Opera Max Comes in Beta on Google Play – Promises up to 50% Data Savings
I must admit that back in the days when Chrome never existed I was one very enthusiastic Opera Browser fan. And I still consider people don’t give it enough credit. In any case we must admit they were the first to promote internet data savings through compression. A feature the competition is still struggling to implement. But the mew Beta app is something more.
Opera Max by Opera Software ASA has no relation whatsoever with the mobile or desktop browser. It was made as a separate app so that users can benefit from the so desired data compression feature without having to install the browser. But it goes beyond that. That is because the app is capable of interacting with other software installed on your device. How about that!
What Opera Max does is run all data through the Opera servers and compress it so that it can provide a much more convenient result in terms of usage. The app does not work with encrypted data but I consider that a good thing. Privacy after all and important data should never go anywhere else than in the personal devices. Then there is the interface of the app that is very pleasant. Both simple to use and fast it becomes a real pleasure to access it when needed.
Opera Max should be out of Beta very soon. Till then I think it’s a wise decision that you get it for free from the Store. This is not one you will regret installing.
