"Watch out! The dog is monitoring your data usage"

Reviewed by / Jun 08, 2011

3G Watchdog is a data usage counter for your 3G/Edge/GPRS connection

This is the paid version of 3G Watchdog. It contains some extra features as: Advanced data usage prediction, graphs for usage history and CSV export, 5 widget styles, backup/restore... among many other.

We all have some limits in our data plan, either by fares or speed limit. This way you control the amount of data usage every time you check it to adjust it to your allowed monthly consumption.

First time you install it, you have to set your data plan details. This means: the allowed amount of data allowed (in bytes, KB, MB or GB), and the period (per day, week or month). What's more, you can set from there the warnings: notifications when we overtake a determined % of data usage, auto-disabling 3G when you reach that amount of data usage via APNdroid or JuiceDefender and auto-enabling when it comes back down that limit. Likewise you can choose the updating frequency for notifications and if you want the notification icon always visible, always hidden or just visible when 3G is enabled. Finally, you can set what to show on the counter table.

In that counter table will be displayed the total allowed data usage, today's, week's and month's usage as well as amount received and sent. There's a daily and a global consumption history. There's on the top a data usage bar that will help you out to see at a glance how's your consumption going.

3G Watchdog has been developed by an individual developer called Richard Gruet. He has no more apps on market, but he has achieved that 3G Watchdog becomes in a must have for many users.

Actually, we also regard 3G Watchdog a must have. Of course you can live without it, but if you want to have a comprehensive control over your data usage (and that matters since it could increase your phone invoice or decrease your connection speed), this is one of the best monitoring tool you can get.

KNOWN PROBLEMS:

*** ANDROID 4.3 users: Usage by application breakdown NOT WORKING (Android bug) with 3GW < 1.22.2, PLEASE UPGRADE to version 1.22.2 (or more recent) which fixes the problem ***

* Doesn't count properly global usage on Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 8.9 - this problem affects other data counting applications as well and is caused by a bug on the tablet itself. You may try to check the "Calculate global usage from usage by app" advanced option as a possible workaround (feedback welcome).

* Doesn't count properly global mobile usage on Samsung Galaxy R / Z (i9103) and possibly Galaxy Y. Problems were also reported with the Captivate Glide. Same workaround as for the Galaxy Tab (see above).

* Early versions of 3GW Pro reported as not working on ZTE Blade/Orange San Francisco (black screen).

OTHER PROBLEMS:

If you run into problems and wish to help to solve the problem while giving the community a chance to get a better 3GW Pro, please send a mail to contact-pro@3gwatchdog.fr with details.

3GW Pro can't possibly work perfectly on all possible phone models (more than 2000 target devices) with all Android stock or custom versions + all manufacturers' custom layers (such as HTC Sense) + all carriers' custom layers + all combinations of installed applications, so please be understanding and collaborative rather than just angry if everything is not immediately perfect. Thank you.

Recently changed in this version

* New option to count all Wifi usage as mobile. Useful for people taking all their data from a HotSpot (3G key...).

* "Count in blocks" billing rule: new 'Minimum usage counted per connection" option.

* alerts: slightly reorganized; notifications show local or roaming usage depending on whichever is active.

* Zip backup files to save space. Old uncompressed backup files can still be restored.

* Stability fixes.

    the idea is good, working good, GUI is good..but the fact is that there are so many apps which are giving all these functionalities for free in Play store..developers should add something prior and different for a paid app, anyways 5 stars..

    I need an app that counts WiFi into my plan since I have a hotspot. So 3d watchdog doesn't work in my situation. It counts WiFi but doesn't include it into my plan usage percent.

    《v1.20》 Excellent app. Even if you don't need this for connection management, you can still use this to monitor bandwidth history. Daily, weekly, and monthly histories are written. 《v1.24.3》 No problems.
