Ever since AT&T got rid of its unlimited data plan for iPhone users, dealing with data caps has become part of life for many people. Now, a new app aims to help cut down your data usage without you changing your habits.

Onavo claims to effectively double or triple your data plan by running all of your data requests through its compression servers. That way, your data will be much smaller than it would be normally. It also keeps track of how much data each app uses, so you can pinpoint what the real data hogs are. You'll notice a bit of a slowdown, since everything will be going through a new process on your way to you, but if you're worried about constantly hitting your data limit, this could be a godsend for you.
