I recently came across this app called Onavo Extend. It basically claims to help you save some precious mobile data – useful for almost everyone one of us I guess. Before I go into the details I would like to make it clear that I haven’t tried this on a 3G network as I can’t afford one. I am using Vodafone GPRS/Edge.
The app comes with a very simple interface and doesn’t offer much of customization – not needed anyways. I think it basically does the same thing as Opera Mini – compresses images. You get to choose the image quality from low, medium and high.
I tried this app for a few days. And well it managed to save me like 20mb in 8 days. But I didn’t use it straight for 8 days because the app sometimes slows the connection down hence making it even more harder to use certain apps like Draw Something, Tapatalk etc. From what I heard the server is USA so there might be latency issues.
Another point to note is that it doesn’t save data with every app.
Only works in ICS devices
