Lantern is a free desktop application for Linux, Windows, Mac and Android. Using Lantern you can secure access to the Internet for users in censored regions and it is not an anonymity tool. According to Lantern, it automatically detects whether or not a site is blocked in your connection and then accesses the blocked site either through their own servers or through users running as access points. It encrypts all of your traffic when you are accessing a blocked site. Currently the free account comes with 500MB/Month.
