These Lite versions of apps to help you save data!

Published on May 15, 2017

Social media and the internet is a place with constant updates. You can miss out on a lot if you’re low on data. Luckily here are three Lite versions of your favorite social apps to help keep you updated.

Facebook Lite

Facebook is great because it offers so many ways of keeping track of your account. A popular one is Facebook Lite.. It is a separate downloaded app which is much smaller than the main Facebook app, so its good if you also want to save up on memory space.The FB Lite sample (left) versus the FB (right) shows a simpler interface and larger font. It also doesn’t auto-play videos, only playing them when you tap on it.

YouTube Go

YouTube Go hasn’t been released yet but it’s looking to be a great extension to YouTube. It most likely will be a separate app that’s smaller than the current YouTube app. Currently, there is no release date for it but it remains to be widely anticipated. Why? It’s because the app lets you manage your data usage while still being able to watch quality videos. You can get notifications from your favorite channels and even download your favorite videos! The highlight feature is that you can adjust the quality of videos you watch and upload so you can decide how much data you will use for each one, and even offers offline viewing.

Twitter Lite

Twitter Lite just rolled out and unlike the other 2 separate apps you don’t need to download anything. This one works on your mobile web browser from mobile.twitter.com. Loading the page uses only 1MB and you can go into more data saving with the data saver mode that doesn’t load images unless you press “view photo.”
