Data management is one of the most important and complicated things in our daily life.Imagine you are on the go and on a limited wifi or mobile data connection, so you have to make the best out of it.Whether you are at home or at the office, having a minimal amount of data is a necessity.

So here rather than talking about browsers, we will have a detailed discussion about four featured and effective apps to cut down your monthly data usage.
