So I have unlimited data on my ip4 and until the last few months I rarely ever came close to hitting the 3gb soft cap. For a couple of months now I am using a little less than 4gb per month but nothing has changed with my apps or really how I use them. I stay connected to wifi when it is available and I do not stream media while I am off wifi.

Does anyone know of an app (iTunes or Cydia) that monitors the data usage per app? I have found some that monitor the entire usage but that is not what I am really looking for.

I feel rather silly. Did some googling and looked on the app store before I made that post and somehow missed the multiples apps looking right at me.

I use Onavo Extend. Not only does it monitor your data usage, but it also installs a profile to your phone which causes ur traffic to pass through a proxy server which compresses the data before it gets to you. What this means is that you can save up to 80% of ur total data usage by using it. It depends how u use ur phone, but its worked awesome for me and saved me about 400mb so far this month. It doesnt compress anything over SSL. So anything that uses https doesnt get compressed (ie: netflix)
