    I need an app that measures how much data i have already consumed (even an estimate will do). Call it a 'data tracker' app if you will.

    Optional but would be an awesome plus are:
    * Graph showing consumptions per day.
    * Live Tile showing the latest GB/MB/KB amount i've already consumed.
    * 'Reset Button' once i subscribed to another consumable promo.

    Best Regards

    What phone do you have and what carrier? Quite a few carriers have enabled a built in app called 'data sense' this year which does exactly that and has a graph

    I'm from the Philippines, Globe Telecom. Hmm, hopefully carrier won't matter?

    Per app basis would be awesome, but naaah.. I'm thinking line graph like: data in MB/KB for Y-axis; then day for X-axis. Example: Data consumed for Dec21, for Dec22, for Dec23 and so on..

    I am not sure if it is restricted in your country or by your carrier, but there is an inbuilt app called data sense which helps in data tracking app wise, the best part is it will also show you app wise data consumption over wifi and mobile data connection, but it doesn't have a graph like style

    Data Sense is the only app that can do this, so if Data Sense is not available on your phone (depends on carrier), you're out of luck. No app written by anyone other than Microsoft can monitor what apps use what data (or anything else for that matter), because for security reasons the apps are sandboxed - they cannot be aware of each other's existence at all. If an app cannot be aware of other apps, it cannot track their data use.

    Unfortunantely, i dn't have Data Sence in my app list. Hay, breaks my heart that there really isn't a way or work around. Though i can access my data consumption thru my carrier's *143# call, it's not reliable.

    O well, appreciate all the reply, nonetheless. :) thank you.
