    What's a good security program, and how do you know if it's working? I know how I'd find out it wasn't working.......

    What kind of Security Application are you looking for - if it is against viruses then one is not needed - if it is something else you have in mind then some detail will help us help you :)

    If you mean purchasing it through the Android Market some people have found it safer to buy a twenty dollar rechargeable Credit Card from Wal-Mart and using that - it keeps your Credit Card number off of the Net and still gives you the liberty to shop the Android Market as needed :wink:

    Download it from the Market. As of right now, the Android Market uses Google Checkout to purchase, or pay for apps. Google's checkout service is very secure and the person/company you are paying does not get your credit info.

    Thanks for the great info on the Marketplace and Google Checkout. I was a wee bit apprehensive using it, but I think I'll be fine. I've only purchased from a 3rd party company and send the program links as a text message. I LOVE the throw away VISA number idea. I hadn't thought to use one.

    Thanks, folks. I forgot I had Google checkout; bought my app in 10 seconds, and felt secure.

    BTW, it's a REALLY great app. for $.99!!! I'm always making a grocery list, and leaving it on the table. I always have my phone.

    Gawd, I love my Droid!!
