Within the next few hours, Spb Software House will release its latest product, a new GPRS traffic counter. GPRS Monitor will be the second GPRS traffic counter beside All-locations GPRS Traffic Counter (see my review here).

I've assisted Spb in the past weeks to create a great new GPRS counter and I'm proud to provide you here the first detailed screen-shots:

Today Plug-in

On the Today screen you get a detailed statistic of your connection as well as battery power overview and allows you to adjust screen backlight level.

Notification Bubble

This is the information pop-up window of GPRS Monitor that gives you valuable information about your current data connection: data amount transferred today/this week/this month and its cost; current data block usage percentage; current connection speed; monthly/daily inclusive used (if your rate plan provides it). There's also a battery power indicator together with backlight control here that let you maintain your device's power.
A real killer feature is that you can dial your Internet standard connection from that bubble as well. If you are connected to the Internet the button changes to "Disconnect". This is a real enhancement for everyone how wants to connect to the Internet manually. I love this feature!

Main Application

Here you get a complete overview about your traffic in data volume and costs on a monthly, daily or hourly base.

GPRS Monitor gives you the most possible configuration details as possible. Spb GPRS Monitor includes details for most of rate plans of major GPRS service providers. You can update this list anytime from the Internet - just tap the Update button and the latest information will be automatically downloaded. If your network operator is not listed there you can enter all the information by hand.

GPRS Monitor also supports profiles - you can pre-define settings for all the connections and tariffs you use, your roaming settings, etc. and quickly switch between them once you use a different connection.

CSV File

You can also export your traffic into a CSV file to be used/edited on the Desktop PC later.

Final Conclusion

Spb Software House's GPRS Monitor is the most powerful GPRS traffic monitor available today. It was a great pleasure to work with these guys and they've tried to add as many tariff options as possible. But also from the whole integrations from the Today plug-in to the bubble incl. the connection button to the whole main application you will not find anything better.

GPRS Monitor is available within the next few hours and can be purchased from Spb Software House homepage. Beside this Spb Software House will also launch a page where they've added tons of GPRS tariffs. This is also interesting to see how other countries/network operators bill GPRS!

UPDATE: GPRS Monitor is available for download now! Go for it and test it!

Cheers ~ Arne
