Adobe Proto
Create web site and app mockups on your tablet with Adobe Proto

The days of using a drawboard are all but gone, but the digital equivalent is still going strong. Adobe has a range of design tools that covers a range of circumstances, and Adobe Proto makes it possible to take your designing on the road with you so you can continue working on your iPad when you are away from your computer.

The app can be used to create mockups of web sites, print page layouts or even application interfaces. You have the option of starting completely from scratch or you can work with CSS templates so you can get up and running as quickly as possible. Many designers feel completely at home working with a pencil and paper, and the jump to working with a touchscreen devices should feel natural and liberating.

The aim of the app is to make it as quick and easy as possible to create basic designs, and to this end there are a number of pre-designed wireframe components that can be simply dropped into place. From tabs and toolbars to menus and toolboxes, all manner of common interface components are here for you to use leaving you free to spend more time working on your design and layout than drawing individual objects.

While the idea behind Adobe Proto is sound, in practice it is a little limited. The lack of an export option is a serious oversight that will hopefully be addressed in an upcoming update, but it is still a helpful tool to add to your design arsenal.

Verdict:

A handy design tool that is somewhat lacking, but shows interesting signs of promise for future versions.

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
