An extremely handy app, Apptro allows users to keep a tab on wireless carrier’s data plan consumption and hence save money by avoiding overusage charges. “We all know that mobile apps like YouTube, Skype and Spotify hog bandwidth. However, not everyone uses the same apps and hence we all need a smart and fun way to monitor what apps we use. That’s the unique approach of Apptro – it makes monitoring app usage fun by bringing the social angle. Users can tweet or publish their favorite apps, as well as discover their friends’ “playlist” of apps via social media.” says Ajay, the man behind the app.
