CleanGenius adds a new uninstall component to boost its set of cleaning tools

These days, it takes an awful lot to use up all the free space on your Mac, but it’s still possible. If you regularly load up with apps, video, music and other large files, all that hard drive space can so disappear, leaving you with little room to play with, and a major clean-up operation to perform.

CleanGenius - the new name for MacCleaning - aims to simplify certain aspects of keeping your Mac’s hard drive lean and mean. Once installed, it’ll sit in the menu bar displaying a bar chart indicating the amount of space taken up on all your attached hard drives. Click this and a more detailed breakdown of your drives is displayed, along with three options.

The first, Fast Clean will quickly clean out selected areas of your drive – as configured by selecting Preferences – to free up drive space. By default Fast Clean empties your system caches, user caches, system logs and user logs, with two additional options – Downloads and Trash folder – selectable for additional cleaning.

You can also unmount removable media from here, simply by clicking the eject button – a message will flash up once the drive(s) have been successfully unmounted.

That was it as far as the original version was concerned, but CleanGenius is more than just a name change and version number update: it now boasts a brand new main interface where you can scan for files to delete before cleaning them, letting you pick and choose exactly what gets removed.

There’s also a major new feature – the ability to uninstall applications. This doesn’t just remove the app folder, but also searches for associated files like preferences, caches and logs. You can select multiple apps to remove in one go, but sadly, unlike standalone free uninstall apps like AppCleaner, you’re not shown exactly what gets deleted, so you’ll have to trust CleanGenius on that score.

CleanGenius will appeal to those Mac users who want to quickly clean out their system without too much hassle. More techie users should take a look at a free alternative called Onyx, which has more advanced options and additional cleaning tools, but is less simple to use.

Verdict:

CleanGenius Free adds a welcome uninstaller component, but still seems a little limited in its overall feature set. Definitely one that will appeal to less experienced users.

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
