Know Your Stats With Balanced for Android

You may be aware about certain codes that you can dial in your device’s dial pads, which will provide you with information about your service usage (minutes used/left, account balance, amount of data used, etc). This is a free service by most cell phone providers, and saves you a lot of headaches and overage fees (if you are not in an unlimited talk/data plan). XDA member ftgg99 decided to create an app to have this information at your fingertips, all compiled into a single screen, so that you don’t have to input codes for everything you want to see. Balancer will run silently when the screen is off, so you will not have to worry about having the correct numbers or if the app has to be updated or not.

There are still a few bugs and kinks to work out, and the dev is working in extending the app’s functionality. So, please leave some feedback if you found this useful.

Fahrbot Mobile are happy to present the open beta of Balanced, an application that silently checks the status of your account using operator USSD commands. Keep track of account balance, free minutes, SMS and traffic through our minimalistic text widgets!

You can find more information in the application thread.
