Used up all my data on the first day of use!
My first time using this app my experience was positive until I travelled overseas and used a different sim card. When I came back home the app could not track my previous sim card data and after various attempts to fix it I ended up deleting it. Now that I am in more need to track my data I downloaded the app again at the start of my monthly plan, after a few days I had to turn the vpn off as it would not play well with my wifi at home. But the final strike came today when to my surprise after about 10 days my 4 GB plan was used up. I checked my phone settings and found that this app has used 3.2GB of my plan!!! What?!? How did that happen! On the app it shows that the first day it was downloaded almost 3gb of data were used and I have no idea why!!!! I am out of data for the rest of the month but at least this app has given me my last headache, the problems are a mix of bad user experience with some worrying tech issues.
I am not normally a data user as I try to use WiFi wherever I am. With that said, it is nice to have data available when I need it. I have a 2GB plan for that very reason. With that said, my husband was using my phone to look at an app I have for voice recording and saw this app next to it and opened it. He asked me what I had been doing to already use half of my data usage in one day. I told him nothing than I normally do. After doing some research, I found out it is this app using the data. This is from the list coming directly from my phone. Not much of a data tracker if it is using most of it. Until I can get either a better tracker or this one quits eating data, it is not going to remain part of my phone for much longer. I have only been using for 7 days. Half of my data used up. No other app even comes close.
A pleasant surprise
I’ve been using My Data Manager for quite some time, mostly just to keep track of my data usage. I found it very useful for that, especially the alarms, because I’m on a prepaid plan. But I hadn’t enabled the VPN (for no reason that I can recall) but, after a conversation with a friend a couple of months ago, I decided to enable it (hey, it’s free). One thing I noticed right off the bat, most of those horrible inserted browser ads, that throw video at you and are so difficult to get rid of, pretty much disappeared. That in itself would be enough to recommend using the VPN, but I’ve recently noticed that (probably due to blocking those ads) I’m using data a lot more slowly than I used to. I buy 2 GB at a time for three months, which would typically last me two. But that was OK. However, now, there’s only about three weeks left in my current period, and I still have over 1.3 GB of available data. I consider that quite a bonus. There is a downside, it takes a little longer to make a https connection. But a small price to pay, I feel. Thank you, My Data Manager.
Unfortunately in family plan l did not know you shared data. First month l used 50% of what is to be divided by 4 people so half way in with 2 weeks left we were put on the much slower speed. You could not even connect to a website. I got slammed by everyone while explaining how would l know being my 1st month to share and never told. With Cricket (subsidiary of Att) alone l had 10 gigs of data. I think this is 10 for 4 people. With this program l set it for 2.5 gigs and can check daily use, avg daily use and how much l have left. Very cool ! BE WARE: UNLIMITED DATA IS A MARKETING UNDERHANDED TRICK. All it is is past your data amount they slow you to a crawl like the old dial up, even worse. We have Att.
So happy I found this app
I have a very limited data plan, but up until recently it was never a problem. Last month, about 1/4 of the way into my billing cycle I got a warning from my cell providers that I had used 75% of my allotment. And no one could tell me what the culprit was. I then found this app. The Only app I found that gives you detailed info about how much data each app is using. The 1000+ other apps out there are useless, without app data. This app is great. Seems very reliable and actually gives me useful info and I can set up alerts way before I run into another issue. My FAVORITE app at the moment. Who would have thought?
Love it but it needs work
I love this app It does everything it is supposed to do, and I have never found any other app that gives daily rations like this one does. There is just one thing I wish you could update with the app. Please add a daily rollover feature. There are some days where I stay home all day and don’t use any data. And there are others where I’m out all day and am relying on data. I would love if the data I don’t use for one day is rolled over to the next day. So that I can actually get a clear representation of how much data I can use everyday. This app would be 5 stars if that feature existed. Thanks, I hope you implement it later.
Dark mode removed!
