Articles -The Wikipedia App for iPhone
Optimise Wikipedia for your mobile with Articles -The Wikipedia App for iPhone

While the online encyclopaedia Wikipedia can be accessed from your iPhone using Safari, the layout of the articles means that the site can be difficult to navigate and awkward to read. Even if you use the mobile version of the Wikipedia site, things can be less than ideal.

This is where Article - the Wikipedia App for iPhone can help. Wikipedia articles can be styled so thy are perfectly suited for viewing on an iPhone screen and the app includes a number of handy features that make this unique online reference tool even more useful.

Chapter index control makes it possible to skim through lengthy article quickly while a map feature is available to find articles that are relevant to different places around the world. Wiki searches can be performed from within the app and spelling suggestions are available to help you to home in on what you are looking for.

Text can be resized in the same way as image using a two finger gesture and you have the option of sharing article with others as well as saving images to your camera roll. Recently viewed articles are cached so they can be read in offline mode and frequently used articles can be bookmarked for easy access. Article transforms Wikipedia into the site it should be for iPhone users.
 

Verdict:

Wikipedia the way it should be for iPhone users. If you use the online encyclopaedia, installing Articles is almost essential

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
