After using the new Ting App for awhile now, I've come to appreciate it very much but think a couple of widgets could make it even better. I'd like to see one or more widgets that track voice minutes, text message count, and MBs of data for the plan month. I now use 3G Watchdog Pro to keep track of data and it has a widget that updates the data count periodically so I can see at a glance how I'm doing. Unfortunately, the app is not very accurate with data and is frequently behind the actual usage as reported by the Ting app. It's too far off to rely on to keep me from jumping to the next data bucket.
Being able to see cumulative totals for voice, texts, and data at a glance on the home screen would be very helpful to me. Ideally these widgets could be set with various update options (ie, only over Wi-Fi, any data connection, more frequently over Wi-Fi, less over mobile data, etc.). Tapping the widget would offer a menu with two quick launch options: "Update Now" & "Launch the Ting App". A third option could be "Configure Widget" or this just could be done from within the main app.
Another widget that might be handy is a mobile data toggle that could shut down or start up mobile data at the account level with a tap of the widget. This would be different than toggling mobile data off at the phone level as some software (notably Google Play) sometimes uses background data even though data is toggled off.
