Fing 2.2 on Windows
Fing doesn’t provide a user-friendly interface when used with your desktop or laptop.

Staying on top of what devices are currently connected to your network can be a real chore. Your router may have some basic options available through its web-based interface, but if you’re looking to take a more detailed audit of your network and what’s connected to it (overtly or otherwise), you’ll need Fing.

If you plump for the desktop version, don’t expect a flashy user interface – instead, everything is run from the command line or Terminal.

Windows users should opt to add Fing to the system path for the current user (or all users) during installation, making it easy to launch Fing from its Start menu shortcut or any command prompt by simply typing fing. After installation, Mac and Linux users should type sudo fing instead.

You’ll then be prompted with a number of options that ultimately are used to build up the parameters under which Fing is run. It’s all quite complicated, but administrators will appreciate the power and options available. Regular users will, however, be put off and would be better served using one of the mobile apps instead, which are far simpler to use.

Users can also sign up to a monthly Fing membership, with prices starting from €5.99 (around $8.30) per month - a 15-day trial is available. Features include cloud sync, remote discovery and service monitoring. A paid-for account also unlocks some features in the mobile version, specifically the ability to view logs.

Verdict:

The lack of any user-friendly interface will limit Fing’s appeal to administrators and power users only.

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
