    Been using Lookout for several years, first on my Android phone. One of the first apps I downloaded to my Nexus 7 when I got it. There is some unused functionality of the app on the tablet because those functions are for phones connected to a carrier, but for basic anti-virus / malware, it still does the job and is free!

    I use AVG and I like it because it checks each new and existing apps for virus, and you never know how scrupolous app develepoers are.

    I recomand Avast. I used Avast for Win for about 2 year at home and work and I don't have any problems. I see now a version for android, but it isn't available on Market Play. Google search on net and download. I used free version. I will test (android ver.) and I will post observations.

    as a Linux user I never seen the use of an anti-virus really that necessary.it just takes up ram usage.android,being based on the Linux kernel,is Linux.viruses don't stick to the os.only passable if transferring to a windows os.ive never used antivirus on any android devices and I do fine.i do install a lot of apps from blackmart and such.the only leak is a Trojan app that invades all your info off your device.look for it when installing apps, it usually says "WIFIADAPT." then again a lot of apps ask for permissions for a lot of unnecessary details off your device.my answer for antivirus would be that it is not recommended,just optional.a lot of people don't understand the open-source concept.remember it is not windows.
