By visualizing activity on your network, Glasswire Pro for PC makes it easy to spot suspicious activity, working in conjunction with your anti-virus software. Through TechnoBuffalo Deals, you can currently get the app for $29.
You view incoming and outgoing traffic via real-time graphs, and you can hover over any point in time to see which applications were in use. Glasswire will alert you if it spots a suspicious spike, and you have the option of storing up to one year of data. The app watches who is joining your Wi-Fi network, and also keeps an eye on your webcam and microphone. It runs in the background, requiring only limited processing power, and you can connect to any remote servers (up to ten) you own in order to monitor their network activity. Lockdown mode offers a temporary shutdown of your network while you are away, and Glasswire even provides a mini graph for easy monitoring from your desktop.
The current deal takes 70% off the price of a Pro license, and you can install the app on up to three computers.
Samsung is planning to bring almost all of its Android apps to iOS, according to a new report citing “trusted insiders.” Titles all Galaxy users are familiar with, including S Health and Gear Fit Manager are thought to be on the list, alongside companion apps for theGalaxy View.
Samsung has already confirmed plans to bring its Gear Manager app to iPhone, which will allow it to be paired with the South Korean company’s Gear S2 smartwatch. Now SamMobile reports that many more are on the way.
One of those is Gear Fit Manager, which would allow users to combine iPhone with a Gear Fit, Samsung’s fitness-focused activity tracker. To compliment both wearables, Samsung is also expected to bring S Health to iPhone, which will give users an alternative to Apple’s own Health platform and other third-party alternatives.
It is also expected to port the Galaxy View companion apps, Remote Control and Family Square, which allow users to control the supersized tablet remotely.
“There are plans to release the Level app for Samsung’s Level audio devices as well, which will enable iPhone users to use these devices and make use of various effects and an official way of control,” adds SamMobile.
“Samsung is also working on a newer version of the Smart Camera app for iOS, which might bring an overhauled UI (something that we think is utterly necessary) to the table.”
It’s unclear when these apps are expected to come to iOS, but it’s unlikely they will all arrive at the same time. Gear Fit Manager, which could help Samsung sell Gear Fit bands, will likely be the priority, followed by S Health and the rest of its lineup.
