The thing about jumping into app development early on is that one can lay claim to the best names for applications. Take the self-explanatory Data Usage app for example, with its clean and clear name.
If you are looking for an app to track data usage on your Windows 8 device, and find out when you are about to exceed your cellular data plan, then stop searching — this new tool provides you with data reports, statistics, custom billing period and graphs without leaving the Metro user interface.
Here is the detailed and through official description:
“Wondering just how much data you’re pulling down in a given month on your device? With the removal of the unlimited plan, it’s more important than ever before to check your data plan usage each month. Not keeping track of it could result in overage charges on your monthly bill.
Here’s the app so as to avoid unexpected costs beyond the monthly rate.
Data usage for all the networks you connect is kept separate, allowing you to monitor each and every network data flow. Set data limit and billing period, then let Data Usage worry about making sure you don’t pay for overages again.”
The app has recently received a number of important improvements and enhancements with the latest update including a live tile that shows the network you are connected to along with its data usage.
However, the design of the free application is plain and simple — serviceable, in other words. It is clear that the emphasis is very much on the usage and features. But on the flipside, it can be used on all versions of Windows 8, including Windows RT tablets.
