    Hi all.

    I have just been checking my data usage for the month and phandroid came top of the list. I hardly use it unless connected to a network. Why is it so high?

    It could be a background process still running, they also have apps to monitor data usage.

    Phandroid is an app for using this forum. It has used 70mb this month. As mentioned in original post, I hardly use it on 3g, I use it 90% of the time on WiFi, and its not like I am always on here

    It seems a lot for background stuff

    Once again, phandroid is the biggest data user this month. I really can't understand why it is so high. Once again, I have hardly used it on 3g

    ah, they are going to be releasing a forum only app and a news/forum app as well. The forum app will be based on tapatalk. I'm not sure of the timeline though.
