Work with Office documents on your iPad with CloudOn

Previously if you have wanted to work with Word, Excel or PowerPoint on your iPad you have had to either invest in an iOS office suite or use a VPN tool to tap into your computer to edit them there. Now CloudOn makes it possible to create, view and edit Microsoft Office documents without the need to compromise. CloudOn is like having a copy of Office installed on your iPad making it ideal for anyone who needs to work on the move.

The cloud-based nature of the app means that in order to use it you need to be in range of a network or internet connection. While this is less of an issue for owners of 3G iPads, for anyone using a wifi only tablet will find that they are more limited in where they can work with their files. The files you create are stored in your Dropbox account which means that you will be able to access them from any other computer with an internet connection.

CloudOn does not provide you with a fully functional copy of Office on your iPad, but you gain access to a wide range of tools and options. Text and data entry can be carried out just as you would expect and you can check and correct spelling, make and review changes to files, and add comments. It is also possible to work with formulae in Excel, and view and edit transitions and animations in PowerPoint presentations.

There are some limitations to the app – such as a lack of PDF support in PowerPoint – and the slightly tiring nature of typing for long periods of time on a tablet means that this is unlikely to become your main office suite, but it is a handy tool to have installed for those occasions when you might need it.

Verdict:

This is the closest thing we have to an Pad version of Office, and it’s a great tool for anyone who wants to work on their tablet.

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
