3G Watchdog - Data Usage



    3G Watchdog - Data Usage's review

    Published: 2011-06-08, by .

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

    • Highly configurable
    • Daily and global consumption history
    • Status bar icon
    • Data usage table (daily, weekly, monthly)
    • We didn't find any... Did you?

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

    We all have some limits in our data plan, in the form of tariffs or speed. With this app you can control the amount of data usage every time you check it and adjust it stay within your monthly consumption limit.

    The first time you install the app, you have to indicate your data plan details. This means the amount of data allowed (in bytes, KB, MB or GB) and the period (per day, week or month). You can also configure warnings here: notifications when we go over 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 to be always visible, always hidden or just visible when 3G is enabled. Finally, you can choose what to show on the counter table.

    The counter table will show the total allowed data usage, your daily, weekly and monthly usage, as well as the amount received and sent. There's also a daily and a global consumption history and at the top there’s a data usage bar that lets you see at a glance how your consumption is going. It also includes two widgets (small and large).

    3G Watchdog was created by an individual developer called Richard Gruet. He has no other apps on market, but his 3G Watchdog has become a must-have for many users.

    We also regard 3G Watchdog as must-have. Of course, you can live without it, but if you want to have comprehensive control over your data usage (and this is important if you want to avoid increasing bills or decrease your connection speed), this is one of the best monitoring tools you can get.

    You must uninstall if you got the Android 8.0 update. Crashes in the background every three seconds, and makes it impossible to use the phone, because, weirdest thing, the keyboard will disappear every three seconds, no matter what application you are using. Can't even send a text.

    Great app I used to love but after the update to Oreo it causes serious battery drain and other problems of stability. Unistalled for now.
