    Onavo Count promises to help you find out which of your apps have a big appetite for data. And it's free.

    Just found a new and free app the will track your data usage. It will also break down how much data each app is using. It's called Onavo Count. Grab it before they put a price on it.

    Rafagon started a thread on this app earlier. Threads merged.

    Just installed it. I imagine it will be pulled from the App Store soon or at least disabled by 6.0.1 since it installs a profile and requires your lock screen passcode (if you have one set). We had some pretty awesome settings toggles on 5.0, which also installed a profile and were a great SBSettings alternative since the 4S jailbreak wasn't out yet, but Apple quickly disabled them with a firmware update.

    I just installed this App. It seems like it will be very useful in determining which App is using how much data. Thanks a lot for posting about this guys!

    Downloaded that app awhile was good until it didn't let me load up a few of my apps, namely the FB app.

    I can't imagine how Apple would have missed its function since it asks to installed a profile as soon as it is initially launched.

    I didn't have any problems with FB after I installed Onavo. What OS were you on? Are you Jailbroken?

    Do you know if there are any other apps out there that require installing these profiles? It was just a guess based on Apple disabling the 5.0 settings toggles that used these profiles.

    Thanks. Apparently, it wasn't the profile installation that caused Apple to disable the toggles then.
