On 21 December, 2011, we launched our Android antivirus/anti-theft solution (see our official press release). The beta version, released a few weeks earlier, was well received, and generated a lot of initial buzz in the Android community. What follows are quotes from early reviews, many of which were written about the beta version. We have also received a lot of great feedback from our avast! user community, and thus a few days ago AVAST CTO Ondrej Vlcek responded to 10 frequently asked questions about avast! Free Mobile Security.
Here is some of the initial praise from the Android community:
“It has the potential to overshadow just about all of the apps in our Mobile Security App Shootout.” “A strong contender for the best overall security app on Android.” “Extremely sophisticated security solution accessible to everyone.”
– Android Police (product review, 7 December 2011)
“It looks like Avast is determined to sink its teeth into a huge chunk of market share of mobile security, as it released more like a security suite for Android than a simple antivirus.” – Softpedia (product review, 22 December 2011)
