Best Android Lite App That Will Serve You Well In Bad Network Area
Bad network connection is notorious for striking at just the wrong moment. Just in case you're in a poor network vicinity and you need to access the NET, the below lists on lite app will serve you well.
1. Google Go
Google Go is a lightweight version of the Google app we’re all familiar with on Android. This app weighs 5MB and is designed help you navigate the web when you’re particularly low on bandwidth.
Google Go shows you trending topics and helps you discover the things you want. There’s a fast voice search feature built-in (which doesn’t require a fast LTE connection to work). The app is designed to help you out every step of the way.
Datally is Google’s own take on data tracking and management. The app feature’s Google’s signature sleek design mixed with artificial intelligence smarts. Using the app, you can monitor your data usage, block apps and services that are using too much data, and visually track your data usage over time. The app will also surface nearby Wi-Fi networks.
As you use the app for a couple of days, Datally will start surfacing personalized recommendations. The app will tell you which rogue app you should disable data access to, ask you to rate your experience at a public Wi-Fi network, and so on.
3. Opera Max
Opera Max is a free VPN service designed specifically to reduce your data consumption. Once enabled, Opera Max works on the operating system level.
Any traffic that’s not encrypted will go through Opera’s servers and run through its compression algorithms before making its way to your device. This means you don’t need to go looking for a special data saving mode in each and every app. Just turn on Opera Max, and you’ll end up saving 30 to 50 percent of your data (depending on the apps you use).
4. Facebook Lite
The Facebook Lite Android app is a more sophisticated version of Facebook’s mobile website. Here, you’ll get almost all the basic functionality you expect from Facebook’s main app (exceptions being things like live streaming, group management features, page management, and so on). You’ll be able to view all the notifications and chat right inside the Facebook lite app.
As the name suggests, Facebook Lite is meant to be light on your device’s resources and your bandwidth.
5. Messenger Lite
Facebook Engineers have themselves admitted that Messenger has turned into a bloated app . Messenger Lite is a great alternative to use even if you’re not on a bad network. The experience is just much better. There are no ads, no promotions, no stories, and no tricks to make you interact with a chatbot . It’s just you and your chats. The way it’s meant to be.
You’ll still be able to send photos to chats but Messenger’s plugins for GIFs and stickers won’t work.
6. Skype Lite
Skype Lite is only available in India, but you can use it anywhere in the world by
sideloading the APK. Skype Lite was specifically designed to work on a slow network.
Even if you’re only getting 2G speeds, you’ll still be able to make audio calls using the app. The data consumption with video calls is also greatly reduced.
NOTE: The above listed apps can be downloaded for free on Google PlayStore by searching through the file name.
