My Data Manager is an app that will help you manage and monitor your data consumption on your iOS device.
In an ideal world, users wouldn't have to worry about data caps, but more and more network providers are putting limits on data use. My Data Manager makes it simple and easy to track how much data you've been using, where you've been using it, and set up alerts.
When you first launch My Data Manager, you will want to fill in your data cap and when your billing cycle begins. You can also take time to set up alerts for when you pass a certain threshold of data consumption. My Data Manager gives users two alarms to warn users multiple times that their data cap is approaching.
My Data Manager's interface is well-designed with graphs, charts, and even a map showing you your data usage. I found the map of data usage to be very handy, as you can track down where you consume the most bandwidth and see if you can hop on a wi-fi network instead.
There is an option to track your usage in Detailed Mode, which gives you real-time data tracking and more information. However, this mode will drain your battery more. During testing, standard mode worked just fine, but My Data Manager seemed to be reporting lower usage than what our carrier was telling us we had used.
Overall, My Data Manager is a great, free network utility that helps to visualize, monitor, and control your data usage.
