Love it

After working with my laptop tethered to my phone and getting a text message that I'd used 75% of my mobile data for the month, I immediately set out to find a way to monitor and control my data usage.

I tried multiple apps, but none came close to the simplicity, beauty, and excellent control that TripMode offers. It was a near instant buy. You can create custom profiles and allow only the apps you want to be able to send and receive daa.

Future updates I'd love to see incude the ability to hook in to the current focus mode as well as enabling automation support (Shortcuts, Keyboard Maestro, Better Touch Tool, Raycast, etc.).

Absolute gamechanger

Great for travelers or even users living in countries with expensive or limited data plans. I've relied on this app so much in the last year while traveling or tethering to my phone. There's quite a bit of customization available as well, such as auto-scheduling TripMode to turn on/off, notifications, how to view data consumption, etc. It's pefect for my needs and it's probably perfect for yours as well.
