Opera Max Leaves Opt-In Beta, Now Ready To Compress Data For One And All [Update: There's A Waiting List]

Update: While the app is no longer behind the Play Store beta wall, Opera is apparently waiting before they throw the switch. The Opera blog post said access to the general public was first come, first serve, but there's a waiting list in the app right now. Opera is allowing everyone access, but it's happening slowly, probably to manage server load.

Unlimited data is becoming a rarity these days, so you might need to watch your usage more closely. Opera Max is a tool that could help you stay under that cap. This app routes all your non-encrypted data through Opera's servers to compress it by up to 50%.

[New App] Meet Me Halfway Lets You Meet In The Middle 'Neath That Old Georgia Pine (Or Anywhere Else)

My football buddy lives on the east side of Dallas. I'm way out west of Fort Worth. Since there are more than fifty miles between us, neither of us know the area of the megacity that's directly in the middle very well. When football season rolls around again, I'll give Meet Me Halfway a try: it's a simple little app that locates the midpoint between two people and helps you find good places to meet in the area.

Initially Meet My Halfway just showed a physical midpoint between two addresses, as the crow flies. But with a few adjustments, it now shows the middle of the Google Navigation directions, making sure that the two parties spend roughly equal amounts of time driving to meet each other.

[HOLOYOLO] Official Holofication Nation App Lets You Automatically Update Community-Modded Versions Of Popular Apps

More than two years after the Holo visual style became standard, there are still quite a few major apps and publishers that aren't on the trolley. Plenty of eager graphic designers have submitted visuals for Holo versions of these apps, but the two-man team at Holofication Nation has gone further: they've actually remade the apps themselves. If that's not enough for you, they've also released an official HN app to the Play Store, making it easy to download and update these unofficial app mods.
