Please add an option to set unlimited wifi usage but continue to monitor wifi traffic. Right now I have to specify an amount of traffic and I don't like that after that amount of GBs I see that read bar and I have an alert bugging me.
Also it will be usefull to have an icon (in the top bar near the clock) that will change colour when it will reach the usage alert.
Thank very much for this usefull application.

Hi again danndan.
The subject of unlimited wifi access has been raised before. What I do is go into the Wi-Fi plan and delete all numbers in the Wi-Fi plan box and then press OK. This then results in it appearing that you have set a 1Gb limit. If you approach that limit then the system used to just move up to a higher limit without sounding an alarm, however as I have not downloaded anywhere near a Gb recently I cannot confirm that this still works. If it does not continue to scale up you can always set some ridiculously high figure.
I hope that helps.

I know that I can set a very high value but I think it's more professional to add an option for unlimeted wifi trafic. That's my opinion.
Also I found a "bug". I added the widget on the screen and it has 4.9GB for network traffic. That's correct, but when I click Network usage I have just 2.3GB. It seems that is a delay between the widget and what network usage says. The widget does a refresh when I click it but in network usage I didnt' find something to force a refresh or to set a time for automatically refresh. It just says the time when it checked network usage. The same happes on the Usage button. Is this the correct behaviour?

I agree danndan,
It would be better if we could just say that we had unlimited wi-fi or whatever but my suggestions were how you might best work with what we have (for free). Hopefully it will continue to improve with the help of comments such as yours.
As for the widget delay, I think this is a known issue, though having stated that I have had a look to try and find earlier comments and failed (after limited efforts) to find them. Whatever, now that you have posted this it will be an extra incentive for the team to try and improve it.
Fingers crossed for the New Year. ;-)

We are working on this as well as several other items. We had to shuffle things around recently due to some critical bugs with Ice Cream Sandwich, so that has caused a delay in the work in getting items like this addressed.
