Website tracks the consumption of data by apps

  • Wireless trade group CTIA launched a website, which examines how some popular apps on our smartphones consume data. 

    Know My App examines a number of apps and determines the amount of cellular data used by each one. The tests on both Android and iOS devices are based on a single day's usage. 

    As expected, apps that let people upload content such as photos take up the most data. The website reveals that apps such as Netflix, YouTube and Pandora hog a substantial amount of data as well. 

    PC World was the first to report details regarding Know My App.
