"Data plan watchapp"

Reviewed by / Apr 10, 2012

Onavo Lite is a data counter that notifies your when you're reaching your data plan limit

Onavo Lite is a data counter that lets you set your data plan limit, the day of the month when counting starts and finish. What's more you can set price/mb when you reach the limit to control the cost. You will receive status notifications about apps that uses data or when you're about to reach the limit (set it to your liking). It makes statistics about your data usage per month.

The extend version has been specially optimized for ICS 4.0 (it only works in this Android OS version) and adds some new features.

What's more, it allows you to view the active apps. This way you can control what apps are hogging your data (and battery too). By controlling the apps on use you can save data and battery usage at the same time. You can block apps to hog data until you are over WiFi or block your 3G connection when you exceed your data limit.

Developer's original description available here
Get up to 5 times more out of your mobile 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:

To compress and save your data, Onavo Extend runs continuously in the background of your phone and directs all of your mobile data traffic through Onavo's servers and compression technology. Revolutionary universal data caching means you won’t have to use your data to load the same images every time you visit a website or use an app because they’ll already be available to you on your phone. And don’t worry about local storage, because you control the percent of your phone’s memory used for storage.

Onavo Extend also optimizes images when you share over 3 or 4G so even when you’re sending images, you’re in control of how much data you use. And the Onavo Extend widget helps you easily monitor how much data you’ve saved so you can really understand how the app is working for you.

Notes:

Onavo Extend is only supported for specific devices.

Some ROMs and kernels are missing important networking support that Android 4.0+ APIs and Onavo Extend rely on. If you've received a message saying your version of Android is unsupported, or if the app always says "service paused", please contact us using the Feedback link in the menu so we can help. Trying a different ROM or kernel should also help.

    Try it. Don't worry about bad reviews. The app does compress data. You will get more from your data plan. Idk, maybe some expect more than it can do for them. Don't be lazy always use wifi if it's there. Use ur data plan only if there's no other way to get online!

    This app saves me huge amounts of data each month. I can stream and surf as much as I want and have never managed to go over my limit yet because of this app. A must.
