Network Counter. The easiest way to monitoring of wireless network traffic. Keep a track on your monthly network data usage. Now with Android 4.x support and widgets!


Features include:
- Android 2.2, 2.3 and 4.x support
- Data traffic usage statistics for Wi-Fi and mobile networks
- Alarm for Wi-Fi and mobile data traffic usage
- Network statistics for currently active (running) applications
- Ability to backup and restore of data traffic usage database
Additional Premium Content (in-app purchase):
- Disabled advertisements (Ads)
- Widgets (incl. lock screen) for monitoring of data usage

And much more is planned for future releases!

Data stats gathering is done via our background service which has been designed for a low power consumption and supports device reboots (not including hard resets or direct battery pulls) and network disconnects.

Note, A2SD (SD card support) functionality is not possible due to necessary background service. However, if it's your preference, there is no limitation to use A2SD+ (ext partition).

Requires:
- Mobile / Cell or Wi-Fi HW module in your phone / tablet
- Android's TrafficStats API supported via your phone's ROM

In case of any feature suggestion or a bug report, please, contact us on our e-mail (contact@mapeapps.com) or here on XDA.

Network Counter requires Android 2.2 and higher, but Android 4.x is highly recommended. All the screenshots are taken from Android 4.2 device.

Added support for Android 4.0, 4.1 and 4.2

Seems to be a great app but it does not show any applications using network on the Dell Streak 5.

Strange.

What Android version and ROM do you have? Do you get following message on Apps tab: 'No data available. There is currently either no running application using the network or your cell phone...'?

Everything else works (cell data and wi-fi data usage)?

Data usage works for Cell/Mobile - don't know for wifi as I have not tested. I'm on Android 2.2. - yes, the message is as you've written : 'No data available. There is currently either no running application using the network or your cell phone...'

Does the Alarm only affect Cell Data usage?? Guess since its called "cell data alarm" its cell only lol. Also its showing stuff like "Dialer" using bandwidth?? Is that normal??

Also this could really use some kind of widget displaying data usage

Nice job. I really like this app. It's almost exactly what I've been looking for. Too bad it's limited to displaying only the currently active apps. One question: what kind of order are the apps listed in? It would be great if we could resort the apps by data usage.

I also can't figure out what's going on with the dialer's data usage. I actually haven't received or made any calls in the past day and a half but the dailer's usage keeps going up.
