aVia 3.2
aVia makes it easy to browse and playback media on your Android device.

There’s an awful lot of media out there – and there’s quite a bit dotted around your home too. What you need is a single app for accessing it, and aVia aims to be that app.

aVia provides a one-stop shop for all your media playback and sharing needs – it’s evolved rapidly since debuting in October 2011, and has been built from the ground up specifically for Android tablets and smartphones.

Fire the app up and tap My Sources to begin. From here you can browse your local storage, snoop over the USB connection or look for content on your Facebook and Picasa accounts or stored on a DLNA server. Just select an option to browse its contents for media to access.

Select music, and you’ll get an album cover, track info and playback controls – plus you’re at liberty to wander off and browse the rest of your collection or look at some photos without disrupting playback, which can be controlled (along with the volume) via a series of gestures.

Video playback is similarly intuitive, with options for enabling and disabling subtitles, video scaling adjustments and all the all-important playback controls themselves, with options for skipping or shuffling through the contents of the current folder. Photos work in a similar way too, with a slideshow option for good measure.

aVia also allows you to create multimedia playlists, mixing the three media types together. And not only can you access DLNA servers on your network, you can turn aVia itself into a DLNA server too, giving others access to your locally stored content.

It supports a broad range of formats and containers, but video codecs are slightly restricted, although more are promised shortly. It’s the only slight blemish on what is a very capable tool for Android users. 

Verdict:

An excellent choice for Android users looking for DLNA-compliant media player - just a shame it doesn't run on older Android devices.

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
