Android users know firsthand how their devices are data guzzlers. In many cases, Android users have eyed BlackBerry users with envy with regards the low-cost data tariffs they enjoy. Google may not have done anything till date to alleviate this, but Opera has stepped into the arena to attempt to save Android users from huge mobile data bills.
Opera Max is a free app that provides up to 50% data savings from compressing video, images and text on almost every app on your phone. Yes; not just the browser, but almost every app. The app only provides savings for non-encrypted data usage. Data cannot be saved on any app that uses encryption e.g. Facebook.
Opera Max is currently in beta and is available for download from Google Play.
