Google 5.1
Install the Google app to take advantage of Google service in iOS

Google is known primarily for its search engine and email service, but the company also has a great deal more to offer. Google for iOS is a redesigned version of the Google Mobile App that provides access to not only web searches but also Google Docs, Calendar, Read, Photos, Talk and much more.

Anyone who has used the previous app is in for a pleasant surprise as Google includes a new interface and enhanced search options. As well as being able to search using text, it is also possible to perform voice and searches based on photographs. Once search results are displayed, swipe to the right to view a list of options that will let your refine your search results.

The Google "Goggles" tool is what makes it possible to search for images using your camera, and this can be used in a variety of ways including photographing barcodes to find prices, or scan book covers to find out more about a particular title. A downward swipe at the top of search results is all it takes to start a new search or access other Google web apps.

The list of web apps that can be accessed from Google is extensive – some 13 titles in all. Should you find that you are not making use of all of them, unwanted shortcuts can be easily removed, and the remaining items can be re-arranged to suit your needs.

What's new in v5:

• Recents—see & return to your recently visited pages
• Google button—start a new search with just one tap
• Google Maps—explore interactive maps, nearby places & Street View right inside the app (for iPhone)
• Beautiful new Material Design animations
• Bigger photos in image search
• Looks great on the new iPhone 6 & 6 Plus

Verdict:

An indispensible tool that makes it so incredibly easy to make use of Google’s services on your iOS device.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

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
