Vector Clock Designer
Drag and drop elements to quickly start building your own clock.

The clock that sits in the Windows Taskbar is functional, but not exactly inspiring. And the desktop gadgets that ship with Vista and Windows 7 aren’t much better, either. While desktop clocks are commonplace, finding the right one to match your desktop or suit your personal demands can be tricky.

Vector Clock Designer figures the best way for you to get the perfect desktop clock is to design your own. It’s an incredibly powerful tool that developers and designers could spend hours tweaking and fiddling with, but thankfully for the rest of us you can eschew all those precise controls in favour of quickly dragging and dropping the elements you want, then quickly colouring them before letting the program take your beautiful design and transform it into a fully working desktop app.

Start with a blank canvas, switch to the Library tab and pick backgrounds, hands, glass effect and finally controls from a large array of templates. Once done, explore the other tabs to change colour or make more extensive changes.

If you’re short on inspiration, you’ll find a number of pre-built clocks included which you can then fine-tune to your own needs, or visit the program's website to download dozens more.

You can preview your clock before generating the final code, and once complete, save your clock before letting the program transform it into a floating desktop clock, ready to tell you the time whenever you need it.
 

Verdict:

A clever design tool, as simple or as complex as you need it to be. If you can’t find a desktop clock to suit, create your own instead.

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
