Datally is Google's newest Android app for metering your usage

Datally is Google's newest Android app for metering your usage

Essentially Google is saying an app can't masquerade as a game or a photo editor, only to then start pushing ads onto locked phones. Download the app on the Play Store.

The offering is the latest from Google's Next Billion Users division, an internal effort to make internet services more accessible to people in countries where technology infrastructure is not as fast or affordable as in the United States or Western Europe. But people will still complain about data usage.

Google has announced it is cracking down on apps that seek to push advertisements to Android users through the device's lockscreen. Keep in mind Google Datally is now available only for Android users.

"If a Tizi app is unable to take control of a device because the vulnerabilities it tries to use are are all patched, it will still attempt to perform some actions through the high level of permissions it asks the user to grant to it, mainly around reading and sending SMS messages and monitoring, redirecting, and preventing outgoing phone calls", the post said. The bubble will inform you, in real time, of how much data the app is using.

Datally will also search for open WiFi Hotspots around you so that you can access these free WiFi networks instead of using your data. Over time, Datally will learn your usage patterns and offer more recommendations to save data.

Datally shows you how much data you've used on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis and alerts you when apps consume a lot of data. But as a tool to manage your bandwidth, Datally is a nice step up from the default data tracking feature in Android and whatever app your carrier may have come up with.

The Data Saver bubble blocks background data and tracks real-time data usage, whatever app you're in - it's like a speedometer for your data. If you're in range of a public network, Datally's Wi-Fi finder will notify you and help you connect.

Once you're connected to a network, don't forget to rate it to help others in the Datally community find great Wi-Fi.

Datally works on Android smartphones with Lollipop (5.0) or newer versions of the Google-backed mobile operating system.
