    Good app, but as highlighted no way to test whether it's really working. Auto updates itself regularly though. Remote wipe settings fairly extensive and perhaps a bit complicated. Good section showing privacy intrusions of each app. No problems eating batteries, mine typically lasts 1.5 to 2 days.

    It has never found a threat on my phone, so either it's working, or I don't need it as mentioned on The Pit.
    The lost phone feature requires root access, so most of us are SOL as long as we are concerned about warranties.
    Someone mentioned it was eating batteries on their tab, and my phone has been doing just that-eating batteries. Hmmmm...
