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?

  • Bill,

    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.
