Opera is teasing Max app to compress all your mobile pics and videos

Opera is getting ready to release its mobile data compression app Max to a wider audience: The browser maker opened up preregistration for a beta test of the Android app Tuesday, promising that the app will help users to get the most out of their data plan. Max does this by routing all data requests of a phone through Opera’s servers, where it is compressed and then sent to the phone. Google (s GOOG) recently introduced data compression for the Android version of Chrome, but Max works for any app, including image and video sharing apps like Vine and Instagram.
