CTIA Rates Data Usage of Popular Apps

Article Comments  4  

Dec 26, 2013, 4:25 PM   by Rich Brome   @rbrome

The CTIA today launched KnowMyApp.org, a site detailing the average data usage of popular phone apps. The service currently includes the top 50 apps for both iOS and Android. For each, it describes a tested scenario (designed to be typical) and shows how much data it used. It also shows what percentage of common data plans (1, 2, or 4 GB) the app could be expected to consume. The service is useful not only for avoiding data caps, but for maximizing battery life, making the service useful even for those on unlimited data plans.

WHAT??

just go to setting then Data usage.
it shows you how much data each apps used!
Yeah, AFTER you have already installed and used the app.....that doesn't help if you are trying to decide whether or not to install an app in the first place.
I don't give a crap, I have unlimited data, T-Mobile's network is great!

This is great !

I've always wondered what the average use of apps like Tapped out, and the Ookla speed test use. I'm gonna check this out as soon as I get home from work.
