Are you having problems with phantom data charges on your wireless bill? Interested in which apps are causing you to always go over your data cap? If so, I have the perfect jailbreak tweak for you.

It’s called iNetUsage, and it is a tweak available on Cydia that allows you to monitor your data usage on an app-to-app basis.

There’s even a provision to break it down over Wi-Fi and cellular usage, along with setting up specific data ranges for your analysis.

Overall, iNetUsage is an extremely robust tweak that will have you pinching every kilobyte of data out of your monthly plan. Unlimited data users need not apply…

If you’ve been struggling with a better way to manage your data, then seriously, iNetUsage is a virtual no-brainer.

True, it’s going to cost you a bit up front, but if you’re looking for a way to gain low-level visibility into your data usage and consumption habits, then you’d be hard pressed to find a better alternative.

Again, if you have a jailbroken iPhone, iNetUsage can be purchased on Cydia for the price of $1.99.

Have you tried it yet? Does it seem like a tweak you’d be interested in? Let us know in the comments.

  • Man there’s to many apps And tweaks on cydia that should just be free. Who would pay for this.

    • I agree with you to an extent, there’s a lot of crap out there (that’s one of the reasons why I try to review every tweak, to filter out the good and bad for the viewers) but I actually think that this tweak is one of the better ones. It’s extremely in-depth and can prove to be useful and interesting to those who are concerned about their data usage. It’s also an interesting behind the scenes look at the iPhone’s data usage methodology.

        That’s one of the main reasons I follow your RSS feed. Thanks for putting the time and effort into reviewing all these Cydia apps and tweaks.

        People tend to cuss pirates. My reason is I pirated coz i’m not paying for craps!
        Only paid for what is worth. (Folder Enhancer, PhotoAlbums+ just to name a few.)

  • mngstr if you are pirating, you think it is useful, not crap. Otherwise, why are you getting it? This particular tweak is worth its money if you are going to be saving more than $1.49 the first month. After that its free.

    Your logic escapes me.

      Hi Tarek,
      No no don’t get me wrong buddy. I’m not talking about this app. Personally I wouldn’t bother getting it. As i’ve unlimited Data, and my carrier doesn’t gives a damn abt ppl tethering. ;P
      I’m speaking for way over $10 tweaks. I could use a pack of ciggies for that. ;p I respect Devs Tweaks and cracked ones is meant to be ‘testing’ purposes (my personal reason). The world just keeps abusing it. πŸ™‚
      Hopes my thesis returns your logica. πŸ™‚

    Please correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t this similar to what’s included in iOS 5?

    • Chris

      Not everyone can use iOS 5 yet πŸ™

  • After using this tweak for a while, it’s extremely interesting to ponder over the data it collects. Things that you had no idea would use data end up on the list. Pretty enlightening.

    Has anybody noticed any battery drain using this app?

    • This is my concern too with any app / tweak that “monitors”
