If you’re using an Android smartphone and have a data plan with a limited data, it’s difficult to keep track of what you’ve used. Here’s how to use the free Data Counter Widget to keep tack of the amount of data you’ve used.
Download the Data Counter Widget from the Android Market on your device.
It displays data use for your mobile broadband and WiFi connection.
Go into Widget Settings and tweak what it displays. It shows detailed data use stats from a day, month or week. Play around with the settings to make it work how you like it.
My favorite setting is adjusting when the monthly monitoring starts. Not everybody has their billing date so this comes in handy.
