Many a cell phone user does not understand the myriad ways a provider can charge them for data usage, and at the heart of this problem are apps (push services for example) that are surreptitiously running up your data connections in the background. This is where an app like Spb Monitor (now available for Android), can greatly helpâ€¦ Read on for full press release infoâ€¦
March 3rd, 2011 - SPB Software a leading mobile software developer expands its presence on Android with the release of SPB Wireless Monitor - a complete Android solution for measuring data traffic via all types of connections and calculating network usage costs according to the current data plan.
One day you may realize that you do not control your spending on mobile Internet. It even can become dramatically expensive and subjected to the high costs of roaming. Astonished by the unforeseen expenses you try to find out what's going on. Your search comes to no avail since there is no easy way to track which particular applications your money is being spent on. You finally decide to stop using the Internet on your mobile device in order to prevent bankruptcy. There is a way out: by installing SPB Wireless Monitor to your mobile device, you will be able to calculate how much money you spend on the Internet and determine which applications are consuming the most of your money.
SPB Wireless Monitor prevents unwanted mobile service charges and gives subscribers control over their mobile data spending. SPB Wireless Monitor measures data traffic, calculates network charges according to the currently used tariff, sends warnings of costly data usage, and reports the specific data traffic each application generates. It supports various types of connection (CDMA, GPRS, 3G, and Wi-Fi) and provides users with the report on traffic per application allowing them to track the applications that are the most data consuming. The home screen widget provides fast access to the data traffic information.
"With the growing popularity of Android platform the number of apps available on the Android Market increases very fast (the total number of applications available for Google Android Market today, almost 130,000, is 6 times the number of applications available one year ago)*. The more applications are downloaded the harder it is to track the data traffic and to control expenses on mobile internet. It can lead to the reduction of usage of any applications that require internet connection and, as a result - the limitation of apps choice for end users and money losses for mobile operators. SPB has created the solution that provides daily, monthly, yearly or custom period cost reports according to the pre-defined tariff rates and helps to avoid the unrestrained money spending" says Sebastian-Justus Schmidt, SPB Software's CEO.
