Network Usage App – Keep an eye on your 3G/LTE Data


Here is a really nice Tool to help keep an eye on your 3G/LTE Data consumption. The App presents your data consumption in a graph per month showing your download and upload totals. This way you can make sure you don’t overuse you data quota from your ISP. You can also see the details of your connection in the app, like whether it’s a roaming connection and its encryption type. Here is the full description from the Store:

Network Usage displays the amount of data sent and received by your network interfaces. Usage data is displayed in an easy-to-read bar graph. Drill down into the data by clicking or tapping the graph’s bars.

Supports multiple network interfaces
Bar graph with drill-down capability


Above is my own mobile data usage for the past 3 months, now you can see why I have been spotty online, you can see I have been on the road since October, and explains my large mobile data usage.

As you can see, the App is Ad supported to make it free. So it is a good tool and its free too. You can download via the Source below.

PC Monitor App hits the Store


Ladies and gentlemen we have the first true comprehensive tool in the Windows 8 Store. PC Monitor from MMSoft is indeed a Network Admin dream come true on a Mobile device. With the app you can monitor your whole network and see the status of all your servers and clients. You can see the configuration of the node and run commands on it. I haven’t used the app yet, so I don’t know if you have to install a client app on the nodes or not. You will need to register and install a client app to use the this App. But the app is looking to be a good management app for Professionals and Enthusiasts alike.
