WinZip 3.5.0
Open compress archives on your iOS device with WinZip

The need for compressed files is far less pressing than it used to be. Increased hard drive sizes mean that there is now less need to worry about running out of space, but the humble zip file does still have a place in modern computing. When transferring files online, things can be greatly sped up by reducing the size of the files in question in advance, and the ability to encrypt compressed archives provides a good security option.

For many people, zip files are generally used for email attachments, and this is true whatever platform you happen to be using. If you receive an email with a compressed attachment when you are using your iPhone or iPad, there are no built in tool that will enable you to view these files. This is where WinZip can help, making it possible to extract the content of zip files and view the files they include.

Anyone who has used the desktop version of WinZip’s famous tool may be disappointed to find that the iOS version of the app only features one way handling of file compression. This means that it is only possible to open compressed files - there is no way to create from within iOS using the WinZip app. However, the app can be used to open zip files that are attached to emails and there is support for previewing a wide variety of file formats.

WinZip includes support for compressed files and the app can be used to open zip files that are attached to the emails you reads in the local mail app, as well as those you read with web based email services. There’s little reason to choose WinZip over any of the countless other free compression tools available for iOS, but it does its job well and if you’d prefer to stick with a name you know, this is a good option. A cut-down free version is also available.

New in version 3.5:
- Direct access to Google Drive and OneDrive in WinZip full version
- Support iWork13 files, including Pages, Numbers and Keynote.
- Access to helpdesk when you open an archive file fail.
- Redesigned to make it easier to navigate, and zip, protect and share files

Verdict:

A simple utility from a well-known name. WinZip for iOS is starting to add new features to set it apart from the crowd.

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
