Find My Friends
Discover where your friends are with Find My Friends

There are numerous uses for location aware apps, such as tagging photos and triggering reminders, but Find My Friends makes it possible to find out where your friends are currently located. The app enables you to send a request to your friends, and providing they also have the app installed, they will be able to share their location with you.

You can view the location of your friends that have chosen to share their information on a map and this data can be used in a variety of ways. if you are planning on meeting up with people in an unknown location, the app can be used to keep track of where you are in relation to each other. The app is even able to provide directions to make it easier to meet up.

Parents may well be interested in using the app to keep an eye on where their children are, but this will involve convincing them to share their location. For anyone concerned about the privacy implications of broadcasting their location, there are simple options available that enables you to control what is shared, to whom, and when.

In order to make use of Find My Friends you need to be using an iPhone, iPod or iPad running iOS 5, as well as having an iCloud account. If you do not already have an iCloud account, you have the option of creating one from within the app.

Verdict:

An interesting use of location awareness that can be used for fun or peace of mind.

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
