Above and Beyond the App Store? Bandwidth App in the App Store

Jan 9, 2011 by

Practically everyone who knows anything knows that the App Store is extremely limiting when it comes to everything. Apps do not have root access; not even close. But this one app, Bandwidth Pro, goes beyond that.This app has the ability to tell how much bandwidth your devices uses; from 3G to Wi-Fi and GPRS.

Contrary to what most people think, you do not have to run this app in the background for it to work. It is not a background process.

It lets you see how much of each type of data you use, in real time. You even get to choose how often it refreshes. You can set monthly limits and it will alert you if you get close.

I’m not exactly sure how this app operates, whether through APIs or some other method, I’m not sure.

But I’ve been using it for a day, and (I’m a heavy user) it seems 100% legit.

I even had a dream where I had an iPhone but I didn’t even know what my data limit was; all because of this app.

It’s available on the App Store for $0.99 and I recommend you pick it up.
