TrafficAssistant


This app is one of a monitoring software, which is monitoring network traffic on your device. The main purpose of this app is to support users who use pay-as-you-go(volume charging) plan. Though this app provides simple functions, resident process is lightweight and requires only small memories.

1) KNOWN PROBLEMS
Similar to other this kind of apps, some devices made by Samsung does not work correctly. This is caused by the same reason, behaviors of APIs used in this app is different from others. To measure more correctly on devices made by Samsung, it is recommended that you set two settings at 'Monitoring interval' to 1 minute ('Screen on' and 'Screen off').

2) IMPORTANT
'Please use as reference'
This app calculates network traffic information based on your device reports. So, it is guessed that some errors will be observed between your carrier's report.

'Functional limitations are implemented'
There is no advertisement, but some functional limitations are implemented, which you can release by donating.


3) MAIN FUNCTIONS
* Can configure flexible duration setting.
* Can set limitation of daily traffic usage.
* Can analyze traffic in each apps.

4) NON-INPLEMENTED FUNCTIONS
* Can not export data. (like csv)

5) HOW TO USE
Tap the icon from apps list, and configure settings of the functions which you want to use.

6) ABOUT SETTINGS
There are three types of settings, 'GENERAL', 'DURATION' and 'RESTRICTION'. In this section, I explain about obscure items.

GENERAL: effects all through this app.
'Enable detail logging'
While enabling this function, this app gathers traffic information in each apps. To show detail logs, (1)tap the target information in 'Show log', or (2)tap the 'Today' table which shows traffic information (total, send, receive) in 'Summary' (from status bar or widget).

'Timezon profile'
Change this item when you go to other timezone area and want to use temporary SIM. You can configure new settings using new set timezone.

DURATION: information of duration which you signed up with your carrier
You need to press 'apply' button to save settings.

RESTRICTION: limitation of daily traffic usage
To use some strategy of daily restriction, you have to set 'Quota' (and 'Valid days') in duration setting. (This function can use when you donate for this app.)

7) THRESHOLD
There are two level of threshold, 'Warning' and 'Alert'. Threshold can set 'Duration' and 'Restriction' separately. This app tries to disconnect mobile network if the disconnect option was checked, when the data traffic exceeds alert level. This option is unsupported action, it means some device cannot behave correctly. To implement this function, this app uses non-public APIs.

8) ASK FOR DONATIONS
Please donate for this app if this app satisfies you. The price of donation is around USD 2.50. The donation is acceptable via Market app. Donating release some limitation on this software.
* Can use two types of strategy of 'daily restriction' on 'Duration'.
* 'Ask for donations' message disappears.
* You can refer to bytes level information on 'Show log'
Though I do not deny the business model of advertisement, I think advertisement does not fit to this software. So I decided to ask for donations. 'Ask for donations' message is rather annoying, but please settle for it.

9) OTHERS
* The beginning of day in this app is at 0:00.
* The usage of memory is increase temporary when you donate. It is used to communicate Market app. After you reboot your device, this will disappear.

Does the job very well Couldn't find anything else that does exactly this job. Indicates how much MB you have downloaded so you feel safe you are within your quota (or bill becomes very high on PAYG). Great once it's set up, works quietly in the background/ in status bar notification. Only thing English language instructions not always easy to follow (but adequate and better than my Japanese!) but once it's set up then this doesn't matter.
