One of my most useful Apps
Providing a breakdown of total plan usage between our four devices gives a quick way to locate where a high use probably occurred.
An added capability would be a graph showing each day’s total over the period of the plan.
Also if the total usage of the last period was still available after the transition to the next plan period could be posted that would be useful as I often forget to check the usage near the end of the last day of my plan period. And even my provider doesn’t show that data for the previous period without more than a few “clicks” on its website. More than just one would also work for some.
Does not function in the background
I thought this app was pretty good until I realized that you have to keep the app open in the background for it to work and keep track of your data. But for those of us who like to close our apps occasionally, it’s a pain to have to try to keep track of which apps you close in hopes of not accidentally closing this up in the background because once you do, it stops keeping track of your data. There is a toggle in the settings app to turn on background data for this, but that doesn’t Change whether or not this app actually functions in the background it just allows it to use data in the background. The app itself needs to have a function to where you can make it run without even being open or elect not to if you choose not to. I know this is possible because I have other apps that can do the same thing for other purposes. They allow a toggle button to allow it to run in the background continually if you so choose. This issue needs to be addressed or else the app is pointless.
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.
