If you have an iPad 3G data plan that was provisioned *after* the AT&T update that no longer allowed unlimited data plans then you probably want a way to keep track of you data usage and also know how much you have left. Fortunately, there is a great utility that lets you keep track of your data usage do you don’t go over your plan.
Data Genie HD is an iPad utility that helps you keep track of your data usage and a lot more. Most of the major data providers are all moving away from “unlimited” data plans so this is a great app to have with you.
Data Genie estimates how much data you can safely use without going over your plan. If you are getting close to going over your plan and you have a few days left in your billing cycle, the app can estimate how much you can use without going over. No matter what plan you are on, this iPad utility can help you out.
The app does a pretty good job but it can only estimate based on averages. It is fairly accurate but never rely on it to be 100%. As a utility it is really nice to be able to track your data usage especially if you are on a limited plan and for $0.99 you get a lot of information you would not have otherwise.
