BullGuard Mobile Security for Android
A comprehensive mobile security suite

BullGuard Mobile Security for Android is a comprehensive internet security suite for your mobile device. Up to three devices, in fact, with the standard licence, and this can be upgraded to cover five.

Once installed BullGuard's powerful antivirus engine automatically scans your system, detecting and blocking malware before it can do any harm.

This release now checks apps before they're installed, again blocking anything untrustworthy.

Better still, new cloud-based technology ensures you always get the benefit of the latest antivirus definitions, without the hassle of regular updates, improving performance and keeping battery-draining system load to a minimum.

If your phone goes missing then the antitheft system provides strong all-round protection. A Scream function locates devices nearby; GPS location picks up everything else; you can remotely lock or wipe a device, and you can have the program automatically lock or wipe data if anyone tries to change the SIM card.

A new Call Manager automatically blocks spam from short code numbers (anything with 5 or less digits). Other numbers may be added manually, from your contacts or call history. A Blocked Items tab shows you what has been blocked recently, and a Whitelist ensures trusted numbers can always reach you.

Parental Controls allow parents to monitor installed apps, calls, messages and pictures, as well as locating a device, and all from any internet-enabled computer.

A revamped backup tool offers one-tap backup for your contacts, calendar and messages. Sadly, while it can also back up your files (music/ video/ pictures/ more), you'll need to purchase backup space for these separately. This isn't cheap, either, with prices starting from an extra $8 for 5GB, to $130 for 100GB.

Verdict:

BullGuard Mobile Security for Android provides solid security for a wide range of threats. The cloud-based antivirus engine should improve accuracy and cut its battery-draining resource use, too. Backup space is a little expensive, but the suite scores highly where it matters, and the 15-day trial build means you can try before you buy.

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
