DU Meter
Accurately track your network and internet traffic with this flexible monitor

DU Meter is a powerful and highly configurable network monitor that helps you keep a very close eye on how your network and internet traffic is being used.

The program is unusually smart. You don't have to monitor all network traffic, for instance, although that's one option: you can also have DU Meter track just your internet activities, or only your local LAN traffic.

Set that up and a small but informative chart will immediately begin displaying your current upload and download speed. This works for us, but if you disagree then there are plenty of tweaks to apply. You're able to choose from 3 graph types; you can display separate graphs for uploads and downloads; the graph can be embedded in your taskbar, or even collapsed to a tiny bar with upload and download figures only.

If you don't want to watch your bandwidth all the time, then you can just have DU Meter warn you when your total monthly traffic exceeds a particular figure. It's possible to perform some action as a result of these alerts, too, for example stopping all network traffic once a particular limit has been reached.

Or you can browse a lengthy list of detailed reports. These cover the traffic today; your total traffic this week, this month and more (with projected estimates of what's going to happen in future); hourly, daily, weekly or monthly reports, and more. You can also figure out traffic costs and configure custom reports of your own, and any of these can be exported to PDF, XLS, CSV, HTML and other formats in a few clicks.

Version 6.40 (Change Log):
   - Security update: OpenSSL libraries used by DU Meter for secure email communication have been updated to the latest version, due to security bugs discovered in previos versions.
   - Security update: DU Meter executables have been signed with IEEE Taggant security certificates to prevent rare antivirus false positive reports.
   - Rare memory leak problem has been fixed.
   - Automatic error reporting and recovery has been enhanced to report possible memory leaks and application hangs.
   - Installer has been improved to install and uninstall in silent mode correctly.
   - Several additional minor bugs and typos have been fixed.

Verdict:

DU Meter is an excellent network monitor, there's no doubt, but all the free competition does leave it looking a little expensive

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

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.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
