Free Apps Abroad

Free Apps Abroad

PostPosted by Cleoriff » Thu Jul 31, 2014 12:26 am

Adsgirl was going to post this but asked me to do it on her behalf...

As you know we have Wifi in this apartment in Spain...and have been absolutely amazed at the amount of apps she has been able to use, free of charge to keep in touch with various family members back in the UK on a variety of networks..

*Whatsapp...sending pictures, voice messages and texts (to family on Vodaphone, O2, Orange and EE)
*Snapchat: ...Sending pictures and texts and face to face video calls (to the same people as shown above)
* Facebook Messenger.....to send pictures and texts...

*Film On:
Added to the above free apps, using my HP Slate, we found a FREE programme called Film On...
This enables you to watch ALL Freeview channels available in the UK (even Channel 5 which has not been available for about 4 years on the Costa Del Sol)
For info...in February of this year some parts of Spain lost all British TV channels, and though we have had some return (dependent on your area) channel availability is very limited (unless you invest in Digiboxes/WiFi TV...and have expensive equipment installed)
As well as showing a variety of TV channels, we can, if we wish, watch a number of films using this Film On programme...

There may be many of you that know this already... but for us it has been a real revelation.

Remember... we brought with 3 Android phones. S3, S4 and S3 mini. A laptop, a netbook and an HP Slate.
Always used Wifi....but it is the free Apps that are the point of this post.

As I say they have helped us all immensely. I know this is all down to us having Wifi here (and where we eat and drink) but we were all unsure of how well they would work and were expecting NOT to be able to use our phones much. :lol
The Slate has really come into its own with the Film On programme.
Adsgirl loves Big Brother :roll: (I know)... but she has been able to sit on the balcony when we get back here and watch it
by pressing record and it downloads that nights episode onto my Slate...

So a massive learning curve for all of us. :dance
