What’s in this version: 0.30.1
- Ice Cream Sandwich compatibility (beta, feedback welcome).
- New option “Count WiMAX usage as mobile” in Settings > Advanced. Previously WiMAX was ALWAYS counted as mobile.
- Bug Fixes.
3G Watchdog has just been updated to sort some bugs in ICS, apart from that it is a good solid utility app. Simply speaking, what it does is to monitor data traffic sent over the mobile network on your Android phone. The idea is that it’ll stop you from going over your agreed limit and incurring all sorts of nasty overblown charges from your network.?The icon sits at the top of your phone at all times, with a mini progress bar indicating how much data you’ve got left using both the size of the bar and its colour as a warning. Green is good, yellow not so good and red means time to stop streaming.
When you open the app itself it gets much more exciting – well, if you can call monitoring your data allowance exciting. You tell the app how big your data allowance is and then set it to warn you by vibration when you’re a certain percentage through your lot. You can also get it to stop your phone from using 3G or EDGE or?GPRS?as well once you get to the end. That way, you ensure you’ll never pay a penny over your tariff.
- Should NOT be installed on SD card (run as service)
- DO NOT USE version 0.30.0, please UPGRADE to 0.30.1 or greater!
