Bloated and "Internet connection required" app
I am not sure if someone covered this before.
A lot of the apps I download requires Internet connection to used. To me it is a huge problem as I do not have access to the net all the time (traveling on public transport). I understand they might need it for data updates, etc. Why can't they programmer it in a way to upload the data when I next have wifi access. Without wifi/net the app refused to launched - even for games.
The the problem I have is the insane amount of file size and meaningless empty apps we have to download in order to "download" some more. Wired magazine is a very good example. You have to download a large application. Then in order to view it's first free magazine. It's another few hundred megabytes. Same with a lot of "free" magazine. I know it's subscription based. But I think they should start to rethink how they want to do it.
The free magazine apps are basically useless shell for one to buy the subscriptions. I would rather they not used the word free app. As there is nothing free about it.
And have app that needs wifi connection made know in the app store before I download.saves me time downloading things I cannot use or read.
I hope developers keep in mind before developing apps.
