Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
• Track your Wi-Fi hotspot usage.
• Zero configuration required. It just works.
Bandwidth+ is a simple app so only tracks the network usage on the Mac it is running on. If you are tethered to an iPhone then it will count the usage while tethered.
At the moment local network traffic is not ignored so Time Capsule backups are counted. A future version will be smarter and ignore Time Capsule data.
What's New in Version 1.8
• Squished a bug. Bandwidth+ was accidentally counting 4 GB for some USB wireless dongles.
I’ve been looking at mobile data plans for traveling, and I thought “I wonder how much data I’m using now.” Within one minute I google searched how to monitor that for macs, this came up, I downloaded it, clicked open and it was telling me how much data I’m using. It’s how you want (and these days, I guess expect) everything to setup and run. Zero hassle. Do it to it, fellas.
Just What I Was Looking For
I have two different internet connections at home. One is unlimited and the other has a daily limit. This app gives me peace of mind being able to see how much data is being used. Very nice that it is simple and easy to see right at the top of the screen.
It just works.
There was a minor confusion when I first used it, while trying to setup monthly usage in preferences. But that fixed itself once the app detected some usage on the current network. I like how simple an unintrusive this little app is. Thanks for making it.
