Email Checker Basic 1.0
Check whether an email address really exists

Email Checker Basic tries to verify that an email address is legitimate, without requiring you to send an email.

The program couldn't be much simpler to use. Type your address in the box, click "Check Now", and wait for the verdict: easy.

And if you want to understand how Email Checker Basic came to its conclusion then reading the contents of the Interaction box will tell you more, as this details its conversation with the remote server.

There is one small problem here, though: verifying email addresses is more complex than the authors seem to believe, and while the program worked just fine with some servers, with others it would always confirm an address as valid. Even if we'd just made it up.

This doesn't mean the program is entirely useless, though - you just have to keep this problem in mind. And if you want to check john.smith@somesite.com, try a couple of nonsense addresses with the same domain, first: donkeynose@somesite.com, ladderfire@somesite.com or whatever. If you can get Email Checker Basic to tell you that one of your nonsense addresses doesn't exist for a domain, then you know verification is working, so you can test the real address and trust the results.

(And if you're still not sure that it's worth the hassle, you might have a point, but at least the program is portable. There's no adware, nothing to install, if it doesn't work out then delete the download and carry on as before.)

Verdict:

Email Checker Basic is perhaps a little too basic for its own good, and doesn't work with all mail servers, but can still be useful occasionally.

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."

    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
