Vodafone UK has released a new Android app, allowing subscribers to not only keep track of their accounts without ringing through to customer care, but also locate the nearest free WiFi hotspot. The My Vodafone app shows your current usage of minutes, messaging and data, and how close to your tariff limits you are.

There's also information on the tariff itself, including contract end date, when you can expect the bill to arrive, and for roughly how much it will be. Those using their phone abroad can also keep an eye on any roaming charges they might be racking up. Finally, there's a map to show any nearby BT Openzone WiFi hotspots, access to which is bundled with many of Vodafone's plans.

You'll need an Android 1.6 device or higher to run the app, and it's worth noting that the data isn't updated in real-time so what it says on-screen may not be the exact state of your bill. You can download My Vodafone from the Android Market.

    Have just been informed by Vodafone that the app does not work. Have had it downloaded on my Wildfire S for 6 weeks and it keeps telling me that it is “coming soon for business users” I am NOT a business user! Vodafone admitted it the app is rubbish and suggested that I should phone customer service for my account balance. Don’t waste your time trying to download it
