Only on phones, not computers.

Hi MyLot. I haven't posted as much as I usually would because something has been taking up my time. Namely - a new phone! It's been a long time since I've gotten a nicer phone. The one I had been using was technically speaking a smartphone, but it was so underpowered that it couldn't run a lot of apps. Including some of the factory installed ones that I had to remove to make more room. Enter my new Nokia 2. It seems to be middle of the road phone. To me, it's a huge leap forward. I can actually use navigation now (one of the things I had to remove on the old phone) and I can have apps. I admit I'm confused though. Are there any techy types on here that know why so many aps don't have a version to run on an actual computer? To a large degree I still enjoy doing computer stuff on an actual computer. I would rather use my computer than my phone but for certain things, but I can't, because the app won't run on a computer. Anyway, it makes no sense to me, since (generally speaking) computers have far more memory and space than a lot of phones. Also, as a side note, the only thing that I'm unsatisfied with in this phone - is the call quality. Ha. Figures. A phone that is a better computer, than a phone. Photo: Pixabay

My phone isn't smart, and in order to not run out of data, of which I have very limited, I needed to install an app @DaddyEvil told me to download so it would save my data. So, I can't help you. You might ask DE about it. He's the only tech wizard I know on myLot.

@just4him @FayeHazel I know why Valerie doesn't have much data, Faye, but may I ask why you don't? I only use 1/2 of a GB through the towers, but I do use between 7 and 8 GBs through my home Wi-Fi. (I read a LOT of books on my phone.) Maybe it is the provider you use that restricts your data? Since I use so little through the towers, I use a company called Total Wireless. (It is a cheaper sister company to Straight Talk.) BTW, I found out there is another phone geek on myLot. (Actually, there are several of us.) You might see what @nitirrbb7 has to say when you are looking for phone help. He is the one I turn to when I have a problem or just want to talk to another phone geek. (grinning)
