A few months ago, Rogers/Fido updated their websites to provide customers with the ability to view their wireless usage in almost real-time. The information was updated every four hours and gave users a great tool to track wireless usage.
To expand on that functionality and to set themselves apart from the other two Canadian iPhone carriers, Rogers and Fido have released new apps called “My Account”.
Both Rogers and Fido each have their own version of the app and both apps provide customers with their wireless usage. Like the website, users can view their voice, data and messaging usage right from their iPhone, which updates every 20 minutes instead of four hours as on the Rogers/Fido websites. The apps also allow customers to view their current balance and make a payment via credit card.
Both of the Rogers My Account and Fido My Account apps are available on the iTunes App Store for free.
