Apps to reduce the data usage on your smartphones

There are various apps which saves your data at device level. They compress the data and at the same times monitor the data hungry applications.

Onavo Extend is one of the applications which is most effective in reducing and monitoring your data usage. It 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.

There are many means of reducing your data bill. The above three are most effective and I use all of them to reduce mine.
