The mobile revolution has put a lot of power into the hands of end-users – both in terms of feature-rich smartphones and tablets, and in light of their ability to easily pick the applications and content of their choice. Now many companies are moving to give end-users the power to manage and monitor their mobile data plans, performance and usage as well.
A little company called Millenoki is among the outfits delivering a solution on this front.
Millenoki’s datasquasher mobile application gives users control of their own experience. They can use the app to compress, or select lesser-quality (in terms of parameters like pixels or frame rate) content. This can lead to up to 90 percent savings in data use, which can result in significant savings for users, particularly when they are using data roaming, company sources tell TMCnet. It also can enable better battery efficiency on mobile devices.
Now in beta, datasquasher is expected to be available through Apple’s App Store and the Android Marketplace starting in the next few weeks. The company is also preparing to support Windows Phone 7 and Symbian (News - Alert) devices in the future.
Other solutions from Millenoki include Clear My Mail and mailsuite.
ClearMyMail is a spam blocker that was researched and developed over a four-year period before being launched in early 2006. If users ever receive an unwanted e-mail in their inbox, Millenoki will provide the service for free for that month. ClearMyMail now has customers from more than 100 countries.
Mailsuite is a message integration system that organizes and manages messages from e-mail, Twitter (News - Alert), Facebook, and other sources – providing a consistent experience among different devices and messaging sources. With mailsuite, Millenoki also provides an IT control panel. IT staff can use that to create policy control relating to mobile applications while the mobile device is in use within the enterprise.
