Collect or not to Collect?!

Being quite new to PowerApps could someone explain to me when collections should or shouldn’t be used please?

 

I’ve got a few collections in an app I’m building but I’m not sure whether it is best to use them or not. 

Thanks!

Don't use them unless you have to.

What does that mean? Many thanks!

Building collections in PowerApps is a great way to keep data, take it offline, manipulate data and batch it up to your data source of choice.
