    I've heard that task killers aren't necessary, lookout, however is still widely recommended. New malware arrives daily and google can't catch all of it.

    Well there was a recent big scare with some malware that's was on allot of apps... Lookout is recommended but I never use it... Lookout is a scanner for android... as far as task managers I wouldn't use them they cause more problems than good.

    I ran Lookout a while back, but ended up with stability issues. If they've got those worked out, it could be a cool service.

    I have no stability issues at all. I love Lookout, it doesn't kill my battery and at least seems to do its job well, although I can't know for sure.

    That siren comes in handy when u are as unorganized as myself. Lookout ftw! You can turn GPS on even if it's off on the phone.. For those of us with out insurance I consider lookout a lifeline!
