Android-based gadgets are becoming more and more popular, and are gaining on Apple’s gadgets each and every day. With the lightning-fast mobile internet connection many people have today, it is very easy to use your Android-based device and spend hours and hours online, browsing the World Wide Web, chatting with your friends on Facebook, or even doing some business over the Internet. However, most people have the same problem when it comes to browsing the Internet, as it always seems that whichever data plan they have is not enough. Well, there is a way to manage data on your Android-based device, and you should think about doing this.
Why You Should Manage Data Consumption with Your Android Device
In this day and age, people are always trying to find new ways of saving money. On the other hand, today many people are also reliant on a good and stabile Internet connection, as many of them spend most of their free time online. When the fact that most people today have mobile phones and other similar gadgets is added to the aforementioned statements, it is easy to understand that controlling how much you spend while on the Internet is of great importance.
The Idea behind Data Counting Apps for Android
The whole idea behind these apps is based on the fact that many people go over their data plans without even knowing it, thus they unwillingly and unnecessarily spend a lot of money on paying overage charges each and every month. Even though these data plans are most commonly affordable, if you go over the limit, you will certainly feel the impact of this on your next monthly bill. So, with data counters, you will finally be able to relax and enjoy the World Wide Web without constantly thinking about the extra charges you will have to pay. Namely, if it happens that you reach your limit, the app will simply alert you and you will be able to do something about it, rather than keep on surfing all until you spend more money than you would really be willing to pay.
The Drawback of Data Managers for Android
Yes, these data managers are great for letting you know when you are going to reach your limit, as well as telling you where your megabytes have gone, but they still lack a very useful feature. This feature is all about letting you have more for the price of less. As iPhone users already know, Apple has a very practical data manager that not only counts megabytes, but it also compresses mobile data. What this means is that this app maximizes your data usage, allowing you to spend more time on the Web for the same amount of money. This is something that data counting apps for Android-based devices still lack. However, this very practical feature is reported to be coming very soon to the Android platform. If this really happens, then data managers for Android will indeed be as good as the one for the iPhone.
