Verizon Rates Apps For Overall Experience

Most of the time people who own smartphones just download any app that they see as interesting over at Google Play without even knowing what it does on your device. While most of the apps are great some are just power hogs that can drain your battery faster than the normal rate. The most dangerous apps are the ones that can pose a serious security risk to your device.

Verizon Rates Apps For Overall Experience

Getting information on what apps are good to install and what aren’t is pretty hard to come by but thanks to Verizon’s latest app rankings you will get information on how each app can affect your smartphone.

App Reviews by Verizon concentrates on three important factors namely security, battery consumption, and data usage. The company gets the most popular paid and free apps over at Google Play based on their rankings for a 30 day period. Each of the selected apps are then reviewed and given a rating. A low rating means that the app will have a negative overall effect on your device while a high rating means that it is relatively safe to install.

Although the list is recommended for Verizon subscribers it can also be used by people from other networks looking for information on how an app affects the performance of a device.
