    Default Restricting Mobile Data Use to selected apps. Please help

    Hi there Guys
    Im looking for a way to leave my mobile data on, BUT only giving access to apps that i choose. For example, Mobile data should be on, but i want ONLY Whatsapp or BBM to connect to the mobile network. Is there an app that lets you do this? or settings somewhere. For the life of me, i cant figure it out.
    Samsung Galaxy s4 is the phone

    That's a pretty strict requirement. You can see if Tasker (app) allows you to do that. But what specifically are you trying to accomplish? I mean, other than not letting other apps access data? Is it battery consumption? Data? Because most apps that access data can be set to not sync automatically or retrieve data unless you tell it to.
