Ready to get more from your mobile data plan?
Onavo Extend saves your mobile data so you can do more of what you love on your phone without spending more on your bill. Once the app is installed on your phone, it works in the background when you use mobile data to find ways to save. Onavo Extend:
• Loads images when you scroll down to them so you don’t use valuable data on images you’ll never see
• Balances image quality and data savings based on your settings so you’re always in control of how much data you use
• Automatically turns itself off when you connect to Wi-Fi
How it works
Onavo Extend compresses all the data you download over 3G, EDGE and LTE, including images and texts. The app gives you reports that break down how you’re using data by apps and other mobile activities so you can keep track of where you’re spending your monthly data allowance.

Jury Still Out
I'm still not 100% sold on this app. At the very least, I can say that I have noticed a marginal reduction in my data usage. However, the majority of my data usage is via the streaming of data and music, so I'm not sure I'm really noticing a massive reduction in use. And since I have a 10GB data plan, I don't monitor closely enough to notice a negligible difference.
Since all of the above reviews all scream "professional review" written by an ad agency, marketing rep, publicist/PR, or the app's creator themselves, because nobody writes an actual review like that, I'm at a loss for of this app actually makes a difference. I'm going to say that it does, but I'll let you do the math.
Not only is the price right - its 100% FREE! - but this app reminded me that I'm charged for ALL THE BANDWIDTH that I use whenever that I'm not on WIFI.
So this app saves me from making an additional $20/month contribution to AT&T for exceeding their 200 MB/month limit.
I've been using onavo since iPhone 4; it worked great then and just as good on the 6. It prevents overage charges and there is literally no maintenance other than an update now and then. Since it's free there's no risk!
