Data Buddy App Reviews

Perfect !

Exactly what I was expecting... Simple and 100% usefull

Excellent design

I like this app because you fit all the data stats on one page, and the line graph helps a lot. The reason your missing a star is because you need to integrate push notifications and make ALL your images hd for retina devices. Fix that and Ill give you that final star. Thanks for the great app

Great, but a few suggestions

My plan renews on the 29th of every month. The app assumes my renewal is exactly one month all the time. I would like there to be a way for me to customize that. I find the classic view more attractive Somehow the other view is too crowded. I would like the essential information visible quickly without over crowding: how much data I have used, how much I have left, and notifications every-time I reach a certain amount. I dont understand the 369 (cycle day) day number. I think a loading bar like in classic view is more attractive. Also, why doesnt this multi-task, it has to reload every time I open it!

Attractive and easy to use

This is a very nice app that is attractive and easy to use. I like that it doesnt need to be running in the background -- it simply updates the usage level every time you launch it. A tip for new users -- you can enter any data limit you want by tapping the "set data limit" field instead of being limited to the numbers on the dial. I have only given the app four stars for now, as I dont yet know how accurate it is. I will update my review after this billing cycle completes. Update: My Data Use recorded 196 MB in my first billing cycle, while my service provider recorded 209 MB. Thats close enough for me, but to be fair to My Data Use, I installed the app a couple of days after my billing cycle began, so it may have missed a few MB at the beginning. I will update again at the end of my next billing cycle. In the meantime, Ive bumped my rating to five stars.

Nice but...

Fairly accurate. Has a indicator icon that there is a message but no way to get rid of it. Still needs some work.

My Data

Unfortunately I cannot get this app to work on my iPhone4. I have installed and reinstalled it three times, but it does not work. The usage inputs do not update and the manual hangs up. I tried twice to get help from the contact function on the support web site, but I have not received a reply. Very disappointing.

Doesnt update

Love the look. But it wil not update, and if it does it does randomly. The report a problem option doesnt work so I cant contact anyone to try and resolve the problem.

Buggy , dissappointing

So close to being great but last release is very buggy. The app does not always reset or it does so randomly , setting the baseline deeply negative .


Works great. Easy to use.


Its a good app unsure of its accuracy yet


Works like a charm. Would like native iPad configuration.


Simple and easy to use. Nice interface.


So-so, not that intuitive. Free version of 3D watchdog is more feature-rich, can even export data to csv file. No way to reset data from within this program, either.

Works good

Keep tabs on my usage - no complaints

It really does what it says

Broken App

Doesnt track data usage correctly at all. iPhone 4 on Telus. On day 14 of cycle, records 60 mb used for 3G, while the settings app (which Ive reset appropriately) shows usage at 218 mb. My provider also texts me when my data plan is at 75 and 95%, which also showed a 150-300 mb discrepancy with My Data Uses readings. Want my dollar back.

Not in realtime

Good application, not in realtime, I have to reload the application each time to be updated. Andre

Excellent job works as advertised

This app works as stated, and is easy to use.

Not accurate at all

I am much like Goonpin - there is always a discrepancy between what my online Telus profile says Ive used and what this app tells me Ive used (this app always lowballs it by around 100-200 mb). Maybe its a problem with Telus, but either way, this app is not tracking exactly what my provider is tracking, rendering it useless for me. Telus customers, beware!

Does what I need it to do

Its not fancy but it does what I need it to do.
