INGRESS app is using too much internet data unnecessary
There are things this app do that is not necessary AT ALL and this makes it use a lot more internet! So I am suggesting some things that may be good to do, its not hard but makes a lot difference
- convert portal images to small size. This would save some internet and these images would be shown as a thumbnail whenever is required
- Cache portal images inside the phone. Really, every time I close and open the app again, all images are downloaded again. This for sure takes a lot of internet data.
- Don’t download ALL portal images in Key Details Screen. Seriously, I am a recharger maniac, and every morning/afternoon I’m doing recharges its all downloaded again. If I go over 50 portals and they have 2 images each, every time I am recharging I’m downloading the same images 100 times!
Its all related to image because it is what is visible. And also, the point is, the portal images doesn’t change too much to be a requirement to download every time I re-open the app, right?
But I leave to you guys to think about the scenario of a possible portal change due to security/privacy/etc policies. In that case the image should be updated ASAP.
My internet Plan thank you all for a possible upgrade on this!
