Dataman:

Free Download — App is only available on iPhone and Apple Watch

If you are always running out of mobile data and can’t keep track of it. DataMan can help, with a useful app and additional widget you stay in control of your data as you can track your data usage directly. The app also gives you coloured warnings if you are using too much data.

  • Green — Safe
  • Orange — Caution — You are using up your data extremely quickly.
  • Red — Danger — You are extremely low on data.

The app costs $0.99 which is a small amount for an extremely handy app. The app also shows a percentage of your data used which allows you to see how much you’ve got left giving you chance to plan accordingly on how you’re going to use that data. Dataman is definitely worth it, especially if you are on a limited data plan.
