Google bans lockscreen ads: Here is how you can report them

Google finally bans apps that include shady lock screen ads from the Play Store Google Will Now Ban Apps from the Play Store That Serve Shady Lockscreen Ads

App developers are pushing the envelope on a daily basis trying to improve and enhance our smartphone and tablet experiences.

Further, the app will also provide the means to control your data usage in precisely the manner you would like it to be.

"They face some challenges such as; huge percentage of people who use low earned phones, connectivity and localised content which forces them to either use airplane mode, rationing, or tethering to save data".

Once the Data Saver is turned on, the Datally's Data Saver Bubble which serves like a speedometer will appear when a user goes into an application in which it will show the running data usage of the certain app. These processes are mainly handled by apps that are installed and accessed by different built-in services like Calendar, Camera, Contacts, etc. Switching on Data Saver blocks background data and lets users fully control which apps use data. You can select the time period (today, this week, this month) and you can also see a list of apps that have recently used your mobile data.

Medical supplies, United Nations aid workers reach Yemen after blockade eased
The three-year civil war continues to rage in Yemen, where 10,000 have died and around 3 million people have been displaced. Saudi and US officials have said that the missile fired by the Houthis was manufactured in Iran.

"Unless the exclusive goal of the app is that of a lock screen, apps may not introduce ads or features that monetize the locked display of a device", Google explains.

Here are the other facts you have to know about Datally. Named Datally, the app is aimed at optimizing our data resources by providing a detailed viewpoint of how our data is getting utilized, which includes details as to which app is consuming how much data, when is it being consumed the most and so on.

Datally is only a data management app, unlike the now discontinued Opera Max app, which saved data consumption by compressing apps and webpages.

Tests of the app in the Philippines had shown that Datally could help save users up to 30 per cent on their data, Google said. The controls placed on the front and center will help you to view real-time app data usage. Since I was connected to my office Wi-Fi, I ended up saving around 21% mobile data. Once enabled Data Saver option, Datally will request you to allow connection since it requires a VPN (Virtual private network) to block data. If you see a public Wi-Fi spot, you can select it and it will give you directions via Google Maps. In light of these problems, Google yesterday announced an app called Datally. The app was released worldwide on November 29, and it will run on devices with Android 5.0 and above.
