Mega tight with your megabytes? FREE | DATALLY.GOOGLE.COM
The subtitle given to Datally — a “mobile datasaving & Wi-Fi app by Google” — is about as close as you’ll get to a spoiler in the world of utility apps. By tracking the daily data usage of each of your apps, Datally gives you a simple and informative breakdown of your mobile data usage throughout the day, week or month. It’s an intuitive way to discover that, for instance, your highest data usage on a weekday is around lunchtime, and Spotify seems to be the main culprit. To rectify this, you can turn on Data Saver, which blocks any app from using mobile data in the background when not on Wi-Fi. Naturally, you can manage which apps are affected by this with toggle switches, and when actively using one of these blocked apps away from Wi-Fi, a small bubble will pop up showing how much mobile data it has used in your current session. There’s a neat extra feature that lists any nearby public Wi-Fi points as well, with a shortcut that opens up Google Maps directions for each.
