Spotify 1.0.7.157
Play and hear audio tracks without any fees whatsoever

iTunes has become a major player in the music industry as it made buying music easy. Instead of walking in to down and purchasing a CD, or even ordering from an online store, you simply select the album, click purchase and it’s downloaded to your computer. What possibly could be better or easier than this system?

What if we told you there was a way of listening and streaming the same tracks, for free, without moving away from your computer? If you have a fast broadband account, streaming high quality audio from the Internet is a distinct possibility. Streaming high-quality video is another matter entirely.

Spotify is the latest Internet sensation. It enables you to setup a free account, download the player to your system, then select the tracks you want to hear. You can setup a play queue with your favourite tracks, so you don’t have to individually select a track every time you want to hear some music. You can listen to online Internet-based radio, too, through your Spotify player.

As you can imagine, there’s a Premium option, too. At $9.99/£9.99 you don’t get any adverts in your Spotify player, far higher quality audio (320Kbps) and various member-only exclusives.

The downside for us is that you can’t stream your Spotify tracks to your wireless devices, which you can do through iTunes and Airport Express. If you use a commercial third-party tool such as Airfoil, you can override this. You can’t use Spotify to manage or sync audio to your iPhone, iPod or other mobile device, either.

What's new in 1.0.7?

- On Windows, the corner X button can close or minimise Spotify. Choose in your Settings.
- Making a collaborative playlist in 1280x800 resolution? Excellent. Now you can see who's added songs in the User column.
- Create Playlist option for playlist context menus to allow you to quickly create a playlist from a right click
- Lyrics, Messages and Play Queue each have their own button. Click once to view, click again to go back.
- We've improved the way playlists are sorted. 
- Having trouble logging in? Try changing your Proxy Settings from the the login page. (It's easy, promise.)

Verdict:

The latest Internet sensation will enable you to listen and stream audio tracks to your computer without paying any fees (Premium option available)

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
