In order to use my apps, I have to have Internet. But why ? When I open Uber, the Android app that’s been downloaded over 100,000,000 times, and don’t have internet, I get an error message “No Internet Connection”! Don’t the developers who created Uber ever need a ride when there’s no internet? Why can’t I at least access the menu, my history, or the help page?
