This app gives you a non-intrusive, real-time indicator of your data speed/usage in your status bar. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND to anyone that has ever found themselves holding their arm out trying to get a better signal. This is VERY useful when in spotty area's. Even helps me determine which wifi signal is better or if it would be better to turn off wifi and use cell towers. Instead of just grumbling about a videos or webpages not loading and not knowing if anything I do is helping. I can easily see if holding the phone in a different spot increases the speed and by how much.
I've always liked it so much that it's become one of the first few apps every time I have a new phone. A month ago it got buggy to the point that I'd have to open the app every minute, but the bug fixes for nougat solved the issue. This bugs are back now that I'm on 7.1.1. I hope the developers fix it soon.
Works ok on my OP3T but I think this app doesn't consider data usage via hotspots. I regularly open a hotspot & other devices connect to it. Bit even when these connected devices are streaming videaos my data counter doesn't increase nor does the speed indicator budge from 0. Need to fix this aspect else count will be severely compromised.
It does its job really well. Simple, easy and useful. I heard some users complaining about this app not working properly on Nougat devices. Well guess what, I'm using this on Lineage OS 14.1 which is 7.1.1 and the thing is that it's a beta version. I have been using this for a while on this ROM and didn't found anything wrong.
Liked the app, but 2 bugs I found so far. First, sometimes it disappears some times by own, then I need to disable-enable "Hide Locksreen Notification" to see the speed of internet and Second totally wrong data. Just showing random data like 3-5 GB for only using 200-500 MB. Rest liked it.
Crashing after Nougat update! I thought I was the ony one but seems many are experiencing this issue. It stops working and is crashing suddenly after a few hours. I have to manually open the app to make it work. Please fix this asap.
