web browser. It’s difficult to manage multiple windows, share passwords from your desktop and mobile browser and flick between your favourite sites.

You may not have realised this, but Opera are big players in the mobile market and ship a version of their browser for your phone. They’ve just announced a brand new version which they regard as the next version of mobile browsing.

The new Opera Mini browser is like a cut-down version of their Opera desktop web browser. Launch it on your mobile and you’ll see your speed dial options where you’re presented with a number of small icons which you can configure as your favourite sites. Opera Mini is designed for your mobile, so it’s easy to control using the touch screen. The tabs are designed so you can quickly flick between them using your finger.

Opera Mini will also enable you to store personal information, including your web passwords, meaning you do not need to keep entering the same password every time you visit a site. Whether this will work with MyOpera, enabling you to synchronise data between your desktop and mobile browser, is yet to be finalised.

Opera Mini 10 features the following changes:

- Synchronize your bookmarks with Opera on other devices
- Previously entered domains will be pre-filled when entering an address

Verdict:

Opera Mini gets a welcome facelift with this new release, and its built-in compression technologies make it worth using when you're on a slow or bandwidth-limited connection.

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

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."
