Globe Switch App Review – Free Mobile Data Access

Happy Weekend! This is the Part 2 of the three mobile apps that I’ll be reviewing which will give you free data access when you run out of load or wi-fi connection, tight on budget or just like to save those extra coins – Globe Switch.

Everyone loves free items – free taste, free ride, free text. No wonder in the digital world, the mobile apps getting the highest number of downloads are the ones that can be used for free. Why pay if you can get the same service at no cost, right?

Free

Background:

Telco duo-poly continues on the battle to have a greater hold on prepaid subscribers who would like to get better value from the services that Globe and Smart provide – as it’s a great vehicle for these two telcos to offer top-up products once the mobile app/site free data allocation was used up.

This competition took a foothold when Free Basics from Facebook started offering free access to various sites. I previously posted a review about Free Basics here.

My Life-Switching Experience:

Features:

Convenience

  • I find Globe Switch app extremely useful on times that my pocket-wifi is low on battery, as I prefer to use pocket wi-fi over data as the latter drains the phone’s battery quickly.
  • It’s reliable to use when travelling when my pocket-wifi can’t detect a good network connection.
  • When I go to malls, Ayala Malls, particularly or public areas like MRT – where free internet access is provided (through GoWifi, or any free wifi provider), there’s times that the network connection is unreliable or unstable. It’s to these places.
  • When my prepaid wifi internet promo subscription suddenly expires, I use this app to get free data access so I can reload, check urgent e-mails or fb messages or make urgent bank transactions or transfers.

  • A chart/report showing your data usage is also available.

Free Daily Spins

  • You can also get spins by purchasing items on their online stores – rewards are typically free data access as well on specific apps.

Cons:

  • Only available for Globe/TM Subscribers
  • Connection speed not as reliable as pocket-wifi
  • Drains device’s battery upon prolonged use
  • Frequent prompts for you to subscribe to a prepaid promo – well it’s how they earn from this service
  • The app can only be used when the sim card containing the phone number used to register on the Switch app and the app itself are on the same device – normally a feat of Globe apps – that the app and the sim card are on sync

I tried to find an introductory video about Globe Switch it’s not available yet. However, you can subscribe to Globe PH channel here.

This is another straightforward app that their description and features can easily be found on Google Play but I hope you liked my post. Please follow and leave your comments if you like blog content or have any comments!

Expect changes to come on this site. Hopefully I will be able to have giveaways (like AIRDROPs I guess?) on this site too! Stay tuned for updates!
