    More control over your data usage is never a bad thing, IMHO

    Oh absolutely. But why put a third party in the middle of the information stream? What I've found is that the most direct route is usually the best. So I use my carrier's own app which is directly on my phone.

    By the way AT&T has the option to cap services right on their app. I can't post that because it's got my info. But it's there.

    I should add you can search it, it's called Smart Limits.

    Verizon has some services that will alert you about data that I use and love but their service that is supposed to limit data once a user meets a preset threshold is week at best on a family share data block. It seems to spend more time being confused about wether a 2gig cap per line is per line or for all devices. Sadly I've never been able to get the service to work properly. 5 iPads and 4 iPhone on shared 30 gigabytes is barely manageable all by my lonesome.

    I wonder if iOS 8 will allow widgets on the notification screen like below to show current data usage:

    See that looks too busy for me. I like a clean home screen.
    I would take that, though, as the second page.

    That's actually my second page to the right. I, like you, prefer an uncluttered home screen:
