Tips to monitor and control data usage

Google finally bans apps that include shady lock screen ads from the Play Store

"Mobile data is expensive for many people around the world".

So as consumers, we often look for ways to save those extra few megabytes of our mobile data by either reducing our usage or simply switching it off altogether. The app is available for everyone in the Play Store.

Not only are smartphone users constantly thinking about data balances, but they do not understand where their data is going, nor do they feel in control over allocating data to the apps they really care about. After you open the app, the top half shows you the data usage of the day.

Further, the app will also provide the means to control your data usage in precisely the manner you would like it to be.

The country manager said finding quality public Wi-Fi could be challenging, adding that within the range of a public network, Datally's Wi-Fi finder would notify one and help you connect.

Datally is only a data management app, unlike the now discontinued Opera Max app, which saved data consumption by compressing apps and webpages. For example, the best app and game seem to be opinion-based rather than download-based, but I presume the reams of movies and TV shows are judged on the cold numbers (those are region dependent, while the best app and game are fixed). Since I was connected to my office Wi-Fi, I ended up saving around 21% mobile data. "The visibility gives users more confidence to use those apps". The Manage data option helps you to view the amount of data consumed in a graphical format.

App developers are pushing the envelope on a daily basis trying to improve and enhance our smartphone and tablet experiences.

Do keep in mind that connecting to unknown public Wi-Fi hotspots also involves a risk of your data and sensitive information ending up in the hands of cyber criminals.

Google also disclosed that they will be adding more features such as balance checking, balance expiration reminders in addition data usage warnings and controls in the next iteration of the app.
