Keep track of your data usage with the Data Counter Widget and never go over your monthly data limit again.

  • Version: 1.3.2
  • Size:  91.04KB
  • Category: Tools
  • Price: Free



Place the widget on your home screen (discreet 2×1 and 1×1 sizes) and have your data download/upload totals for WiFi, 3G, and even Bluetooth tracked without any fuss on your part.

Tapping on the widget brings up usage statistics.

In the settings you can pick what usage data is displayed on the widget, including a custom monthly start date which allows you to track your data over your monthly billing period and reset the data displayed on a set date of your choosing each month. You can also set the widget update rate which ranges from 1 minute to 30 minutes.

Pros:

  • Very simple to use—put it on your homescreen and forget about it
  • Able to set custom monthly start date to track usage for your specific billing period
  • It’s Free!



Areas for improvement:

  • Set a data allowance and have a notification warn you as you near it.



Conclusion:

With the looming threat of the elimination of unlimited data plans, this widget becomes even more necessary. If you want to avoid going over your data limit or just want to know how much you actually use a month, this is a fantastic and useful tool.  Go ahead and stream your media without the guess work how much data you’re using.
