New version of data monitoring app promises to guard shared data plan users against bill shockVANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 2, 2014 — (PRNewswire) — Mobidia Technology Inc., a mobile app developer, today released new shared plan functionality for its popular My Data Manager app, which provides data usage monitoring tools to help smartphone users save money on their mobile bill. With the feature, My Data Manager now extends its valuable data monitoring solution to consumers on shared, group or family plans.
Mobidia added support for shared data plans to My Data Manager's functionality to address the growing global need for a monitoring tool to combat overage fees and soaring phone bills related to data usage on group and family plans. Many mobile operators now offer shared plans worldwide, allowing families, businesses or individuals with multiple devices to share data among a group for one rate, and experts predict the number of shared plan users to increase. According to a 2014 report from AT&T, the number of its subscribers on shared mobile accounts more than tripled from the second quarter of 2013 to 2014, and a report posted by the Broadband Commission states that 25 percent of mobile consumers will own more than one device by 2016.
"As the number of group-plan users increases, so does the number of consumers who suffer the fate of bill shock from unexpected data overage fees," said Derek Spratt, president and CEO at Mobidia. "The latest update to My Data Manager with added support for shared data plans solves this issue and we are excited to share it with our millions of app users around the world."
My Data Manager is a resource for millions of people worldwide. The free app allows users of Apple and Android devices to track and manage data consumption and rely on alerts and notifications to help avoid expensive overage charges. Its high app store ratings and global usage demonstrate the ongoing need for a simple, device-based utility to help people monitor their data consumption and avoid overage charges.
With the shared plan functionality update, My Data Manager allows those who are part of a family, group or shared plan to create a group within the app and link their usage, offering an accurate and collective view of data usage across the entire group that is easily accessible. Additionally, users have the unique ability to right-size data plans; by accessing the app's historical data to understand shared usage, My Data Manager users can ensure they are on the correct plan and not paying for data they are not using.
