BWMeter
Monitor and control your network and internet traffic

BWMeter is an extremely versatile network tool that can work as a bandwidth meter, monitor, traffic controller and even a firewall.

You could use it just to monitor your network or internet traffic, for instance. Simple graphs reveal your current LAN and internet use, and the program also maintains daily, weekly, monthly and yearly statistics of your network use.

BWMeter can also help to control your traffic by setting speed limits for various connection types, or connections to particular internet sites.

A firewall blocks programs from using your internet connection until they've received your permission. By default this alerts you with a really annoying blaring siren sound, but this does at least mean you won't miss the message, and you can change the sound, or switch to silent mode if it's a hassle.

And a comprehensive settings dialog means you can customise just about every other aspect of how BWMeter works, too.

So you can choose which network interfaces to monitor. User-definable filters allow you to define how you measure and visualise bandwidth use. You can set up alerts to perform particular actions when, say, your download bandwidth use reaches a particular figure. And there are options to customise the bandwidth graphs, choose how statistics are collected, decide how BWMeter's system tray icons will function, and a whole lot more.

Version 7.3.1 (version history):

Fix: crash when double-clicking an item in the firewall activity list

Verdict:

It's arguably a little expensive, but BWMeter's lengthy list of features and configuration options mean there's a lot on offer here, and if you'll use the bandwidth monitor, speed control and firewall then overall it's still a good deal

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.41

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.41

• Pin chats to the top of your chat list, so you can quickly find them. Just swipe right on a chat and tap the pin icon.
• You can now send documents of any type. To send a document, open a chat, tap attach — document. 
• When you receive multiple photos, you can now tap and hold on the group of photos to quickly forward or delete all of them.
