[prMac.com] Amsterdam, Netherlands - HedonicSoft today announced Download Meter, an iPhone and iPod Touch application that allows to measure and track traffic - the amount of data iPhone/iPod transfers from and to the Internet while surfing websites, watching YouTube, checking email, researching maps, or playing online games. Both mobile internet (GPRS/3G/EDGE) and WiFi traffic can be measured by Download Meter.
Measuring traffic allows you to control your expenses on your connectivity by not exceeding the limits of data you can transfer for free per your cell phone plan or traffic allowed by your WiFi plan. You can also estimate your needs in traffic before traveling abroad and estimate your expenses. In addition to measuring mobile Internet traffic, Download Meter tracks WiFi traffic, which is useful when you are visiting cafes or restaurants that have traffic limits in their free WiFi network (as in some Eastern countries).
Traffic can be measured with up to byte precision. Inbound, outbound and total traffic is computed. Download Meter computes traffic using counters. If you wish to measure the traffic since the current moment (e.g. since the beginning of your trip overseas or arrival at a cafe where free WiFi is limited), just create a new counter.
To measure the traffic of the current month, run Download Meter on the first day of the month and create a new counter. During that month, the counter will show you the traffic of the current month. At the beginning of the next month, you can reset that counter or pause that counter and create a new one. You can create as many counters as you need. There are several predefined counters that make using Download Meter even easier. Get control of your spending on mobile Internet with Download Meter!
