Wifi Collector 1.00
Detect local wifi networks with your Android device

Wifi Collector is an Android app which detects collects data on wireless networks as you walk or drive around.

Notably, Wifi Collector is the first Android app from Windows utility specialist NirSoft.

The app has a very basic interface, but is functional enough, recording plenty of information about any local networks: their name (SSID), MAC address of the access point, manufacturer of the access point, signal level, channel frequency, channel number, security (WEP/WPA/WPA2), WPS support (Yes/No), date and time that the network was detected, and the network's location (longitude and latitude).

As with NirSoft's PC tools, you can export this data in various text formats (CSV, HTML, tab-delimited).

Wifi Collector does go a little further, however, with the ability to save the network locations as a .KML file, meaning you can view them all on Google Earth: very convenient.

Verdict:

Wifi Collector doesn't collect or display as much network information as NirSoft's Windows equivalents. It does enough to be useful, though, and of course is easier to carry around when you're doing a local site survey.

Does the app also represent a new direction for NirSoft? We'll be interested to see what happens next.

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
