Facebook Messenger
Manage all of your messages in one place with Facebook Messenger

Facebook has been making strides into the instant messaging market, and Facebook Messenger is its standalone app for those who want to chat without the distraction of timelines and all the other Facebook paraphernalia.

Long-established on iPhone and Android, it’s only since version 7.0 that Facebook Messenger has embraced the iPad properly, taking full advantage of its increased screen real-estate. This redesign aside, the different versions share the same broad look and work in a similar fashion too.

You can keep up with recent contacts, search for people to initiate conversations with and even set up groups for collective chats. The app also supports VoIP calling for voice chats too.

Posting is as simple as tapping in some text, or you can step things up and send smileys, photos and even recorded snippets of audio.

The app itself will appeal mostly to those Facebook chat addicts who want fewer distractions and a simpler, most focussed user interface, although the fact you can’t hide the left-hand pane in the new iPad version will annoy those used to being able to focus in on a single chat window in the phone version.

Messenger is a simple idea executed well, developed from an app Facebook bought three years ago and ultimately is worth installing if you love chatting with others through Facebook’s own IM network.

New in version 7.0:
- All-new native iPad app.
- Videos shot in Messenger can now be saved to your camera roll.
- Reliability fixes.

Verdict:

A wonderful messaging system that combines the best elements of picture messaging, Facebook chats and SMS into one handy communication tool.

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
