Is data-usage taking a toll on your mobile bills? Are you wary of the overage charges which your data operator might levy on you?
Well, to counter combat your woes, Devicescape- the company which is world leader in Wi-Fi offload services has launched an Android app- DataSaver. As the name suggests, DataSaver helps you downscale data consumption by automatically finding and using nearby Wi-Fi networks. According to Devicescape, there are over 8 million Wi-Fi hotspots over the world, most of which provide free internet access.
Though most people are tuned to their Wi-Fi connections at home for uninterrupted data usage, there is no option other than packet data when one is mobile. However, DataSaver automatically detects Public Wi-Fi connections and connects to them. Apart from certain retail locations, we all know how complex it is to connect to public Wi-Fi.
According to Jean-Marc Matteini, GM of Consumer for Devicescape, “The app is fully autonomous, and given the tremendous size of the Devicescape Network, Android users would now be able to chop off their cellular data consumption more than 30% “.
DataSaver mainly caters two vivid functionalities. The connection manager helps you connect to 8 million Wi-Fi hotspots on Devicescape network without the need to login. This provides a hassle-free Wi-Fi experience. Data Manager informs users about their current data performance and shows a graph of Wi-Fi versus 3G/4G usage.
It also informs users when they are nearing their data plan limit and provides some subtle tips to improve their data savings. The user-interface of the app is a huge plus as it is extremely intuitive, easy and very eye-catchy.
The only bottom-line of this app would be the need to have your Wi-Fi continuously on which might eventually drain the battery off rapidly enough. However, it is all about striking a cordial balance between battery and data usage. One needs to be foreseen for another.
This app is available for FREE download on PlayStore and you can download it here.
