Fing 3.0.1 on iPad
The mobile version of Fing makes scanning, identifying and securing your network easy.

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.

Fire up the app and it’ll immediately invite you to scan your network for connected devices. These appear in a convenient list, complete with IP address and identifying marks where possible – typically you’ll be able to identify the device by its manufacturer.

Once devices have been identified, tap one for more details – this opens a new screen from which you can apply labels and an icon for more easily identifying the device in future. You can also see what services the device is using – useful for performing security audits – as well as ping the device and even attempt to wake it using the Wake On LAN feature if the device supports it.

Fing works with multiple networks too, so once your home network has been audited, take it to your workplace and perform a separate audit there too – tap your network name at the top and you’ll see similar labelling options appear, along with the ability to pinpoint your network on a map.

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:

Fing on your mobile is a joy to use, and will help you audit your network and close security holes in no time.

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
