A new series of App reviews will help you use technology to enhance your holiday in Valencia.
We start with Onavo – an app to help you keep an eye on data roaming charges for your mobile phone.
We looked at Onavo for iPhone (also available for Android). It aims to give you ‘up to five times more’ from a 3 or 4G data plan without changing the way you use your phone. Downloading emails and sharing photos while abroad is made more economical using Onavo extend.
The free app helps you stay within your roaming plan by compressing all the data you download. It also supplies reports to show you how you are using your data, so you can easily adjust and cut back your mobile spending.
By tweaking the controls, you can decide whether you want to sacrifice image quality or the amount of data you can use.
Mobile phone suppliers do send texts to inform you of your charges when you land in a different country but this is a more sure-fire way of keeping tabs on what you spend on your mobile while you are on holiday.
