300 reasons to try the cram app

Late last year, Accusoft released its space-saving Cram app for Android on the Google Play store. Based on the 310 reviews posted so far, people who have tried Cram like what they see.

Cram users collectively give Cram a 4.2 rating out of 5, which at this writing certifies the app as better-liked than Grand Theft Auto III (3.8), the Amazing Spider-Man 2 (4.1) and even the Facebook app (4.0).

And what’s not to like?

Cram can reduce the amount of storage occupied by photo files by two thirds or more, and trim the data plan minutes required to send photos by two-thirds as well. And Cram does it without sacrificing the display/print dimensions, resolution or quality of the image.

That extends the time you can wait before offloading photos from your phone, and leaves more room on your Android device for apps and other content. But Cram is about more than convenience. It’s about saving money.

Long-term, the big costs in the wirelessverse are not in the screens and processors, but in space allotments: how much on-device storage you use, and how much data do you exchange through the network.

To keep their monthly bill manageable, many customers bet against the house, carefully trying to spec out the fewest GBs and the smallest data plan they think they can get away with. Too often, the house wins that bet, and users are faced with overage charges and a premature need to upgrade to a roomier device or shell out for a fatter MicroSD chip.

Most smartphone users who exhaust their on-board storage do it with picture files, those lovely, fat JPEGs piled up by 8- and 13-megapixel sensors. Those same users tax their data plan allotments, and their patience, by sending those oversize photo files through the network to email and social media.

If you shoot and share a lot of pictures, it’s no exaggeration to say Cram triples the size and speed of your smartphone. It’s like getting the $300 model for the price of the 99-cent loss-leader.

A major player in image processing technology for more than two decades, Accusoft holds the patents on the world’s best JPEG compression technology. That technology achieves the highest level of compression with no perceptible image degradation, which is why it’s used in Fortune 500 companies for web performance optimization, archival, medical imaging and much more.

Cram packs that same enterprise-level compression technology in a $1.99 app that’s free for the first 300 photos compressed. And Cram is getting better all the time. Just in the last few months we’ve added support for saving Cram-reduced photos to SD card storage on devices running the Lollipop OS, and the ability to reduce photos in the background.

Have you given Cram a try? With 300 photo compressions before you spend a dime, there’s no reason not to.
