launch2net 1.2 adds stats
nova media today unveiled launch2net 1.2 with improved statistic features. launch2net turns a mobile device into a wireless internet connection tool for a Mac OS X computer and supports most mobile devices and mobile network operators worldwide. Version 1.2 allows users to track the data volume transferred or the time spent online to keep control of the online costs by monitoring the current connection details as well as the time and data usage of a whole period. The length of a period can be defined individually. "The launch2net statistics window flips like a dashboard. First you see the connection´s time, upload and download speed," according to the company. launch2net requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later and runs on both PowerPC- or Intel-based Macs. It costs €75 (and is a free upgrade).
