Smartphone users are using more and more data each month and it is now a well established trend. Cisco, the telecommunications giant, revealed in a recent study that there was an 81% increase in mobile data usage in 2012, compared to the year before.*
Did you know that Videotron developed a mobile app that will enable you to closely monitor mobile data usage on your Android smartphone?
Available on the Google Play Store, this user-friendly free app recognizes your device and your mobile monthly plan automatically.
This app offers a detailed overview of your daily data usage, for better control and management. You can also compare your current data usage to that of the past two months.
You can also see additional charges that may be applied if you exceed your monthly data allowance.
This app is supported on Android version 2.1 and up. It is possible to use it with your device connected through a WiFi network or while using the Videotron mobile network.
You can download the app here. Do not forget to recommend it to your employees that are using a company-provided Android smartphone, making it possible to control costs by ensuring that everyone has the right mobile plan, based on actual usage.
Those that are already using the app seem to like it, as it currently has a 4.4 out of 5 rating in the Google Play store, with positive comments about its design, ease of use, precision and overall performance.
