CloudyTab 1.6
Open your iCloud tabs in your default web browser, even if it’s not Safari.

If you frequently switch between iPad, iPhone and Mac, one of iCloud’s best features will be its Tabs function, which lets you sync your open browser tabs in the cloud. Unsurprisingly it’s only designed to work with Safari, which is fine if you’re a fan of all things Apple, but not so great if you prefer an alternative browser.

CloudyTabs is an add-on that partially fixes the Mac-end of this problem. CloudyTabs adds extensions for whichever web browser you’ve set as your default on your Mac (including Firefox and Chrome), allowing you to access any open tabs currently synced via iCloud Tabs through either browser.

It’s simple to set up and install: download, unzip and drag CloudyTabs to your Applications folder, then attempt to open it. If Mavericks complains about it being from an unidentified developer, open System Preferences > Security & Privacy and click Open Anyway to unblock it.

You’ll now see the CloudyTabs icon appear in the menu bar – click this to see which tabs are open on which devices, then click one to open it in your default browser, or [Cmd]-click to open it in the background. You can also open all the tabs from a specific device via the Open All Tabs From menu, or type the first few letters of a tab to select it.

Want to know when your Mac last synced with iCloud Tabs? Simply hover the mouse over the CloudyTabs menu bar icon and wait.

And that’s basically it – CloudyTabs is a neat shortcut for accessing your synced tabs through a different default web browser to Safari, but it doesn’t work in the opposite direction, so if you want true two-way syncing you’ll need Safari, or install and use the Chrome for iOS app to sync between that and Chrome on your Mac.

What's new in v1.6?

- Hide devices that haven't had any sync activity in the last week

Verdict:

Does what it says on the tin, but you can't sync back from changes made in your default browser to iCloud.

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
