    Anyone know of a data analyzation program for iOS. Android has it built into the OS, you can see which apps are using how much data and turn them off individually. I'm sucking up a lot of data on my iphone and can't figure out why and would love to be able to analyze my data this way.

    I do run data usage Pro and it's very useful, but it only breaks down data into daily usage, and doesn't specifically note which apps use how much data.

    Hmm, reading some reviews and it only looks like you can analyze per app data use for your entire billing period or month. I really miss in Android how you could analyze app data use by custom days, even down to a single day.

    Anyone know of anything like that?

    I was most pleased with Data Wiz:

    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/datawiz-free-mobile-data-management/id544544238?mt=8

    BUT, like what you're already using, it's pretty much for measuring overall data usage. That's useful, but it's not what you asked for.

    Unfortunately I don't have anything to recommend because, while I tried several, none of them seemed to totally work or even agree with each other! They'd often simply leave out an app that I knew I was using a lot. Whatever method those apps use, it's apparently sketchy and unreliable.

    I gave up on all of them and simply used Data Wiz's daily graph (and the map showing WHERE you used data the most) and I started, over time, to get a sense for the days (and locations) that were better and worse and learned what kinds of usage made my day go better or worse. So it wasn't hard science, but it helped me in an abstract way.

    Ok, but why are you OCD? Worried about power loss, right?

    I did it for a month and learned a lot about myself, thus helping my power-usage. It's not something you have to keep forever.

    I actually do have ocd. 15 years old. Trying to combat it. Very difficult.
