Keep All Your Data and Network Statistics under Control with DroidStats
We like to keep track of all that is going on with our data connections and the Android OS lets us have full control over our system. One very useful app in that direction is DroidStats that works by providing many statistics and complete cost control. It logs not only to the data transfer via WLAN and UMTS connection, but also retains the call minutes and the number of sent text messages. It is also capable of monitoring incoming calls and number of received SMS SMS.
For DroidStats to start recording data the user must first make some settings. The first thing you should configure is the number of free call minutes and SMS you have available per month. You need to also set the price of a minute of call or the cost per text message, according to the mobile operator billing policy. Exceptions such as free numbers or the weekend special rates can also be included in the settings of DroidStats. Next you need to set up how often the data is refreshed – 15, 30 or 60 minutes. Keep in mind that the higher the refresh rate, the less battery drain.
In addition to the overview of the app interface itself, Droid Stats also informs the user with one of the three different-sized home screen widgets. With a tap, you are immediately taken to the detailed view. There DroidStats shows not only the remaining call minutes, short messages and the remaining amount of data but also predicts consumption until the end of the month. In addition, the app displays all the statistics for monthly or total consumption. Preferred information, such as Outgoing charged minutes you can mark to favorites and then dive on first thing in the respective index. Moreover DroidStats warns the user by notification when a set threshold is reached. If you find the data is not properly collected, you are allowed to rectify it manually or reset the data counter. DroidStats is highly recommended for anyone wanting to keep their monthly costs under control and does not want to be surprised by exorbitant bills.
