from website : https://sites.google.com/site/artcoip/tech/apps2avoid " So here is a short list of common android apps that Slow down your android system. I have compiled this list from online articles and user forums to inform others of these issues. Removing these apps might help with speed or freezing or rebooting issues. Also I know its kinda silly but you'ed be surprised how many annoyances can be fixed by simply pulling out the battery and restarting the phone. Advanced Task Killer Sports Tap Poynt Twydroid Scvngr ANY ANTI-VIRUS The last one is really more of a notice. There are no currently known viruses for Android cell phones. There are malware apps (apps that may not actually do any damage but steal your information). But if you pay attention to the permissions page of the app it tells you everything your letting the app have access to. So if a game like tetris wants your communication info (sms, call logs etc.) chances are the writer of the app is not trust worthy." I jmorri2011 just want to add, that android is just a mobile flavor of Linux anyone ever heard of a Linux user installing an antivirus ;-)
Forgive me if this was asked, though I am 99% sure it hasn't come up yet because I did thorough searching using the site's search engine as well as third party engines. This morning I attempted to download and install game guardian (using this site's download link), and when I opened up the .apk there were quite a few flashes on my screen which instantly made me panic and think I might have messed up and downloaded some nefarious application. I quickly uninstalled, wiped, did all I could and I noticed that when I installed Game Guardian there was a second app installed, same icon and everything, called catch.me.if.you.can. Now, I already know that antivirus and other security programs will flag Game Guardian as dangerous software because of its inherent nature, but I really need some assurance that Game Guardian.net is not a group of malicious individuals. More importantly, what is this second apk that was downloaded and installed? I really am worried right now and want to know if anyone can explain this Catch.Me.If.You.Can deal. Bless you all in advance.
