Globe yesterday (21st July) launched an app specifically for their Prepaid subscribers! Switch is a combined data management and tracking tool which has the added facility of actually activating offers that allow data intensive applications better flexibility and access.
The app interface is cleverly categorized into three tabs: Offers, Usage and Control very easy to navigate around and get the best out of a subscribers mobile data… and it works for other networks too (sans the offers).
The first tab (Offers) houses all the hottest content in the form of apps, it even lets you install the particular app if you don’t have it in your device yet. Probably the best feature of the Globe Switch App is it allows free network usage for around 50 apps so you can actually test them out prior to purchasing data for them (a combined total of 3GBs for all of them we’re told).
Tab two (Usage) displays how much traffic is being utilized by each individual app providing insight as to how much data goes where, and when you find an offending app, you can go over to tab three (Control) and actually stop it from getting access to precious bytes of data.
The introduction of this app is actually very timely with the impending release of Pokemon Go, one of the heaviest data hoggers if there ever was one… It was announced during the launch that Switch users would have an exclusive 7-day free data for the game on release day so make sure you have it on your phone by then. Also, the first 500 thousand subscribers will be given 500MB free for their app of choice! A truly wonderful treat overall from Globe for early adopters.
Head on past the break to learn more about this exciting offering from Globe.
