    There's currently no need for an anti virus on android as there are basically no viruses. In fact the only thing you need to worry about is sideloading apps from Russian text messages or Chinese websites.

    Downloading apps off the internet instead of in the marketplace. Long story short if you download stuff exclusively from the marketplace then you really have nothing to worry about at the moment. So until there actually are viruses to block, antivirus software is just a resource hog.

    The best antivirus app out there is caller Nonesuch. Not only is it free, it came preloaded on your phone.

    This came from my brain by way of my finger and my phone. Don't ask where any of them have been. Especially the brain.

    Common sense is overrated.
    If you don't do stupid stuff, how will you learn what not to do in the future?

    I wonder how many people will actually search for "Commonsense" in the Market.
