Two Utilities from NetQin

NetQin has two free utilities for Android: Anti-Virus free, and Android Booster. Here are quick reviews.

Anti-Virus -- app claims to be total network security, including virus definitions periodically downloaded, as well as some "cloud component" that wasn't defined clearly.

It also backs up your contacts online (registration required) and claims to map your phone on Google maps if you register for tracking. Claims to also do remote-wipe, but this was not tested. Apparently this app leaves GPS on so drains battery.

No comment on this app.

Another app from NetQin is Android Booster. Upon closer look, this is a disguised "task killer" that also claims to save you battery life, by doing the obvious "turn off everything".

I wouldn't bother with this one.
