SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--My Data Manager, the popular mobile data management app, today announced the launch of Mobile Plan Matcher to help consumers effortlessly find plans that save them the most money. This feature learns an individual’s usage patterns, compares it against mobile plans available from all carriers, and recommends a list of the best plans ranked by price. My Data Manager has moved beyond simply providing users insight on their mobile usage; it now also harnesses the data and provides users with personalized plan recommendations.
In a recent study, 40 percent of respondents reported changing their mobile plan in the last year and 50 percent of respondents identified price as the most important factor in decisions to switch plans. Consumers find that shopping for a mobile plan is stressful, but they regularly reevaluate their plans to save money. As Mobile Plan Matcher matches each user to the plan that’s best tailored to their individual needs, the days of paying for overage fees or leftover, unused data is over. By analyzing history for data usage, call minutes, and number of text messages, the app matches users with their ideal plans.
Also, 62 percent of respondents reported they were charged overage fees in the last year. Clearly, mobile users struggle to understand how much data they actually need. With carriers offering unique features such as free data for specific applications (“zero-rated apps”), data rollover allowances, or “unlimited” but throttled data, mobile plan options are also becoming more complicated and confusing. With the launch of Mobile Plan Matcher and its innovative technology, users can now effortlessly be matched with the best fitting plan.
"We are thrilled to launch a feature that helps consumers effortlessly save money on their monthly mobile bill." says Eric MacKinnon, Director of Product at My Data Manager. "Mobile plans in the U.S. have become increasingly varied with lots of different bells and whistles - there are shared data-limits, zero-rated apps, data rollover options, just to name a few. And it's gotten pretty hard for consumers to tell what kind of plan will work out best for them. By analyzing how consumers use their devices, and keeping track of all their plan options out there, our technology is able to recommend plans best suited for the individual user, taking the stress out of mobile plan shopping."
The My Data Manager app is a simple and powerful tool for users to take control of their mobile data usage and save money on their monthly phone bills. The app tracks how much data is used across devices, both for those on individual plans and shared plans, like those specially designed for families. It has been downloaded by more than 11 million users worldwide. Check it out on the App Store or Google Play. Mobile Plan Matcher is currently available for Android with iOS coming soon.
