Get up to 5 times more out of your 3 or 4G data plan without changing the way you use your phone. Do this while using your favorite apps, sharing photos, browsing the web, and more. Even when you're traveling abroad, Onavo Extend will help you stay within your roaming plan.
" [It] will be able to shave precious megabytes off of [...] wireless bills, which will be particularly useful when roaming." - Venture Beat
"It's clever [..] you could save yourself a lot of cash!" - BBC
"This app doubles your data plan" - WSJ.com
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.
You control the balance between image quality and the amount of data you’ll save in Onavo Extend’s settings.

Saved my Data Plan
Before I downloaded this app, I consistently went over my data cap. After downloading this, as well as Onavo Count, I saved a lot of data and this allowed my phone to be much more useful at the later end of the month. The only thing that I would add to this app is a push notification to tell how much data I have used in the past ten days, or when I'm nearing every ten percentages of the data (ex. 10%, 20%, etc.). Overall a very strong app and a must download for everyone wanting to conserve their precious data.
Stupid with some things!
On one web browser that I have called downloads, it won't let me use it because it said that onavo needs to protect users and could harm them! Well, I have been using this browser for a long time and nothing has happened to me, so I don't understand that. Also, sometimes when you try to turn off VPN, it is a hassle because it doesn't want to turn off and just stays on, which is super agitating. This could be great, with a couple of improvements, and it does do what it says. Thanks.
I was initially excited about this app, but I ran into problems that caused me to abandon it--mainly the fact that it caused me to use substantial 3G data when I was connected to WiFi. Something about the VPN was not working at the time.
So I left, but when I got my new phone I thought I would see if they got the kinks worked out. There is still one annoyance--I can't get this app to work without Onavo Usage also installed (which I don't want). Aside from that it works well, though data reduction is not as great as the hype suggests.
