ChargeMeter is a new idea-utility and it is very useful to anybody. Protect your computer & your phone bill from uncontrolled internet connections!The most serious and useful feature of the new ChargeMeter is that protects you from uncontrolled calls, some companies do, in order to give you some “free” hot services.
Some of them use your telephone line and they can charge to you a big amount of money.Anytime you want, you can check how much money you spent when you’re on internet, via your telephone line. It is very easy! The only thing you have to do is to select your country and telephone company from ChargeMeter huge list. If your country doesn’t appear in the list you can set your own phone rates after you ask the telephone company you already use. Also, ChargeMeter keeps history, so you can see anytime when and how much money you spent when you used your Internet connection. A very useful function is the annual bar graph. You can analytically see and print how much money or time you spent every day and month. Finally, you can disconnect from Internet or hear an audio file after a predetermined period of time.
NOTICE that new ChargeMeter doesn’t use occasionally your Internet connection and doesn’t show ads!
