Advanced App Watch Also Returns To DataMan Pro For iPad
The relaunch of DataMan Pro for iPhone and iPad earlier this month included two nice enhancements, greater efficiency and iPhone 5 support. However, both lacked advanced App Watch reporting. XVision promised the feature would eventually return as well, and it already has for iPhone owners. Now, iPad users can once again utilize the benefits of the full App Watch because DataMan Pro for iPad v6.1 is available in the App Store. In its initial form, App Watch listed all of the applications that accessed data during a given time period. A useful tool, but you still needed to guess what percentage of data a specific app was using. However, the advanced App Watch eliminates the need to do the math yourself by displaying data usage amounts per application. Accessing App Watch report is simple, just tap on the generic app icon at the top-right of the screen. So, now you can determine whether streaming radio is a problem, if you should start downloading apps and app updates before leaving home, how many photos and videos you can afford to upload on-the-go, and much more. Even better, the advanced App Watch contains the same cellular and Wi-Fi connection separation and multiple time period breakdowns as other reports. As a reminder, DataMan monitors the active connections while the app is running. Therefore, advanced App Watch details will not exist prior to when you updated to v6.1. In addition, Precise Tracking must be enabled for accurate hourly reports, push alerts, and the app icon badge. DataMan Pro for iPad is compatible with iOS 6.0 or later, and available in the App Store for $9.99. DataMan Pro for iPhone is also compatible with iOS 6.0 or later, and available in the App Store for $9.99.
