    on the go

    Hi, I'm happy to be back:)
    In the phrase
    "any user can effortlessly access them on the go", what does it mean "on the go" - "too busy" explanation doesn't fit...
    Thank you

    It means "while they are away from home/work".

    Re: on the go

    The idea is that you do not have to stop. If I grab something to eat "on the go" it means I do not sit down in a restaurant to eat. It means I get something and eat it while I am going about my business (perhaps driving to an appointment or to run errands).

    Probably one of the few places where you wouldn't eat it is while waiting at the dentist's!

    If i'm going to pay someone to clean my teeth, I might as well get my money's worth!

    I know people who feel like throwing up while the dentist is meddling with their teeth!
