Verity Child Monitoring 1.14
Find out what your kids are doing on their PC

Verity Child Monitoring is a parental controls package which will help you find out more about (and take charge of) what your kids are doing on their computer.

Getting started with the program can be a little complicated. On our test PC, for instance, we were asked to set up port forwarding on our router before we could configure the tool. Help was on offer, but this could still be a stumbling block if you're a PC novice.

Get past that hurdle, though, and you'll find the program has a lot to offer. Like restricting the programs they can run, and the websites they're able to visit, for instance. As an example, Verity Child Monitoring automatically blocks access to Task Manager to make it more difficult to close the program down.

The program can also log just about everything that's happening on the system: the programs used (and for how long), the websites visited, and the text of online chats. Keystrokes and mouse clicks are monitored, and Verity even captures the screen at regular intervals so you can review what's happened later.

And if you'd rather your children weren't spending so much time on the PC then you can also limit their computer usage (which, of course, also means you'll have less logs to review later).

Please note, the program will by default install the Ask browser toolbar. If you don't want this, look out for the "Related Programs and Extras" screen at the end of the setup process and clear the "Ask Internet Browser Toolbar" box before you click "Finish".

Verdict:

Verity Child Monitoring can be tricky to set up, but once it's working you'll find the program offers plenty of monitoring options, certainly more than you'd expect for a free tool.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
