WinZip Mac Edition
Compress and decompress files using WinZip Mac Edition

For the Windows platform, WinZip has long been a stable application, making it possible to work with a large number of compressed file formats for both compressing and decompressing. Just like Windows, OS X has long supported the creation of compressed archives as well as extraction of files from such archives, but turning to a third party tool opens up a number of additional options.

WinZip Mac Edition supports Zip, Zipx, RAR, LHA and 7Z formats, and the application integrates tightly with OS X. Quick Look can be used to preview the contents of an archive before extraction, and of course you have the option of extracting a single file or an entire archive.

The application also offers security features that can be used to keep your files safe. Archives can be encrypted and password protected so they cannot be accessed by unauthorised people. If you do not want to encrypt and entire archive but would still like to keep files grouped together, you have the option of encrypting individual files.

WinZip Mac Edition acknowledges the fact that one of the main reasons for compressing files is to attach them to emails. As such the program provides the ability to compress and attach a series of files to an email in a single action helping to save time as well as storage space.

What's new in v4.0?

- Built-in iCloud sharing. WinZip Mac 4 takes sharing further by connecting directly several cloud services, including Dropbox, Google Drive and now iCloud and ZipShare.
- ZipShare. Get direct access to WinZip’s file sharing service, ZipShare.
Share button. Choose your destination, such as Facebook, Twitter or other applications and WinZip uploads the zip file to one of your cloud services, then emails, posts or tweets your link.
Retina support. WinZip Mac 4 is enhanced with high-DPI support to look sharp on Apple Retina displays.

Verdict:

WinZip Mac Edition is comparable to its Windows counterpart. It is fast and effective, but it is a Windows app at heart and there are cheaper alternatives available that are just as capable.

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
