Whether you undertake a daily commute, you want to save money on data, or you don’t want to get hit with data roaming charges while overseas, managing data usage seems to be a common problem, but did you know:
There is a number of apps that don’t use data.
We were as surprised too! Here are some of the best apps that don’t use data:
If you are on the go with no access to Wi-Fi, but still want to keep in touch with friends, you can do just that with the FireChat app. This app is compatible with the iPhone and iPad, and it allows you to send instant messages and pictures to friends, provided they also have the app. It can be used wherever you might be, including public transportation for your commute to work.
Google Play Music
Google Play Music allows people with Android and iOS to access up to 35 million songs for a monthly fee. However, if you want to listen to music as you go about your day without using up valuable data, there is the option to listen to any of the favorite tracks you’ve downloaded while you are offline as well.
Available on iTunes and Google Play, Pocket allows you to download the news stories and articles that are of interest so you can read them later, without the need to access Wi-Fi. It’s ideal for catching up with the latest news whether you are on your morning commute, or on a long flight. You also have the option to download videos as well.
If you are looking for apps to keep a child occupied on a long journey, or need something to pass away the time as you travel, there are a number of gaming apps that don’t use data. Angry Birds is one of the most popular among children and adults alike, and it doesn’t require any Wi-Fi access.
If you upgrade to the premium version, you can access anything you download to Evernote without Wi-Fi. However, you’ll need to download the information you need while you do have Internet access in order to read your notes on the go.
