A great application to find your lost android and secure your data remotely control your Android phone from the internet or by SMS.

by AnonymousD69 (not verified) on 24. March 2012 - 23:20  (91090)

I was wondering if anyone of you have tried the Antivirus and Mobile Security app by TrustGo. I have tried both avast and Lookout but I wanted to find something else as an alternative to them. If you could check into that one for me and let me know what you think of it that would be appreciated. I've been trying it for a bit now and it seems to be a great app not really well known yet but scored a 4.7 out of 5 in the google play store.

by MidnightCowboy on 25. March 2012 - 5:27  (91104)

This is beta status software and therefore not recommended except for testing purposes. It is also important to check that the service will still remain free once the beta testing is complete.

by Av_Crazy on 25. March 2012 - 17:19  (91134)

How does one root the phone?

by Geoff King (not verified) on 27. March 2012 - 2:42  (91235)

Try Zoner Antivirus. It did well in recent tests, and is free from the Android market, otherwise known as Google Play. Lame name !.....

I love this website.

I couldn't live without it.

Thank you guys :)

by DrBaker on 30. March 2012 - 10:46  (91421)

Hey, great resource! I'd like to recommend that you check out an App called Wifi File Transfer. The free version caps you at 4 MB file sizes (annoying), but it works great for PDF files, and stuff like that. In essence, you turn on the app, and while it's running, it will host it's own local website. You just navigate to, say, on any browser connected to the same network, and you get a great web interface to wirelessly transfer your files to/from. It works great even just to browse the phone and 'delete' things that are hogging disk space.

by Jojo Yee on 31. March 2012 - 1:30  (91458)

Try also AirDroid mentioned in the list.

Look around the most beautiful clock on Market.

by Sparkie181 (not verified) on 16. May 2012 - 20:47  (93563)

I have been trying to find a free android itinerary manager similar to what TitanClass was for PalmPilotT3. The app should not force you to load your data into the cloud. Instead the app should manage your itinerary for flights and grab from the internet all the related data to show if your flight is running on time, currency rates, weather, etc. etc. All of the apps I have seen, force you to log into their site and load your data on their servers. I want the app to hold my data on my Galaxy Nexus and only synchronize with my PC. If I wanted the data to be loaded on a website somewhere, then it should only be an option and not forced on to the user.
Has anyone seen an app like this?

Here's an awesome app for finding the best free Android games to download from Google Play:
