Mobolize's New App Reduces Data Plan Costs
Los Angeles-based Mobolize, a startup developing software which caches data on your phone to reduce the amount of data transfer on your cell phones--reducing data plan costs--has released a new app for Android. According to the company, its app reduces mobile data usage by as much as 20 percent, helping users to avoid overage charges and data costs. The startup is led by Philip Mustain (FrontBridge Technologies), David Cohen (Vantage Media), and William Chow (Stamps.com, Troika Networks). Mobolize's app learns what mobile apps and websites you use most often and automatically creates caches of commonly used data from those sites, to avoid the need to retrieve those same items from the Internet over and over.
