After a months-long testing period, Google today made its Datally data usage management app for Android available to the public. Here’s a quick peek.
Yes, it’s a weird name. (Google says it is pronounced as “day tally”.) The app was tested under the name Triangle in the Philippines only for about five months and released worldwide overnight with no real warning. And it’s the type of thing that should just be built-in to Android, of course: One assumes that releasing it as a standalone app now is simply a temporary measure to ensure that it can reach as many users as possible more quickly.
I think Google got so many complaints about data usage overages this made sense for them to have an app like this.
