Hinfo Data Size Comparison

We focused on creating Hinfo in a way that uses minimal data, whilst providing a great experience.

Reducing the amount of download has a number of major benefits for guests. It saves data from the Wi-Fi allowance your property provides to guests and/or mobile data off your guests phone plan, results in faster download times if guests have a slow internet connection and saves space on the guests devices to store other content.

Guests entering a property requires only 1-25MB~ per property, depending on the number of images used and viewing all information with default settings can use 35MB~ in total. These figures may be slightly different depending on the information provided to us. In addition, general web browsing usage is also required, but will be less data usage with more direct links to webpages provided in the app.

As of Sep 2019:

This all means Hinfo works on almost all smartphones and tablets actively used in Australia today.

These figures should be viewed as a guideline for who is staying at your property.

All figures below are based on an iPhone X running iOS 13 and Samsung Galaxy S8 running Android 9.0 in early October 2019.

Apple's App Store only shows the install size for each app, which is the amount of storage it uses on the device. Developers are the only people who can see the download size for their own apps. We have included the download size for Hinfo below, but no two same apps are to scale for download vs. install size.

'Data Usage after Install' figures highlight how much download is required after installing the app on your smartphone or tablet to use the majority of its functions.
