Onavo Co-Founder and CEO Guy Rosen: "Every time an operator drops its mobile data charges we are delighted for their customers. And we are even more delighted as every dollar, Euro or pound they save with their operator, we turn into two or three when they have the free Onavo app installed.”
“Thankfully roaming charges are coming down across the world, but for most people the cost is still unbearably high. What's the point of having all these great free smartphone apps like maps, translation tools, even email, if you can't afford to use them once you step off the plane. With Onavo, you can have your iPhone and use it too when you're roaming," he said.
In addition to slashing data costs, the Onavo app also provides visibility into the device’s data usage, so you can see which apps are using the most data.
Onavo presents a win-win solution for both carriers and end users who can now pay significantly less for data consumption on iPhone, iPad and soon Android devices, without compromising their user experience.
iPhone owners looking to reduce their data costs by up to two thirds can download the free Onavo app from iTunes.
Onavo empowers smartphone and tablet users to regain control of their mobile data usage, by providing a service that makes mobile data consumption transparent, manageable and efficient. Its first app, launched in April 2011, enables iPhone and iPad users to slash mobile data costs by applying state-of-the-art compression to shrink apps’ data consumption and providing visibility into the device’s data usage. Onavo is a privately-held company, backed by Magma Venture Partners and Sequoia Capital. To learn more about Onavo, visit http://www.onavo.com.
