Google launches Datally app to help Android users manage data consumption

"With my limited allowance, I am conscious about saving money including expenses on cellphone load".

Finally, Google also states that no advertisements should interfere with other apps or device functionality. "It's like a speedometer for your data", Google said.

MANILA. Brian Hendricks product manager of Datally says their main goal in making the application is to help smartphone users manage their mobile data

In some other Google-related news, the social media giant on 30 November, launched an app which could help you conserve your mobile data. The app will also block data usage of apps. What's more, blocking certain apps from accessing data in the background will also restrict them from interacting with you via updates and notifications.

And lastly, Datally also tells users if they are near public Wi-Fi so that they can save on data.

"Unless the exclusive goal of the app is that of a lockscreen, apps may not introduce ads or features that monetize the locked display of a device", the policy reads. Named Datally, the app is aimed at optimizing our data resources by providing a detailed viewpoint of how our data is getting utilized, which includes details as to which app is consuming how much data, when is it being consumed the most and so on. Mobile data is of paramount importance to many of us, thanks to the ever growing presence of 4G-enabled smartphones these days.

Ehimuan-Chiazor said that apps frequently use data in the background to update content and information and one may not know it happens. For the latter scenario, the app provides for a single button hitting which will let you channelize your data on only the active app.

Finding quality public Wi-Fi can be a challenge.

Another useful feature of the application is its ability to track down available Wi-Fi networks located nearby. You can even get directions on how to get there. For example, the best app and game seem to be opinion-based rather than download-based, but I presume the reams of movies and TV shows are judged on the cold numbers (those are region dependent, while the best app and game are fixed).
