Wired App Guide Essential Tools

Written by Richard. Posted in Blog

3G Watchdog is fired up to be listed in the “Wired App Guide: 400 Reviews of Essential Tools.” 


The magazine is on the stands until January, 2012 and it is a great guide to give along with that new smart phone or tablet this holiday season.  Find us in the #1 position under “95 Outstanding Apps” for productivity with an 8/10 rating.

Wired reviewed iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone 7 and Android apps.


3G Watchdog Free data usage counter update

Version 0.31.0 was released on November 8th and “I think I’m turning Japanese”.  We now have a Japanese translation!  Thanks again to a volunteer translator for making this possible, we love our translators and testers. That makes 26 languages* 3G Watchdog Free offers.

Another addition is a time lapse bar below the data usage bar.
The new, smaller time lapse bar shows where you are relative to the end of your plan.


Separated at Birth?

Have you been to see “The Adventures of Tintin” yet? In English Tintin’s dog is named “Snowy” although in the original stories by Belgian author Hergé his name was “Milou”. I think he is my long lost brother.  Wouah!  (That’s French for “Woof”.)  We enjoyed reading the original books. The film referenced two or three of twenty-four illustrated adventures of Tintin.

3G Watchdog Free Update – v.0.29.0 and Widget Review

Posted on Sat, Aug 06, 2011

3G Watchdog free was just updated to version 0.29.0

This update adds the ability to choose your language and set your day of week, which were added to the Pro version earlier this week.  These were requested features from you globetrotters.

Does it bug you when technology selects your language for you? It does me, so we let you choose whichever language you want 3G Watchdog to be in, from our growing list.  Note that you might have to restart the app before you see the language change.

We also added the option to change the starting day of the week. Ever buy a datebook from a different country because it was spiffy, you were there, whatever, and the week starts on Monday instead of Sunday, or vice versa? I have done that and ended up missing appointments, thinking they were a day later than they were!  If you change countries, you can set 3G Watchdog to start on the same day of the week as your current region so it won’t leave you second-guessing.

Several minor bugs were hopefully shown the door as well. We appreciate those of you who take the time to give use helpful feedback, including your phone, Android version and any other notes when you have a question or issue, which often leads to a resolution of a bug or a tweak needed for the neverending new devices.

We got our widgets reviewed – woof!

A site devoted to reviewing Android widgets in detail covered our widgets. 

If you are new to 3G Watchdog, this is a good primer on how to set up the widget to make the most of it.

They just reviewed some funny 80’s button widgets and a count-anything widget for you obsessive compulsive types.
