Finally an app has filled a pressing need for travelers who venture outside their wireless carrier’s coverage. Better yet, it’s made the high priced smartphone bill with a long list of roaming charges a thing of the past.

Just like their name implies, a company called Simple Solutions created the new Roamy app to simplify the experience of traveling abroad. The only app of its kind in the marketplace, Roamy allows users to filter their smartphone’s applications and limit expensive roaming data usage while traveling.

Newly launched in June, Roamy has already garnered positive reviews from users. Users who avoided high roaming charges and quickly found the app to be a necessity. By putting total control into the hands of the consumer direct benefits are three-fold. Travelers can turn off apps not relevant to their trip, manually set data usage limits on the apps that are, and get an audible warning when the limit is exceeded. Cost-effectiveness all around.

Now, international travelers can limit data usage across their favorite apps like Facebook, WhatsApp or TripAdvisor. After all, what would a trip abroad be without social networking and info on the best local eatery?

Adding to the benefits of the roaming app, when users are within their own country they can set monthly data limits as well. Remesh Gajadin, creator of the Roamy app said of the successful launch, “I created the Roamy app because there was nothing on the market that would allow me to limit my data usage when roaming. As a result apps and emails became incredibly expensive to use because I was outside my carrier’s range. Without the Roamy app, roaming charges can be upwards to $30 for a few minutes. That’s alarming to say the very least.”
