Download Ninja
A fast and configurable download manager

Download Ninja is a feature-packed, easy-to-use download manager.

Getting started is as simple as copying a link to the clipboard. The program displays a pop-up alert in the system tray, and if you want to download the file, just click this, select "Quick Add", and it'll be added to Download Ninja's queue.

The program can grab regular http links, as well as video and audio files from all the main media sharing sites. It uses up to 10 simultaneous connections to improve performance. If your downloads are interrupted then they can be resumed later, and there's an option to convert downloaded media files into another format (AVI, FLV, MOV, MP3, MP4, MPG, WMA, WMV).

There's a lot of fine control over how the program works. You're able to add individual files to different download queues, for example, and customise when they're allowed to run, as well as limiting their bandwidth. Individual downloads may be added to the front of the queue, if they're high priority, and the program supports http authentication and using MD5 checksums to confirm a download is valid.

If it's too much hassle to keep leaving your browser, no problem - Download Ninja has its own Chrome and Firefox extensions.

Most surprising of all, there's no adware here, no registration, no marketing annoyances, not as much as a "Donate" button or an ad on the developer's site. As the developer says, "Download Ninja is 100% free to use on as many computers as you like".

Build 30 changes:
    •Added Dutch translation
    •Added Chinese (simplified) translation
    •Bug fixes

Verdict:

It has a few interface quirks, but overall Download Ninja is a quick and easy way to handle all your download needs.

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."
