Toasts&Tiles for Gmail
Easily manage your Gmail accounts in Windows 8 with Toasts&Tiles

If you’re running Windows 8 or Windows RT and make use of Gmail, there’s no need to head to your browser to check your email. Toasts&Tiles for Gmail is a standalone email client for Gmail that is capable of handling up to three different accounts (including Google App accounts). In some respect, this app is little more than a wrapper for a browser, but it does have a few extras to offer.

First of all, as the name would suggest, there is support for toast notifications. Give the app permission to run in the background and you will be alerted whenever new messages are received. Live tiles are also supported so you can get a quick overview of the state of your inbox from the Start screen.

As this is a modern app is can be used in full screen mode, or snapped to the edge of the desktop in a small, always-visible bar. This provides another handy way to keep on top of your inbox and you can take advantage of all of the usual features of Gmail.

In terms of extra options, there are not very many to explore. The font size of emails can be adjusted as required, and there is the ability to pin individual messages to the Start screen for easy access. But besides this what you have is a beautifully simple email client designed with Gmail users in mind.

It could be argued that the restriction of only working with Gmail is too limiting, but as it is possible to configure your Gmail account to pull in emails from other providers, this is something that can be easily worked around. 

Verdict:

An incredibly simple app, but one that makes it easier to keep on top of your Gmail inbox.

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
