    Just testing pingit by Barclay's. Type someone's phone number and send them up to £300 per day. No need for them to give you any card details so no way I can use other users card details on a spending spree.

    AVG has bad reviews for Android. <50% detection rates. Avast is much better.

    Tasker is awesome. Able to create task sequences to control just about any aspect of your OS/applications and tag them to profiles which are triggered by events.
    eg. On receipt of SMS, use Text to Speech to read the sender. If phone is placed face-down, reduce ring volume. If within 100 meters of work, enable wireless (disable on leaving) etc.

    Torque pro - with the addition of a cheap BT dongle attached to your car, check all your error codes, display all the ECU data (mpg, torque, bhp, air/fuel mixes etc), record yoru journeys etc.

    Samsung give you remote wipe, find your phone on map, sound alarm etc for free, so no third part app required.
    Samsung DIVE

    My lookout does do virus and malware but not sure how good it is.

    Google apps does this too, although I didn't manage to find my phone on the map properly.
