Sprint App Pass

Haven't see much discussion on this yet, seems like it could use a thread.

 

http://www.androidpolice.com/2014/08/19/sprint-app-pass-is-an-all-you-can-download-subscription-app-store-launching-august-29th-and-priced-at-5-per-month/

 

From the article, not sure how well this would work since it appears to be a separate app store entirely from the play store and amazon market.

 

Now if google or amazon directly supported something like that, I would be more inclined to check it out.

It looks interesting but it's not something I would ever get into. I already own most of the apps I need or want, it might be of some use to some one that is just switching to Android though. It all really depends what kind of stuff they have in there if it's worth it or not. It's interesting in the screenshot from that page it looks like the phone is roaming. I used to get that little triangle on my older phones any time I roamed.

I use the same apps over and over.  I rarely try out new apps.  I maybe download one new app a month.  And then end up deleting about half of them.

 

I guess I'm an old fuddy duddy and don't see the allure of this.

Well over the long term, its probably not worth it.. unless you buy/use more than $60 worth of apps per year.

 

In the short term, it allows you to try out a lot of paid apps without commitment.

 

Kind of like renting console video games (or netflix dvds).

 

Some games you know you want to buy so you just buy them outright.

 

Other games, you pay a few bucks to try out for a limited time, then decide if you want to purchase or send it back.

    • Went to Rolling Loud NYC at Citi Field this weekend. Over 60,000 people in attendance. Verizon is a sponsor of the festival this year so naturally they had a ton of COWs set up at the festival. I counted at least 4. As a result, they were virtually the only carrier consistently able to provide a data connection. I didn't see any Verizon 5G, only LTE. T-Mobile on the other hand was a very interesting experience. I was seeing an eNB 331804 which I'm 99% sure is a COW. They also seems to be doing some sort of traffic management because I noticed that if I left my phone idle in my pocket, it would drop down to No Service/SOS or sometimes it would sit on EDGE. But the second that I needed to send a text, make a call, or even use Twitter my phone would switch over to LTE or 5G to complete the task. In an active data session, my phone would constantly flip between Band 2, Band 66, and Band 41. Sometimes, I'd catch myself on the COW and other times I'd get pushed over to eNB 875868, the relatively new Sprint conversion nearby. The network moved at a snails pace though. Where Verizon took about 15 seconds to load Twitter or send a pic, T-Mobile could take up to a minute to complete the same task. Here's some photos of the COWs I spotted. I think that the first two are Verizon and the one in the distance in the third pic is T-Mobile's single COW, not nearly enough for an event that size.

    • You need to have Wi-Fi Calling enabled and also have made at least one phone call over Wi-Fi Calling prior to using the inflight Wi-Fi.
