ONAVO DATA COMPRESSION APP FOR APPLE iOS RELEASED FOR TENS OF MILLIONS MORE MOBILE CONSUMERS
Wildly Popular and Free Onavo Extend App Now Available on 4G LTE iPads and iPhone 4S on CDMA Networks
Consumers Can Now Get Up to Five Times More from Data Plans and Fight LTE Extreme Data Usage
Tel Aviv – April 24, 2012 – Onavo Extend, the data compression application that enables mobile users to experience up to five times more from their wireless data plans, is now available on 4G LTE iPads and iPhone 4S on CDMA networks. For the first time, tens of millions of Sprint and Verizon customers and millions of iPad users can tap into the power of Onavo data compression to extend their data plan and mobile experience without changing the way they use their Apple device.
“In just six months, Onavo Extend has become a must-have app for millions of people around the world by alleviating costly data overages and roaming charges. Onavo compresses data by up to 80 percent – meaning people can do 80 percent more web browsing, emailing, photo sharing, Tweeting or updating Facebook without changing anything,” said Onavo CEO Guy Rosen. “Today we are excited to make Onavo Extend available to tens of millions more people with the release for 4G LTE iPads and iPhone 4S consumers on Verizon and Sprint who more than ready for a better mobile experience.”
The rapid consumer adoption of 4G LTE iPads has been accompanied by growing irritation at how quickly the popular devices burn through data plans on basic activities like web browsing and usage of popular apps. Similarly, iPhone 4S users on Verizon and Sprint’s CDMA networks are searching for remedies to their explosive data consumption problems, which are compounded by new data caps and limits on usage that carriers continue to roll out, often equating to higher charges and a poor user experience.
“Onavo Extend is critical for every 4G LTE iPad owner; we have heard from many people who have burned through their monthly data plans in as little as a day but do not want to reduce usage of their favorite device,” said Rosen. “It also provides a free insurance policy against overages and degraded network performance for iPhone 4S users on CDMA networks like Verizon, where the network has done away with unlimited data plans. Our availability on the latest and greatest Apple technology, empowering users to get way more out of their data plan, will change people’s bills – and the amount left in their wallets.”
Onavo Extend is free for both iOS and Android, and uses Onavo’s cloud-based, compression technology and analytics to allow users to get more from their data plan without changing the way they use their phone. Easy to install and simple to use, it runs in the background, silently compressing data so users can do more with their mobile device on even the tightest data plan. It also reduces roaming charges by providing a leaner version of the web on the road. Abroad or at home, Onavo Extend also gives monthly data usage reports to easily understand, plan and manage data consumption.
