WordPress for iPad
Access your WordPress blog on the move.

WordPress is an open-source content management system (CMS) that can be used for anything from a personal blog to a full business site.

The program is based around PHP and MySQL, but you don't have to a web development expert to get everything to work. Support for templates and themes mean you're able to customise the look and feel of your site quickly, without complex coding.

An extensive feature list includes full blog post comment support (with Trackback and Pingback), with robust spam protection; a full registration system so you can optionally have people create profiles before they can comment; there's an option for password-protected blog posts that will be hidden from the public; and there's easy importing from other blog platforms, including Movable Type, Textpattern, Greymatter, Blogger, and b2.

Need even more functionality? Take a look at the plugins - there are thousands freely available, many of which are amazingly powerful. BuddyPress is a perfect example. Install this any you can almost immediately create a custom social networking site of your own. Your users are able to register, create profiles, post personal messages, add friends, create and come together in groups, post directly to their Facebook and Twitter streams, and more. It's hugely comprehensive, and can be extended further with plugins of its own.

Note that this is WordPress for your iPhone or iPad (with native UI). This enables you to edit and control your blog whilst you are on the move.

What's new in version 4.2:
+ Ability to follow and manage your favorite topics.
+ Performance and stability improvements in the Reader.
+ Faster notification syncing with Simperium.
+ Many bug fixes.

Verdict:

Of the two mobile apps, WordPress for iOS offers much less functionality than the Android version. It's good enough for editing and updating posts, but suffers in comparison to its slicker, more powerful brethen.

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
