Data Efficient Apps

gigaom.gifI came across a blog post today that attempts to explain why Android smartphones consume more data. While the answers are speculative, the reasoning seems to make sense.

For (Android) developers this probably means that we should start thinking more about how much data an app consumes. With more restricted (capped) network operator data tariffs, it’s probably only a matter of time before end users start wondering and learning how much data each app uses and selecting apps that are more data efficient.
