Who doesn’t want to always stay updated with the latest and greatest? Everyone wants it, but when we think about automatic apps update, we don’t care about it when we are connected to WiFi networks. If we have a small data plan on our mobile, we use the internet on a limited basis and at that time we need to control data usage on smartphones.
