Keep your software up to date with AppFresh

If you have been using your Mac for any length of time you probably have a reasonable number of applications installed. OS X can automatically check for the availability of updates for the operating system as well as various Apple applications, and there are a number of programs that will check for updates when they are launched.

However, there are plenty of software titles which do not feature any sort of automatic update facility and this could mean that you are missing out on important feature and security updates.

Obviously, there is nothing to stop you from visiting the web sites of software manufacturers to check for new program versions and updates, but unless you work with a very limited number of applications this is likely to be an incredibly lengthy process.

AppFresh can do all of the hard work for you. The tool integrates with OS X's own update checker and it will check for updates for all of the program you have installed; these can then be installed at your leisure. The program can also update widgets, plugins and preference panes making it a truly essential tool.

Verdict:

Although still undergoing development, there's little to fault about AppFresh which helps to ensure that you always have the most secure and stable version of programs installed.

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."
