Soft4Boost Update Checker
Quickly check your installed programs for available updates

Soft4Boost Update Checker is a lightweight tool which quickly checks your installed applications and lets you know if some of them have updates available.

The program is very simple. There's no component left running on your PC all the time, and no complex settings within the tool itself - all you have to do is launch it, and available updates will be displayed in a few seconds. If you'd like to take advantage of one, select it, click the "globe" and you'll be taken to the relevant home page. Otherwise, close Soft4Boost Update Checker and check back a week or two later.

How effective is this? Soft4Boost don't tell you which programs it supports, or even how many, which left us a little suspicious. But running it on a few test systems highlighted updates for Adobe AIR/ Flash/ Shockwave, FileZilla, Firefox, GIMP, IrfanView, Skype, SmartFTP, QuickTime, Macrium Reflect, VirtualBox and various Nero and Cyberlink programs: more than enough to be useful.

Verdict:

Soft4Boost Update Checker provides a quick and easy way to detect programs with available updates (but you'll still have to download and install them yourself)

Spotlight: Free Full Software

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
