So many people ask us, “Why am I using so much data on my phone?”
The built in data usage tools just don’t give me enough detailed information.  I looked for an app and found My Data Manager.
I wanted to know exactly how much data was used by watching a 45 minute YouTube video. I turned on my data manager,  watched the video,  and got my answer:
I really liked the real-time data this app provides, but you may like the historical data, or the fact that you can set up alerts for when you are about to hit the limits of your data plan. There’s even a new feature that will track usage of everyone on a shared plan. In any case, it’s a handy little app to answer that question, Why am I using so much data?

  1. I have an IPhone 6s and got My Data Manager. When I go to the summary page I do not have the choice of Apps to tap like you showed on yours. I have History, Map, Timer, Data Compression, but not Apps. I went into the settings on my phone and could not find anything. Is there a setting that I have missed? I really would like to find out which apps used the most data.

  2. I’m a new member and have already found your newsletter helpful. My Data Manager is just what I’ve been looking for. Thank you! By the way, I live in Michigan and spend a few weeks in Zephyrhills, FL in the winter. Unfortunately I was in Michigan when you visited our Betmar Computer Club. Maybe I’ll be there the next time you visit.
