    "WhatsApp is my go to messaging app when I need to talk to my friends. It was very easy to adjust the settings to keep my data usage low when I needed. If you need a free messaging app then you won't find a better alternative than WhatsApp."

    "Using as little data possible while on Cell Towers is very important to me as I'm on a data limted plan of only 3GB per month. Opera Mini helps accomplish this with it's built in ad blocker so youre not downloading extra things you never wanted to see in the first place. It also has a built in data tracker just in case you want to check how much you've used while in the app, which can be handy. With tabs, private browsing, and many other top features like the big guys, this app/browser looks like a great download for Android users!"

    "Because my provider increased the cost of bandwidth use, I needed to find a leaner chat app. I thought Nimbuzz might be the solution, so I installed it from the Apple store, but couldn't get it to run. Trying to go to their page just gave me a 404 error! What junk!"
