is a communication tool for exchanging instant messages, files and for sending voice data (audio chat). Security functions are put at users' disposal.
- Instant messaging: BitWise IM can send messages in a flash on a LAN or remotely. Receiving instant messages are done from a dedicated window making it simple to start and engage group discussion with several contacts.
- Audio chat: this option allows users to communicate through voice messages. They can fine-tune settings by adjusting bit rates (variable or average) as well as UDP packetization. Thanks to the Speex compression, the quality of the audio is clear.
- File transfer: with BitWise IM, it is possible to share files. To do this, it is necessary to go into the transfer manager and start a new task. This program can exchange files which are protected thanks to Blowfish encryption.
- Security: file, audio and messages exchanged can be protected by an encryption tool. All users will have to provide a valid email address for receiving a password and registration before starting all actions. The aim is to protect private information from being stolen.
- BitWise IM is a free program.
- It is possible to send messages even if the recipient is offline.
