Use GooReader to access Google Books online and offline

Google Books is a great service that enables you to buy a wide range of ebooks online as well as reading thousands of free books, magazines and articles. While the convenience of being able to read books in your web browser is to be welcomed, it is also a little on the awkward side. This is something that GooReader aims to address by making it possible to read books both online and offline as well as providing you with a dedicated app for reading.

GooReader synchronizes with your Google account so you do not need to worry about having to re-download the same titles, and if you have a large number of books in your collection, you’ll appreciate the ease with which titles can be organized. You have the option of arranging your books in libraries and bookshelves and nothing more than drag and drop is need to group books together in whatever way works best for you.

The fact that your library can be saved to your hard drive means that it is ideal for those occasions when you are going to be without an internet connection. When travelling you cannot be certain of being able to get online whenever you like, so it is good to be able to plan ahead and ensure that you will be able to access you book collection.

There is also a paid for version of the app available, but this differs only very slightly to the free version. If you are willing to part with $19.95, you can free yourself from the advertisements that are found in the free version as well as gaining the option of saving Google Books as PDF files. Aside from these two minor differences, the two versions of the application are identical, so unless the PDF saving option is particularly important to you, there is little point in parting with any cash.

Verdict:

An improvement on browser based reading, the free version of GooReader should be enough for most people.

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
