I normally post blog posts about PKI and not phones. However, I recently received my HTC 8X, which I love. On my previous phones, I had always wanted to track data usage by application. While there may have been apps that already provide this functionality, I was unaware of them. However, my HTC 8X (Verizon), shipped with a app called Data Sense. As, seen in the screenshot below, Data Sense gives me a nice overview of my data usage:
And if I swipe over to Usage it gives me a break down of usage by app. Pretty Awesome !!!
Even more importantly, it breaks down usage by Cellular and Wi-Fi. You can also set usage limits.
News flash. Android 4.1.1 has this feature and has for some time; what's the big deal?
Thanks for taking the time to comment. To answer your question: I really love this feature, and it's on my new phone. So, it's a big deal to me. Others who are interested in Windows Phone 8, will probably be interested in this feature as well.
