    Hello all,

    Anyone know if there is an app (or even if it's possible to do this) which displays how much bandwidth individual apps use?

    I use Netcounter to monitor overall bandwidth, but recently I've had some issues with using too much bandwidth (I have "unlimited" bandwidth, with a FUP of 500MB a month at the moment).

    I have some suspects, but it would be nice if I didn't have to uninstall everything and add the apps one by one each day until I find out which ones are causing the problem.

    I'm happy with trafficstats. It's no good separating mobile from wifi but otherwise it works well.

    Thanks, that appears to be exactly what I'm looking for.

    Ok, I know this is a 2 year old thread, but it came up in my search (for the same info) and I just have to ask...if the app is "no good separating mobile from wifi but otherwise it works well." then how on earth is it even useful? Nobody gets billed for wifi usage, do they? Heck, I expect several of my apps to consume tons of wifi bandwidth (like my podcast apps. They can pull several hundred megs in a night) that's why I WANT them using wifi. it's apps that use mobile bandwidth that I need to figure out. I'm mysteriously burning tons of bandwidth and I can't figure out why

    I take it you are running an older version of Android? ICS and above has this information built in now.

    At the time Traffic Stats did exactly what I wanted (I believe it can actually be set to monitor mobile data only) - There are a few other apps in the store now which also do the same thing but unfortunately their names evade me at the moment. Check out Traffic Stats though.
