Since we launched Datally last year, people around the world have used the Android app to better understand, control, and save their mobile data. The average user has saved 21% of their mobile data — that’s like using data from Monday to Thursday, and having Friday covered by Datally.
Here are four ways Datally can help you save your mobile data even more:
Guest Mode — Stay in Control when Lending Your Phone
Ever have a family member or friend borrow your phone, and then see that they’ve used up a lot more data than you expected? We love our family, but data hogging is not cool. A new feature, Guest Mode, lets you set the amount of data you’re okay to let another person use, before you hand over your phone.
Daily Limit — Decide How Much Data to Use Everyday
It’s too easy to accidentally burn through your entire data pack. Daily Limit helps you control your own data use and therefore save your mobile data. You can set the maximum amount of data you want to spend per day, and get warnings when you’re about to bust through your limit. You can choose to block data for the rest of the day or keep going.
Unused Apps — Stop Your Phone from Leaking Data
Did you know that for many people, 20% of mobile data is used in the background by apps they haven’t opened in over a month? Unused Apps shows you the apps that you’re not using, but that are taking up your precious data. With one tap, you can uninstall an unused app and keep your phone from leaking data.
Wi-Fi Map — An Even Easier Way to Find Wi-Fi
The Wi-Fi Map shows you all of the nearby Wi-Fi networks, so you can find the best quality network nearby. More Wi-Fi should help you continue surfing the net without worrying about how much it’s eating into your data plan. You can even rate that network after you connect.
