Iptraf Network Statistics Now Available for Android

In case you aren’t familiar, Iptraf is a popular open source program for monitoring network traffic and statistics in real time. Thanks to it’s open source nature, Iptraf has now been ported to Android by XDA Recognized Developer viulian, who developed an APK installer to use this tool on your Android device.

To actually install Iptraf, you need a rooted phone with BusyBox installed. This is important due to the way the application was compiled. You’ll also need a small amount of free space on your system partition. After that, you can either use an SSH server or terminal emulator to access the information. One small issue noted by the developer is that using SSH will lead to the SSH traffic being displayed, which you may not want to see. He goes on to explain how to filter this out if you’d like. You will also need to mount /system as RW to allow the app to function as it should.

This should work on Android 1.6 and above, so if you’d like to try this out, head on over to the original forum thread for more info.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
