1. A system for optimizing resources in a mobile network, the system, comprising:

  • a local proxy on a mobile device, the local proxy having a local cache;

    wherein, the local proxy intercepts a polling request directed to a host server, made by a mobile application on the mobile device and determines from an identifier of the polling request, that a cache defeating mechanism is employed;

    if content from the host server is already stored as cache elements in the local cache, the local proxy determines whether to respond to the polling request using the content stored in the local cache;

    wherein, a normalized version of the identifier is associated with the cached elements stored in the local cache for future identification and retrieval.
