I know there are a bunch of these available, but they require polling which uses more battery and are generally inaccurate unless you have them refreshing very frequently (more battery drain). If koodo implemented a data usage widget it should be able to use less battery by linking to your account and be more accurate!

This would be awesome.

I know koodo recommend using 3g watchdog which works great and the paid version allows more tweaking and rules. I didn't notice any significant battery impact.

Check it out.

I was using 3G watchdog, it wasn't 100% accurate though based on the koodo usage shows and although the battery impact might not have been significant it is just another polling service which will impact the battery. I agree 3G watchdog is great, a dedicated widget from koodo would still be awesome :)

It was asked for a while ago but it didn't seem to make it into subsequent builds. Maybe someday.

You can use the Self Serve app. most Android OS using 4.0 and above will have it's own data usage tracker.

Well, seeing as how there are many out there and Koodo uses their Self Serve app for data tracking, I doubt you're going to get a data tracker widget.
