Wireless Industry Site Highlights App Data Consumption
The wireless industry's trade and lobbying organization (the CTIA) this week unveiled a new website that attempts to highlight how much data is often used by the most popular apps. The KnowMyApp.Org
website includes data consumption estimates for the the top 50 paid and free apps from the Apple and Google stores, and CTIA says they intend to add more apps each month. The website allows visitors to hunt for specific apps by app name, operating system or app categories and may help those who don't even know what a gigabyte is
(the majority of users). For example, the site notes that the Pandora app for Android
eats an average of 997.10 MB per month, or 48% of a 2 GB monthly data allotment.
