Probably one of the coolest FREE Android applications I have come across, the Antivirus FREE app does more than check out your incoming media, emails, etc. This application’s primary function is to check email, apps, download content for any incoming viruses, malware, etc. It does so with a complete scan once opened and each time you download an app, receive an email or download media. This app works in the background and wasn’t a battery-hog during my testing.
In fact, this application provides several other functions, also for FREE, such as a battery meter for the variety of uses for my Droid X 2 like: call time, stand alone time, etc., as well as an easy-to-use app uninstaller. The app uninstaller also shows you how much of your internal and SD card memory is being used with a tap of your finger. Another feature in this FREE version is a task killer that when pulled up shows you all your running programs. You can close any program by simply tapping on it. Antivirus FREE is a very nice tool to prevent more than just unwanted viruses, it also helps you manage your Android better. Check out our other Android app reviews for more Android apps. Crazy Mike
