Onavo -- free award-winning app compresses data usage, saves you money

image

I just received a press release saying that Onavo (free for a limited time) has just won another award. This app helps you  get the most out of your data plan. It works in the background to compress your data usage so that you are effectively doubling or even tripling the amount of data usage available to you. The app is optimized for travelers, when data usage can be most expensive. Note, though, that although they're intending to add this capability, the app doesn't currently compress streaming video or VoIP usage such as Skype.

UPDATE (20:15 CET, the same day): a reader at MacRumors, Night Spring, has mentioned I've forgotten to point out the other and, in this case, Phone Disk-less and even Windows-friendly way of quickly transferring a complete directory structure to GoodReader running on the iDevice: zip all the files up into one big ZIP file and drop it into the File Sharing frame of GoodReader in iTunes. I've even prepared a video showing this:

Every now and then an application comes along that really shows off the potential for iPhone to contribute significantly to users’ lives in a new way.  Stock Chartist looks like it just may be one of those applications.

It’s a stock market tracking app, but Stock Chartist does more than provide a scrolling marquee.  It’s customizable in every conceivable way, giving users the opportunity to keep a close eye on their stocks’ performance anytime, anywhere, any way they’d like to.

App Review: SpeedUpTV: Fully-loaded Video Player, File Viewer, Folder Manager & More

image

SpeedUpTV is a new highly rated video player for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, brimming with added features, from mix1009. With 4+ stars as of this review, it seemed time to find out what all the hype is about.  

As the name suggests, SpeedUpTV gives the user some control—actually, a lot of control—over playback speed.  Users can play back videos on their device from half the original rate of speed and up to twice as fast. While that’s the feature that the app pushes in its title, it offers a few pleasant surprises for those that expect nothing more.
