    I wonder if you could run this on a virtual copy of Android (ie, on your computer). Then you would just have to install the app on the computer, then, if it's fine, install it your phone (without lookout, etc.)

    While I think the idea is good, I would never accept the battery drain, and as jstafford1 has been pointing out, just using some common sense is still good enough to keep you safe.

    Lookout does more than just sniff out exploited apps. They offer Security, backup, and just in case your device is missing, you can sound an alarm when the phone is in silent mode and also track it via GPS. In the news not to long ago, a man was carjacked. He remembered that he left his Android phone in the car. He logged on to the website and told the cops where his car was.

    I encourage everyone to go to their website and have a look at least.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. If you choose to be able to install non market apps then run around installing things like mad from Chinese websites or Russian text messages, not checking for permissions or whether or not the app works as advertised after you install it, you have a lot more problems than antivirus. If you're that excesively trusting/naive/stupid then while you were downloading that trojan, someone was probably robbing your house which you left unlocked with a sign on the for that says "please dont come in here, i have recently made an inheritance and all of the money is under my couch in a shoe box. Oh and if you do come in dont touch my recently purchased 70 inch plasma since i havent had the time to propperly wall mount it yet and it would be very easy to remove."

    If you want to use an antivirus program then by all means do so. However it should be rendered all but useless with an ounce of common sense.

    i have a droid x i dont understand how these people on here call lookout useless. go to battery manager when.your phone is almost dead and ill bet you money lookout is not one of those percentages. lookout can only do good plus track your phone.
