At a launch yesterday, July 21, Globe Telecom announced exciting news for all of the Prepaid users in the country! The Switch App!
Er, I’m not the best person to ask because, first of all, I’m not a Prepaid user, LOL, and second of all, I’m not the most digitally/technically savvy but I’ll do my best to explain to you guys what you can do with the Globe Switch App. 🙂
Basically? It helps you manage your data usage and the apps that utilize your mobile data allocation, EVEN IF YOU’RE A PREPAID USER. You’ll also have access to a plethora of app deals that you can only get within the app. ALL this with just ONE FLICK OF A SWITCH!
This all in-one-app solution gives Globe Prepaid/TM customers affordable access to the hottest apps and lets them discover the best online deals. In addition to the exclusive mobile offers, Globe Switch sets itself apart with its data management and usage tracking capabilities.
Globe Switch is designed with three main functions: OFFERS, CONTROL and USAGE. Under Offers are the best app deals that are only exclusive within Globe Switch. These deals are ready for download, ideal for those new to navigating online and using mobile data. Users can freely try and purchase these deals at a more affordable price. Globe Switch is your gateway to more than 3 GB worth of access to over 50 of the most popular apps. Purchases are conveniently charged to ones prepaid load, while some apps are permanently FREE to explore.
With the Control feature, users are given a way to properly regulate which applications consume data charges. Certain apps can be turned on or off, preventing unexpected data consumption from some apps that are rarely used. The Usage feature gives visibility into how much mobile data and WIFI each app is consuming on an hourly, daily and 12-day basis, alongside a data saving mode. Also, upon opening an app that consumes data, Globe Switch will automatically notify the customer on how long they want to use the app and consume data.
The best part of this all is that starting its launch date, JULY 21, Globe is giving half a million (that’s 500,000) first subscribers free 5 days access to the app of your choice! You can avail of this treat by going into the OFFERS tab in the app. 🙂
Currently, their lineup of available apps on Globe Switch App includes Skype, Grab, Waze, Clash Royale, Clash of Clans, Candy Crush, Musical.ly, Smule, Spotify, Zalora, Lazada, Pinterest, Instagram, and Snapchat, among others.
Unfortunately, the app is currently only available on Google Play or Android OS, so, well, I guess iOS users have to wait a little longer. Buu.
