    I am looking for an app on my iPhone which will tell me what is using up my data so quickly. Anyone know of one? If you do please post it below! Thanks

    And I did look in the AppStore but only saw ones that told me how much In total I have used percentage wise, not specifically what apps are using the data. Maybe I didn't look hard enough? Thanks guys I really need to figure out what's eating through my data like a hummer and petrol.

    Percentage would be a start. If you have those numbers and your total data usage, you could do math and find out how many MB each application is using.

    I'm not sure about the accuracy/reliability of the app you found but it's a good start if you can't find anything that displays in units of data. If you didn't install it, maybe try installing it and perhaps there's a setting to change it from percent to MB?

    Sorry wrote this ony phone and realized sounded a bit jumbled. Have NOT found one which tells me what apps have used what data didn't make that clear in the original post. Only found ones which told me how much percentage wise in total I have used from my total allotment

    Oh. I'm new to the iPhone but I'd guess this is something you'd have to jailbreak to find out exactly. Until then, check iCloud (iTunes Match?), and obviously streaming video/video calls would do the most damage. Also, Speedtest tests probably use a lot. I upwards of 20 mb/s on LTE, and if it takes about 5 seconds that's 100mb right there just for the download
