Tag&Rename
Tag&Rename enables you to edit track information for your music collection

The chances are that you have a large number of MP3s, and possible other music files, on your hard drive. One of the great things about MP3s is the fact that they can be tagged with metadata so that they can be searched in a variety of ways. If you purchase music from one of the many online stores that are available you will probably find that they are correctly tagged up for you, but this is not necessarily the case and if you are ripping your CD collection, you may want a tool to help you out.

This is precisely the job of Tag&Rename. The program can be used to manually or automatically tag a whole series of audio files in batches, using information gleaned from online music databases to identify track details. If you have taken the trouble to organize your music in artist and album folders, this structure can be used as a naming convention for your files and the range of supported file types is impressive.

In addition to text based tags, the program will also download album art for you and you have the option of export data to HTML, CSV or XML files. Tag&Rename can be used to create playlists, but in many respects this is a tool that has already been superseded by the abilities of many music players. This may be a capable piece of software, but at the same time it feels somewhat out-dated and the interface could certainly be easier on the eye.

The program can also be installed as a portable app on your USB drive so you can easily move the software from one computer to another to work with MP3s on different machines. You also have the option of using context menus so if you are browsing through your music collection and spot a file that is incorrectly tagged, you can right click to access program options rather than having to launch the app first and then navigating to the file in question.

Version 3.8.7:
    ◾added "Auto Fit File List Columns" function into main menu -> View
    ◾improved behaviour of the "Part of a compilation" and "Podcast" check boxes in multi files tag editor
    ◾fixed cover images loading from Discogs
    ◾fixed bug in saving windows position

Verdict:

This is an app that is easy to use, but many of its features are already available in media players as standard – and the price is a little offputting.

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
