Hi Lisa, as of right now Koodo has no intentions of bring back the Koodo app especially since they just discontinued it. Set up a browser shortcut to the web based version on your Homescreen, that's the best you'll get unless there's a huge demand for the app to return.

Unfortunately, no. It was mainly used by people to check their data usage. The website is now completely mobile friendly, and you can make a desktop shortcut directly to it, as Paul stated above.

I would be very happy if Koodo can create a simple app just to display usage.

I don't need information on billing, rateplan and other detail like selfserve.

The fact that you can use an app to view a mobile website does not mean that the mobile website is an app.

@Timo, I am not sure if the discussion is worth
I believed you copied from this source: https://www.hswsolutions.com/services/mobile-web-development/mobile-website-vs-apps/,
That one is opinion of one author, without any references to other mainstream sources like wiki or academic one. You could keep your opinion, I would not challenge it. If you find those interesting, I would not comment.

If you are a developer, the definition of app covered "web browsers". And if you download Chrome on ios, you have to go to App store. iOS and Android have webkit that allow developers to use functions of a browser for other purposes. Safari was built on Webkit also, they are not a different type. It is an app.

At no point did I say that a web browser is not an app. What I said was that a webPAGE is not an app, in much the same way that a TV dinner is not a microwave.
