My Data Manager Watches Your Data Usage With Crazy Awesome Feature Set [Daily Freebie]

There are lots of apps out there that let you manage your data usage, but My Data Manager amazes. It works on both the iPhone and iPad, and has a feature set that’d make it a great deal even at $5 — let alone at the $0 it actually costs.

Really, there are almost too many different ways to view data usage. There’s a data summary screen that displays today’s usage, total usage, the amount of data remaining in your daily budget (auto-calculated based on your plan) and a neat forecast of how much data you’ll use based on current expenditure.

But that’s just the first screen — there are five more. One that breaks usage down by app, one page that displays a graph of your daily usage, another that shows locations where data was used on Google Maps, and another that graphs usage and displays the results with bubbles (that’s it above on the right), with bigger bubbles representing more usage.

Not enough? There’s even a screen with a timer so you can set your own custom interval. Of course, you can also set alarms to warn you when you’re about to go over, and change most of the screens to view daily, weekly or monthly usage. Give it a look; we think it’s an essential.

    I downloaded the app, from the US app store. Said no to location when I first opened the app. So I am somewhat surprised that it knew which european country I am presently visiting. How can it be that it knew where I am if I was not sending location data back???

    Possibly from your IP address

    I downloaded the app, say yes to location, close the app, it keeps hogging the location service, then quit the app, still… Quit all apps then do PRAM reset, still… Somewhat this app refused to release my location service! Great way to drain out your battery! And kudos on auto running even after PRAM reset!
