The internet is not just for computers anymore. It has become an inseparable function of tablets or smartphones and if you want to keep up with continually evolving technology and get the most out of your device, applications are a must. With a single touch, apps allow easy access to the online world and the information you need the most. Apps can be easily adapted to suit your individual needs, and getting the most out of your apps requires no expert knowledge. By simply taking a trip into the world of apps, you can see for yourself just how easy – and fun - they can make your life. Moreover, good-quality coverage and availability of mobile networks currently enables you to connect to the internet from virtually anywhere in the world.
Most smartphones contain an icon in the basic menu that takes you directly to an online application shop, where you can find a list of the most popular apps to help you get oriented. Google Play is an app shop for the Android operation system, where thousands of apps can be found, while Apple brand mobile devices use Appstore, and Marketplace opens the doors to the world of apps for users of the Windows Phone operation system.
Today, there is scarcely a function that apps could not provide. For example, when on a business trip or vacation, apps can help you find a hotel according to your specific pre-set criteria, or select the best route. You can also demonstrate your cooking skills thanks to one of hundreds of culinary apps. Specialised apps also allow you to stay on top of the daily news and weather forecasts, provide access to social networks and enable you to pay bills and purchase transport tickets and parking with comfort and ease.
With its comprehensive nature and ease of use, your smartphone should not be without the Orange GO app. Orange introduced the app to users in mid-2012 and it became an immediate hit - as many as 100,000 people have downloaded it. The app is simple, free of charge and offers many useful functions. It was conceived as a crossroads in the world of internet on a mobile phone. Orange GO provides within seconds information about your telecommunication services consumption, access to activation of services, chat options and more useful services.
Having both a smartphone and a tablet is becoming the 21st century standard
When accessing the internet on a mobile device, we’re not just limited to smartphones: today, tablets are becoming increasingly popular and have gradually found their way onto our market, becoming a common item in Slovak households. Some of the more daring predictions claim that they might even completely replace notebooks and desktop computers. Already last year, the sales of these devices outnumbered the sales of notebooks in the US and in China. In Slovakia, one table was sold for every two notebooks.
Tablets, of course, have many advantages. Compared to notebooks, they are more portable and handier for everyday use, both inside and outside the office. Compared to mobile phones, tablets have the advantage of a bigger display. On a tablet, for example, you can watch television in HD resolution. Tablets are not difficult to acquire. For example, at Orange, you can lease both a phone as well as a tablet. Thus, when buying them together with a pre-paid flat payment for data, you can pay only a portion of the subsidised price of the tablet and mobile data device, then divide the rest into 12 or 18-month instalments without paying any extra fees.
For those with a desire to be free of limitations, and who want to be in constant contact with friends or to be able to do their work from anywhere, Orange has a special combined offer of a tablet and a smartphone, starting at €1. Thanks to the biggest and fastest Orange 3G network, as well as a wide selection of devices to choose from, communicating and accessing your information will be made that much easier.
Good-quality internet is a must for the home
In the comfort of your home, you will undoubtedly appreciate a stable internet connection, helping to make both entertainment and work a more pleasant experience. With Orange, you can choose from the Internet for Home offer, or – if you are covered by an optic network – FiberNet would make a good companion. Thus, you can currently surf without limitations at speeds that would satisfy even the most demanding users.
