AVG updates its AntiVirus for Android

On November 28, AVG Technologies announced the latest update for their AVG AntiVirus for Android.  Features  being promoted in the latest update include:

  • New design: sleeker & easier-to-use interface
  • Faster and more efficient access to features, tools, and sub-categories
  • New dashboard
  • New categories & menus
  • A “widget” feature  allowing users to monitor and interact with features of the product without having to open the app 

 AVG offers both   free and paid versions of antivirus for smartphones.  You can learn more about their mobile solutions at
AVG Technologies gained entry into the Android mobile security space in November 2010 with its $4.1 million acquisition of Droidsecurity ( ) from Maayan Ventures, a group of private investors and DroidSecurity’s managers.  At the time, Droidsecurity offered both  free and paid versions of their products.  DroidSecurity was the  maker  of the first full-featured Android anti-malware application DroidSecurity mobile Security Suite The company was  founded in 2009 in Tel Aviv, Israel.  By August 2010, they had hit the 2.5 million-user mark. 

You can't claim  to be the first to offer the first free product on Android by buying the company that has a more legitimate claim.  Transitivity doesn't count here.  Check the dates.  Perhaps the first 2.5 million doesn't count.
