We recently switched from Afrihost “Business” Uncapped to Vox Telecom capped so that we could do cool things like actually load websites and stuff. However monitoring cap from their website is quite a pain
So I made a Windows Universal app in a few evenings. It’s been in the store for a couple weeks now and it seems to be working well for people, so I’m posting here.
The phone build has a few quirks, but I’ll sort those out soon.
- Runs on Windows 8.1/10 and Windows Phone 8.1/10.
- Once you log into the app on one device, it will sync to your other devices and login to the app automatically.
- Supports 2 Factor Authentication (accounts with a One-Time Pin).
- Has a “Data Burndown” section which gives you basic info about how fast you are using your data, and whether you will have enough for the month. I still need to add a graph and usage history to this.
- If you leave the app open, the data will refresh itself in the background every 2 minutes.
It’s not in yet, but I’ll be adding live-tiles so you don’t need to even open the app to view stuff.
The normal interface. Tap any of the accounts to view more details.
The Data Burndown screen.
And of course, phone.
Let me know if you have anything you’d like added, or find any bugs.
This app is not endorsed by Vox, and is not “official”.
A note on privacy: This app sends/receives data from exactly two endpoints. The first is, of course, the Vox website. The second is an Application Insights instance on Azure, which is used to log crashes and uses. When the app is used or crashes it sends some info about what happened – none of that data personally identifies you, and absolutely none of your info is ever transferred. This is very standard in almost every app, and helps improve it by being able to see what broke.
