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.

Helps with data used.
Bugs !!! Slow Internet !!
DOWNLOAD AT RISK OF SLOW INTERNET
As the title, download at the Rish of slowing down your internet. I loaded this onto an iPhone 6 Plus on AT&T. I said I would give it at least a month and see if it saved me any data. Here in the month of February 2015, and it's not even the 23rd, I deleted this app.
My internet connection became shoddy and oftentimes videos failed to load any longer on Facebook or YouTube. This is a brand new phone and where it used to be blazing fast, it became annoyingly slow. I thought maybe it was just the location in the city but I travel the same route to work and home by public transportation and noticed slowdown in speed. I threw in the towel when I driving around running errands and my GPS app failed to connect. Turn directions were missed and reconnecting became a pain. Tonight on my way home I couldn't load a YouTube video. I had a Windows Phone on the T-Mobile running circles around my iPhone playing the same video. Hardly scientific, but my AT&T connection would always be the strongest of the two. I decided it was Onavo causing the extreme slowdown.
Now to be fair, does it save you data? Yes it does, but not by much. In the 23 days, I had the app loaded, it save me nearly 733 MBs. If Inhad continued on to 02-28-14, I probably have saved myself a full 1 GB but at what cost? I sacrificed a smooth, fast, continuous stream of internet data and that made the experience horrible.
I have a friend who works in IT and he made a valid point, most websites and media content are optimized for mobile data use these days anyways. Anything this app does, will be minimal not to mention the security risks and who knows who is monitoring the data.
I say pass on this app, and just be mindful of your data usage.
