Hi

This app has been down for the last couple of weeks as O2 made some changes to it that conflicted with the application.

It has now been fixed and after checking my balance a pop up on my screen said to tell all friends that the app is free this weekend !

Deff worth the download, a great little app to check your balance and it was well worth the 59p yet alone the chance to get it for free this weekend!

EDIT: Just checked on my iTunes and it is already showing as FREE from today so download away!

Link updated direct to app in Itunes app store

I have this and is spot on. However this is a "Freebie" so should be moved to the Freebie section, but non the less its fantastic.
#2
this is a great app.
#3
If a mod can move it then please move to the Freebie section, apologies for posting in the wrong section :-(
#4
It's showing up as free today already so get downloading everyone!

Why would you want to give a third party application your log in details? If people think it's a great idea I may start building an application that lets people access there Internet banking! Ask yourself how safe are your O2 log in details? In principle it is a fantastic idea but, giving your log in allows access not only to your remaining allowance but also your whole O2 account! Look before you leap!! Until O2 build an app I'm happy to send a free text to recieve my balance.

I have had no problems with this and he has contact with O2 direct so I am sure everything is OK, I have had no issues with it and nothing has gone wrong.

Same here, im sure Apple wouldn't approve the app if it was in anyway dodgy
#9
Yeah, that may be the case that he has contact with O2 and nothing has went wrong, so far! If he has contact why does it not just ask for your mobile number? That for me would be adequate information I would part with to be able to know my remaining allowance. Kicksmithy, as for downloading it, I ain't! It's a great find but just not sure of giving up my log in details so readily to third parties!
#10
Thanks this will come in handy :)
#11
cheers....definately worth it for the convience of being able to check
#12
Brilliant!! Thanks :) Heat added.
#13
Great find. Thanks! Heat + rep
#14
HOT! Is this any good than Mobile Minutes Tracker for O2 http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=320972531&mt=8 (£0.59) ? Being FREE is always better :-D !

Thanks OP!

This is why Apple authenticate ALL submissions to the app store, making sure they are all legit!
#16
Shocking that these kind of applications do not come provided on a phone you take out on contract!

Instead you must resort to passing on your login details to a third party who will possibly host them on an unsafe database..

Wonder if it would work if you changed you login details after you pass them on?
#17
Does anyone know if this can be used on an ipod touch and linked to your o2 account if you dont have an iphone?

Essentially does the same but the inteface on Mobile Allowance seemed a lot clearer to me when i chose it, plus it was higher on the most downloaded apps. Download it and take a look anyway, if u dont like it stick to your old one!
#19
Just as a note this is for PAY MONTHLY users only, will NOT work for Pay as you go! (just tried!!)

Can't see why it wouldn't work. Your just providing login details to access an account.

Answer from the Developer himself (Michael)

Your login details are stored on your iPhone using the standard settings storage mechanism. All communication with the O2 website is done securely (encrypted with SSL) directly between your iPhone and their website; hence why it can take a while to load on slower connections.

Bottom line: you're not supplying your username and password to a third-party - everything is kept between your iPhone and O2's website.

Is there anything to stop another app from accessing that information though? Or a person? I've never been keen on storing passwords in case the phone/laptop/pc is stolen.

Your info is only added once and ur password is asterisk out (****) just the same as you setting HUKD to remember you when u load up website. No access to it again only to change it at which point it your username and password all comes back up as blank anyway

I'd rather the app just sent a text to 21202 every 6 hours then took it from that.


Essential it does but when u open app it just logins in to your O2 account instead, quicker, more up to date and gives more info, IMO it should come as a standard O2 app on the iphone
#26
I love this app; my only gripe is that O2 keep making some subtle changes to their website every few months and breaking it.

Not the developers fault, but don't expect it always to be available because of this as it takes Apple a while to re-approve it
#27
The application is shown as 59pence. It's not free.
#28
Wanted it to be free for ages. YAAY thanks.

it was certainly free when i logged in to the app store from my iphone this morning.
#30
Doesnt work if youre on a business contract :(

---

why are people so worried saving stuff/passwords on their iphone. SETUP a passcode so when u unlock the phone it asks for the code. and set it so it deletes all data after 10 wrong attempts?!

also may be worth investing in mobileme (60day trial) then 59£ a year, which tells you where your phone is via gps and can wipe the data from the mobile me website... also keeps all your data synced with your pc/mobile me website.

(ps: if the phone is locked with a code u cant turn it off so ur data is safe.)

You are, however, allowed to take measured risks.

This isn't the same as clicking on a "Your PC is infected with viruses!!!1111" popup - do you often click on them?
#32
A o2 employee who had an iphone and had this app himself said that it was 48hrs behind is that true?
#33
Does it work with a simplicity contract?

Nope I opened my online account and then used this and everything is synced at the same time, remember this is the updated version.

My experience is that the O2 website will usually be 48 hours behind so I would assume the app will only show what the O2 website would show seeing as that is where it gets the info from.

Yes, picks up mins/texts/next bill date. Didn't have any charges so can't confirm it would pick those up, but imagine it probably does if it picks up the rest.

Yes.


Ooops, I really should remember to read to the end before answering questiions :)

21202 returns the same result for me. Not sure if both the website and 21202 query the same DB, since one comparison isn't really conclusive. But if they do then I guess its as accurate as you can get without speaking to an agent (or logging your own usage).

And what would they do with your account? Upgrade your tariff sneakily and run away laughing?

Sorry, just think you're being a bit too paranoid. :thumbsup:
