Which Smartphone Apps are the Biggest Data Hogs?

Movie Streaming
Netflix streaming used more data than YouTube in our tests.Among the app categories we tested, movie streaming apps chomped up the most data. Consider those YouTube videos you watch on your commute: Viewing for just ten minutes a day can have you pushing a 1GB limit in well under a month. And high-definition videos take up double the amount of data that standard definition videos do.

But YouTube videos aren’t the biggest data hog. Netflix streaming uses more. Data consumption on Netflix varies, because video quality adjusts constantly depending on your connection. In our tests using Verizon’s fast LTE network, 10 minutes of viewing used up between 100 and 200MB. So streaming just two 2-hour films can all but max out a 5GB-per-month data plan.


Which classes of apps eat the most data? Which single apps in each category are the least data-efficient? We tested various popular Android apps to find out.

Are you aware of how much data your smartphone’s apps are using up? Android phones are averaging about 583 megabytes (MB) of data usage monthly, according to 2011 stats from Nielson.

Some apps are far worse than others when it comes to data usage, and it’s important to know which ones are the hogs, especially for those on limited or low-end data plans.

And limited or capped data plans appear to be the wave of the future. For instance, AT&T offers tiered plans ranging from 300MB to 3 gigabytes (GB) per month. When you exceed your monthly allotment of data, your carrier either throttles down your speed or hits you with expensive overage charges.

We tested the data usage of popular apps in six different categories to find out which are easiest and hardest on data. If one of your go-to apps is a data hog, you may be able to find a similar app that does the same things but uses less data.

We tested the apps using a Droid Razr phone running on Verizon’s 4G LTE network, and used theMy Data Manager and Onavo apps to measure the data being used. Leer más “Which Smartphone Apps are the Biggest Data Hogs?”

Aún así, el iPad no fue el único gran tema de la semana. Estas han sido las noticias más leídas de los últimos días y los temas que no habría que dejar escapar para estar al día llegado el domingo.

The new guidelines will complement the group’s existing Global Code of Conduct, and will attempt to address the growing need for marketers and consumers to have a “transparent, accepted understanding,” in its words, as to how information on a mobile device is collected and what’s being done with it.

Wallpaper: Full Moon

Halloween: A night of terror celebrated worldwide.

For many, it is also a night to let loose and explore their personal creativity. This creative energy fuels some unbelievable costumes, amazing parties, and usually some pretty unique libations to go with.

Almost everyone has something that scares the living crap out of them. One of my fears happens to be being lost in an ominous forest teaming with unknown creatures and… maybe even worse… undead MySpace pages!

This fear is what inspired me to create this “spook-tacular” Halloween wallpaper. [Más…]

It depicts a night filled with fear and mystery. Bats fly; blood in their eyes, hungry for more. The underbrush is almost alive as it stretches out along the forest floor, slowly engulfing everything around it. The moon seems to grow brighter as the night grows longer, playing a game of cat and mouse with the ghostly clouds that loom ominously above. Without warning, the moon disappears, leaving you vulnerable, surrounded by darkness and an abrupt silence— “What the hell just touched me!?”

As you poke your head through the nearby brush you see nothing but mountains and a lone castle. You wonder who or what’s inside…is that a scream? The fear overwhelms you; your legs cease to move any further. Sweat beads across your fevered brow and your shaking is only making those lurking creatures more and more curious.

As the snarls, growls, and devilish chuckles inch ever closer, you panic, scrambling towards the castle. As you approach, you glance back, revealing a slew of blood shot eyes eager to pounce. Frantically, you bang on the castle doors for any sign of help, but no one’s there. Soon you feel the hot moisture of breath on the back of your neck, the slowly curling stench of death wafting from behind you. As you turn around, you suddenly black out… minutes later you find yourself in your room trembling with this story written in front of you…only to realize it was just “AN idea”…… Muhahahaahaahahahaahaa.
