Evernote for Windows 8
Evernote for Windows 8

The idea behind Evernote is neither new nor ground-breaking, but this is an app that has gained a very loyal following for doing what it does so well. It is an app that can be used in a variety of ways from creating an online repository for your ideas, to creating a recipe book, to collaborating on work – there are virtually endless possibilities. The beauty of the app is that all of your data can be stored in the cloud and synced between multiple devices.

The Windows 8 version of the app is somewhat different from its predecessors in terms of appearance, but the basic idea is still the same. The tiled interface is somewhat reminiscent of the Springpad web site, and everything you store in your account is presented in a clean and easy to read way. There is also an interesting ‘snap view’ which can be used to display the contents of Evernote in a smaller window so you are able to see other applications to allow for easier sharing.

As is to be expected for a Windows 8 app, there is a strong focus on features that are advantageous to users with touchscreen devices. This means that it is very quick and easy to scroll through large amounts of information without having to use scroll bars and to pull down navigation bars and other program elements. For anyone using a mouse or trackpad these feature are still available but are slightly more awkward to access.

Evernote themselves are quick to point out that this is a simplified version of the app that has been optimized for touchscreen devices. If you’re using to working with mobile devices and slightly cut down versions of apps, you’ll know pretty much what to be expect, but seasoned Evernote users are likely to be a little disappointed by what is a slightly limited version of an otherwise excellent online service.

New in version 2.0:

  • New hub page gives you an overview of your account
  • Activity feed notifies you about updates in shared notebooks
  • Shortcuts gives you quick access to important notes, notebooks and tags
  • Improved note editing with Make Plaintext and Simplified formatting
  • Supports two step verification for login
  • Numerous bug fixes

Verdict:

While there’s nothing wrong with Evernote for Windows 8, it is disappointing in its limited nature and rather simplistic look.

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
