Looking for some help from the veterans. Do I need to download App Lookout to protect my Droid or is there another that is better?
Lookout for use as a Virus Scan is unecessary application as there are no viruses associated with Android - it does have another feature (to locate your phone) but IMO there are applications that are much more efficient in getting that done -
Also if VZW or anyone else has recommended a task killer - keep in mind they are highly frowned upon by Google (the creator of the O/S) and (Most) of the members here in the community - it does not play nice with the operating system, as Android has a very efficient task managment process built right in - and third party apps that claim to do the same just add confusion and slow down performance and battery longetivity
You definitely should - there is a video somewhere around here from Google that explains how the O/S works and why a task killer can cause issues - give me a few and I will link it for you
I second that on a task killer. However I use lookout on both my Droid and my husbands and have not had any trouble. I actually like lookout. It scans apps that I download and has found some issues with apps.
