LogMeIn Ignition 3.5
Access your PC or Mac from your iPhone or iPad

Everyone has experienced the need to access their computer - home or office - when out and about. Whether you have forgotten to take a copy of a file you need to work on, or simply want to shut down your machine without having to hop in the car to do so, the uses for remote access are almost endless.

Using LogMeIn Ignition, you can use your Mac or PC from your iPhone or iPad as if you were sat in front of it. There are obviously compromises to be made due to the smaller screen sizes, particularly in the case of the iPhone, but the app has been designed in such a way to negate this problem.

Getting up and running could hardly be simpler, and you should be remotely connected to your computer in a matter of minutes. Your remote sessions are password protected and encrypted to prevent snooping, and you can configure profiles for multiple machines if you regularly remotely access several computers.

There is no getting away from the fact that iPad users get a far better deal here, but the retina display of the iPhone 4 does an excellent job of displaying the contents of a full sized desktop. On the negative side, while it is possible to remotely shutdown a computer you are connected to, a lack of support for Wake On LAN means that it is not possible to switch them on.

LogMeIn Ignition is now a free download, but requires an in-app LogMeIn Pro subscription.

What's new in v3.5?

- Bugfixes

Verdict:

A remarkably simple way to access your computer from your idevice. This is an impressive use of technology which, although not perfect, is incredibly useful.

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