This app I rated a 4 Star because of three things dinged here... First Ding... You had a choice to change the background of the app from white to black background. Unfortunately the new version has removed this valued option. I miss being able to have a black background. Second Ding... This is regarding email tech support issues. When you send an email or try to communicate with this app support, don’t expect a response back. Third Ding... The map doesn’t work properly anymore, like it did in the previous versions. I’ve sent several email messages from the app itself, and never heard back from anyone regarding these issues. It’s like a bot! You get nothing back. Yes... I’m still using this app, but I believe that these three issues need to be addressed! T.I.B.
Love hate relationship
I love this app and how it tracks your data usage. However, when I’m at home using my WiFi network, it seriously affects my ability to visit websites and it even affects my call quality and call reception. For example, I missed an important phone call on Friday, because my phone never rang. The same person called me back today and the call never rang again! A relative just called and her call never rang to my phone. However, if I turn off the VPN while I am at home and on WiFi, I don’t have issues with phone calls or websites failing to load. This issue needs to be addressed because missing calls and having websites that repeatedly fail to load is infuriating.
This app matched the functionality that I was looking for exactly. 100% happy about have this My Data Manager. Would recommend. My family uses a shared data so I put this on everyone’s phone to track when we are close to our monthly limit and who was using the most data. Uses a VPN, surprised me because I’m unfamiliar with them. Some apps don’t show on the list, the data is still listed. It’s grouped as unknown. I contacted the creator and received an answer back within a week about it being a continuous process. Super happy with this app.
I’m a retired IT consultant and there’s issues with this app
Why does my alarm go off at the end of my day when I have gone way way way over my daily limit. Every other data app shuts off data AND notifies you when the moment your daily limit is hit. This app is no help at all when it comes to notifications and helping you budget your data throughout the month. The only two features that are worthwhile is the group/family data info and the VPN bundled with the app. These are not the primary reason for using a data monitor app at all. Please update to fix the alarm so there’s no data surprises in the next app released. Thanks
Nice idea poor execution
I have an “unlimited” Wi-Fi plan with my mifi jet pack. But my iPad uses an extraordinary amount when I’m using simple apps and not streaming. I thought this app would show me where the data usage was coming from - unfortunately not. It does show an up to the minute amount being used under the history tab but the app usage tab doesn’t match. All of a sudden the history will show a Gb of use but when I go to the app usage tab the amounts don’t even come close to adding up to what the history tab is showing. And verifying with my jet pack the history tab usage is accurate. Without finding out what app is using that amount I still can’t tell where the big usage is coming from, and therefore this app is not helpful.
Does what it’s suppose to do
Does a great job of tracking your data, I have been using this app for 3 years now and never had a problem with it. It has a nice user interface that makes this application easy to use and easy to understand. I have a unlimited data plan with 20g at 4g LTE and anything after that slows my speed down. I have never gone over 20g but with this app I get to utilize each months data more precisely, maximizing my data plan, and having peace in mind exactly where I stand with my data usage.
Best app for tracking data use
For years i never had overage problems with cellular data. The past few months, i started going way over my plan, and i was getting charged $$ for the extra data. This app revealed that my new phone was downloading podcasts and updates while i was out of wifi range. I selectively turned off cell data for those apps, and now i use the data manager to track my data usage every day. Very clean interface and easy to use, and it's saving me a ton of money.
This is one of those applications that you want to check every day to see how much data you spent every day, how much data you're supposed to spend each day, how much data you have left and how far you are in your plan cycle, also what location you spent much of it. It just shows everything, any possible information about your data: where, when, how long and how much data you spend and also how much you have left. You've got everything in this application.
Too many “unidentified apps” to be helpful
This app works great when it knows the apps being used. But it turns out that all the apps putting me over my data limit fall into the “unidentified” category. I’m not using many apps, and I have triple checked that nothing is using data without my knowledge. I realize there are millions of apps so it would be very difficult to keep up with them all. But until this app can tell me which of my apps is pushing me over the data limit, it just causes more frustration. On the up side, it has revealed that some common apps, like iTunes Store and Pandora, use a lot of data even when I don’t have them open. I removed Pandora right away!
