Though the Indian smartphone market has witnessed robust growth over the years but there still lacks a gap for the data-rich applications to fair well because of the underdeveloped mobile infrastructure. Most smartphone users in India suffer from weak network connectivity thereby hampering a seamless usage of data through apps.
Here’s presenting a list of some interesting apps that you can use even with low or no data connectivity, best suited for phones plagued by data issues and memory limits.
1. Amazon Kindle
The Kindle app puts millions of books at your fingertips. It’s the app for every reader. It allows you to read ebooks you've purchased via the Kindle store on any device without installing a separate app to do it, regardless of whether you have an active internet connection.
If you like to read your news on the go and get stuck too often due to inconsistent data, Inshorts is the perfect solution. Inshorts creates a feed of news summaries (of less than 60 words) which can be accessed even without data connectivity. The moment you get access to the Internet, the app automatically refreshes and pulls latest news summaries which remain on the app despite further non-availability of data.
Tripadvisor lets travelers download reviews, photos and city maps before they set out on their trip, so they can then access the information on-the-go even without internet connection. There are 300 cities available for this offline feature at the launch, with TripAdvisor promising that there will be more to come very soon.
With Spotify you can listen to the right music, wherever you are. It gives you access to a world of music without any interruptions of ads, but the best part is the offline access you can enjoy for the app. You can listen to the music even while you are offline.
