Hey Koodo Forum!

I'm really liking the idea of Koodo bringing a Social Media Add On to its existing line up of plans. With this inclusion, customers could have access to some of their favourite messaging app's (like WhatsApp, iMessage, Facebook Messenger) without incurring the data charges that these apps press to Koodo. This means that for a flat fee, you would have unlimited access to these apps, providing you subscribe to the Add ON.

Perhaps, another possible Add ON could be a Navigation Add On, giving customers cost free access to app like Google Maps, Apple Maps!

I personally know that I would use the first add on, as iMessage is becoming more and more of a data user. With the greater demand for picture messaging, group messaging etc!

I think this is a pretty neat and good idea. I could see this being actually used these days for quite a few but not so much that it would hinder Koodo

I like this for Google Maps. It would be the only thing that would get my mom to try a smartphone.

My only concern is that data would need to be on for this to work and Data leakage from other background apps would be tricky to control

Net Neutrality is another concern. I see the CRTC getting involved and banning add-ons like these, and with good cause.
