Keep Up With Your Data Usage – Network Counter For Android
It looks like the IT professionals in our community have been getting gifts all week, courtesy of our devs. There have been a few network tools released lately that are good tools if your job involves having to ensure the proper functionality of a network. In the case of this new app created by XDA member mapeapps, not only will IT people benefit from this but regular users as well because the app will allow you to keep tabs data usage for Android devices whether it is via Wifi or via cellular data. The app offers a wide range of functionality including data monitoring, alarms, network statistics for running apps, and more. Several of these features are of great interest, particularly to people who are concerned about apps accessing the web by themselves or by the causal user who tethers data from their phone while on a limited data plan.
