PowerPoint for iPad 1.2
Microsoft PowerPoint finally hits the iPad

PowerPoint is one of three apps that make up Microsoft's Office suite for iOS users - Word and Excel are, unsurprisingly, the other two.

The apps have a familiar interface, with the same Ribbon interface and layout. But at the same time, they're not just a port of the regular desktop version. Menus have been optimised for touch; objects can be dragged, rotated or resized with a swipe, and the interface scales properly in both portrait and landscape mode.

There's solid integration with other iOS features. You can use voice dictation to create a document, perhaps, or AirPlay to project your finished presentation.

You get plenty of functionality, too. There are templates, tables,  footnotes, filters, charts, transitions and just about everything else you'll need. Everything is very configurable, formatting is preserved so documents look just as you'd expect, and you can save and share your documents via Dropbox, OneDrive, OneDrive for Business and SharePoint.

The core free apps allow you to open or create documents, run basic editing operations or save them.

To use more advanced features, though (Pivot tables in Excel, say) you'll need an Office 365 subscription. If you have one already, no problem; you're covered for all the apps installed on a single tablet in addition to your PC if you have an Office 365 Personal subscription ($6.99 a month) or on up to five different tablets alongside your five PCs or Macs if you have the Office 365 Home sub ($9.99).

What's new in Microsoft PowerPoint for iPad 1.2:

- Create and edit presentations for FREE: all you need to do is sign in with a free Microsoft account. 
- Dropbox support: open, edit, and save presentations from Dropbox. 
- Universal app: PowerPoint now also runs beautifully on your iPhone and iPod touch, and is designed especially for a smaller screen.  
- Chart elements: customize charts by adding or removing chart elements such as titles, legends, axis titles and more.
- Animations: add animations such as entrance, emphasis and exit effects. 
- Themes: create a presentation and choose from a gallery of beautifully designed themes. 
- Switch to widescreen: easily switch between normal and widescreen layouts. 
- Background formatting: change the color or add a picture to the background of your slides. 
- Zoom in: Pinch to zoom in and see more detail while presenting.

Verdict:

PowerPoint for iOS looks great, is powerful and easy to use. If you have an Office 365 subscription it's a no-brainer, but if not, there are better value alternatives out there.

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

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."
