View current usage
Get a quick look at your iPool's usage in the current month. iPool shows you the amount of traffic to date and the number of MP3 downloads with watermarks in the current month. Along with that you will also see an estimate of the traffic and MP3 downloads with watermarks for the month as a whole. You can also monitor how much storage space your iPool as a whole is using.
