According to her, Data Saver bubble will be used to block background data and track real-time data usage, whatever app one is using at a particular time, it works like a speedometer for ones data. The app has been dubbed as Datally and is now available through the Play Store.

Not only are smartphone users constantly thinking about data balances, but they do not understand where their data is going, nor do they feel in control over allocating data to the apps they really care about. For the latter scenario, the app provides for a single button hitting which will let you channelize your data on only the active app. The app, called Datally, helps users monitor their data use in real time, and ultimately reduce their data usage. Plus, if you are more inclined to sports, your favorite sports teams can also be tracked with Google Now. It shows Google Maps directions to nearby Wi-Fi and public hotspots. It also shows app-wise data consumption, i.e., YouTube, Instagram, Chrome, etc. Having a separate app would help you in setting up restrictions for data usage as well. Moreover, you can see the list of all the apps and the data eaten by the relevant apps. Additionally, you can also suggest your connected network to Datally. Also, you can save your personal information by opting out of personalized advertising.

With the Personalized Alerts feature, Datally alerts users when apps start consuming a lot of data, and it allows them to see how much data they've used on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. Sometimes you just need a little more than what you've got on your data plan. The app will be useful for users who are on a prepaid network where each MB of data is important.
