Does anyone use Lookout? Does anyone use any anti-virus for Droid? Do they need any anti-virus?
I used it, it didn't do anything but suck battery and take note of everything I downloaded, I haven't had it installed for months and I still get an email saying my system is safe, in my opinion it does nothing and is a waste
I agree it is probably a waste, but I downloaded it for the "find my phone" feature...you can turn everything else off. I do use the antivirus (why not) but don't use the backup feature. I can't comment on the battery life suckage
Mobile Defense as a system app works ten times better than lookout as far as "finding your phone" it will actually turn on your GPS via a text that you send from the mobile defense site and then tracks it on a map with pinpoint accuracy, it can also lock down your device
Also - to the people that love the lock screen on AntiVirus - there are apps out there that will do the same thing without running a useless AntiVirus andd sucking ALL your battery. Try Screen Suite or ICE. They both put alternate contact information on your lock screen, as well as emergency contact info. Screen Suite also offers the ability to switch to a battery status or clock screen. The minimul cost is worth the return you get with this app. And I didn't even mention the ultra-cool alien droid in a spaceship or sportscar slider you get!
Mobile Defense is a Market app, although I just searched it and didn't see it there anymore, it can be aquired from the Mobile Defense site, while it is installed as a data/app it can track your phone only if your GPS is already on, if you push the same app into the system (root required) you can activate your GPS via the website and track your device and even lock it down, also when it is a system app the icon is hidden so the app would be difficult for would be theives to uninstall
