Megabytes IN THE ICON BADGE:
Megabytes requires low battery consuming GPS services that allows app to run in background when cellular tower changes. It updates usage information in background and displays it on the home screen as a red badge. It supports iPhones as it requires devices with cellular connections. Cellular tower occur periodically as you move. Usage information will not update when you are using data on one location. You can also configure it to show megabytes used or remaining in your plan.
LOCKSCREEN & NOTIFICATION CENTER:
In addition to the megabytes badge, you can set up the app to notify you of any changes in the usage when app updates, right in the Lockscreen and Notification Center.
It works really easy. All you need to do is enable notifications in Megabytes settings section and configure notifications center. This alert will also appear in the Notification Center and Lockscreen to show the megabytes used or remaining. You can set the number of notifications as you prefer (max 1, max 5 etc) in the settings app > notification center > megabytes. We recommend using 1 notification with no alert.
BILLING CYCLE & CONFIGURATIONS
You can set a start date and choose length of billing cycle in 0 to 999 days, weeks or months. So, no matter what billing period length you have it accommodates all of it. For example, you can have 1 month or 30 day or 4 weeks or 12 month billing period or any other combination you come up with.
You can set quota up to 9999 MB as home icon screen can only show max. 9999. You are also able to adjust or reset data usage as needed during a billing period.
