March for Women's day, Saving your data and Big Up of the day
International Women's Day 2017
Wednesday, March 8 was celebrated as International Women's Day with the theme "Be Bold for Change" being highlighted in full swing. Various marches were planned throughout the island to protest against the wave of violence carried out against our women and children. The Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment, and Sport partnered with the AIDS Healthcare in order to host a march and concert at the Emancipation Park which seemed fitting as to highlight the significance of the event. Though the rain threatened to derail the day's planned activities, the turnout was better than expected and even had the Prime Minister, Andrew Holness turn out. Here are some highlights from the event:
Saving your data
Digicel and FLOW both been moving SHADY with their data plans so here my little contribution to help y'all out: two apps that help you save money and gives you evidence of your data use. The first app is Opera Max and it stops certain apps from using your data unless you want them to. It also optimizes your incoming videos and images so they still look good but don't take up as much space. The second app is GlassWire, this app shows you what app is using your data, the time it used it and how much data it has used. It is also customizable in that you can set the data plan you have active and remind you when your data has finished/expired. Links are below. Share to help a friend. Also you may go into your settings and turn off auto update of apps as this drains your data by A LOT, it is much better to set your device to update over wifi as this will save you a lot on data.
*Sorry iPhone users, Android users get all the love today.
