Rogers My Account for Android has received a nice update today, bringing support for Android 4.2+ Jelly Bean devices and high-resolution screens.

While the app is still ugly as heck, all the assets have been updated to HDPI, so at least they’re not ugly and blurry any longer. For anyone with a Rogers smartphone looking to check up on voice, messaging and data usage, as well as set forwarding numbers for text messages, My Account is a very useful app.

The new version also dramatically improves performance and response times, so you’re no longer going to wait minutes to see how many megabytes you’ve used, or what your monthly balance is.

Download Rogers My Account for Android. The app is also available on BlackBerry 10, Windows Phone and iOS.

    Why can’t bell do something like this, they basically just copied the iphone app and pasted it to android

    FYI, the Fido My Account for Android has been updated with the same changelog. As you surely know, it’s the same app as the Rogers version with different colours/images.

    hey can i port this to my blackberry z10?

    we dont have these kind of apps

    • Chris

      Rogers released this app for BB10 and it’s far better looking and can do more than the Android version. It appears to be natively coded for BB10 with the pull-over menu to access more options. Hard to believe but I actually think Rogers did a good job on the BB app. I’m hoping they release a version of the PVR app next because that one on Android is decent.

    It would be nice if we could also view our Internet and cable bills with the app too.

    And view our Internet usage

    Glad I was not the only one who found the old app slow as hell

  • Tom

    Why does this need permission to read my contacts?

    • Tim

      It can fill MY10/MY5 boxes by pulling from contacts.

    I wish they would update the iOS app to fit the iPhone 5 display properly.

    The problem with this app is that it didn’t work without a data connection. When I’m roaming, too bad can’t check it. I have to go use their equally ****** website.

    or if it ever worked–ever. I enabled it briefly to try this update and surprise surprise still “technical difficulties” and the website doesn’t accept my password. It’s bad enough that you can’t get rid of the app and are forced to use data but it has never worked or given me any information. I’d like to disable every connection from this phone to Rogers if I could

    also has Rogers even started updating its phones to 4.2? The Note II just got 4.1.2 hardly a week ago

    F u c k you to any one of you ignorant a s s holes giving Rogers money each month. Go k i l l yourselves.

    There shouldn’t be the need for an app but thanks to total i d i o t s they are still in business.

    Rogers customers are usually f a t dis gusting d i p s h i t s.

      @ Pin, you probably live in your moms basement and use your moms phone to make calls. For all of us who have jobs and need to go places we cant afford to be on crappy WIND network.

      Tell your mom i said hi

    Looks like Daniel is back using Note 2 again! He did write an article about wanting to try the new multitask feature of Note 2. :-)
