NetSpeedMonitor 2.5.4 [64-bit]
Monitor your web usage and download speed with NetSpeedMonitor

Whatever the advertised speed of your internet connection, it is common to question what sort of transfer rate you are actually achieving. NetSpeedMonitor is a simple little tool that displays your current upload and download speed in the system tray so you can keep a constant eye on your connection.

Speed can be displayed in kbits/sec or mbits/sec and if you have more than one network adaptor installed - such as a wired and wireless connection - you can choose which one should be monitored. But one of the most useful features of the program is its ability to record data about monthly web usage.

Many ISP impose monthly bandwidth restrictions on users and exceeding these limits can result in a hefty bill. With NetSpeedMonitor installed you can ensure that you never download more than you should. The recorded data can be saved in an SQLite Database and you can then analyse your daily, monthly and annual usage.

If you'd like to know a little more about how your connection is being used, the program will provide information about the TCP and UDP endpoints on your system. This may not be of interest to everyone, but the speed and usage monitoring offered by this free program make it a worthy tool.
 

Verdict:

Making it possible to monitor not only the speed of your internet connection, but also how much of your monthly allowance you have used, NetSpeedMonitor is an essential installation.

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.
