1Password for Android 4.1.6
Create, use and edit secure passwords with 1Password for Android

The number of web sites and applications that require users to log in with a username or email address and password is staggering. For maximum security you should try to have a unique, hard-to-remember password for each login you use, so if one gets compromised, the rest remain safe.

Doing this by hand is almost impossible, which is where a password-management service like 1Password comes into play. This lets you store all your passwords securely in a vault that’s unlocked by a single master password (this is the one you need to remember), then auto-fills them into websites as and when required. It’ll even generate secure passwords for you.

The service originated on PC and Mac, extended to mobile and – until recently – was limited to a read-only app on Android. That meant you could access your previously stored passwords through the app, but not add to them or edit existing info.

From version 4, however, the app has been rebuilt from the ground up to be fully functional, so you can update your passwords from your Android device, then sync them back to your computer or Apple mobile or tablet if you wish. Or, of course, you can use the app completely standalone.

Unfortunately this comes at a cost – the free version of the app is the old, read-only version, but a one-off, in-app purchase unlocks the rest of the functionality.

Verdict:

Now that 1Password has implemented all of its functionality into the Android app, it could become a compelling alternative - depending on its price - to rival services like Lastpass.

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
