    AVG or Lookout for security?

    Im looking to get an app that I can remotely track and wipe days from in case is lost or stolen. Ben looking at the two apps mentioned in header. The reviews on lookout complain of uninstalling issues. AVG, I see complaints of battery hog. Which is most popular among these forums? Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Also, Im not stuck on these two..... just the ones that keep popping up in the market search.

    I think most people here are against using apps like these so you might not find a popular one. Do you have insurance with Asurion? If so I think they have an app that can do that without bogging down you're phone so much.

    Prey for Android is free and will track droid phones, as well as laptop computers with GPS and WiFi settings and you can remotely lock the device and make it produce a siren noise if you've tracked it to a nearby location.
