How much battery and data will Onside use?

Find out what to expect regarding battery and data usage.

The Onside app has been designed so that it won’t slow you down. 

We know that your phone is an essential tool and, if you're like us, you probably use quite a few apps throughout your day. Every app uses some battery and processing power which can slow your phone down. That’s why, when designing the Onside app, we were careful to ensure it was as battery and data efficient as possible.


During an average working day Onside will use around 5% of your battery. The app mainly uses power when you have it open, so if you use it a lot in a day you might expect slightly more, and if you don’t use it much, it will use less. 


To download the Onside app, between 40 - 90 megabytes will be used, depending on if you're an Android user or an iPhone user. If you are concerned about this, we suggest you do the initial download while you are connected to WiFi. 

After that it will use about 1 megabyte for every 5 properties you check in to. To put than into context, if you have a 4GB data plan and check-in to 10 properties each day for a month, Onside will use less than 2% of your monthly data allocation.
