Still crashing at the point of me pressing go premium. which is not impressing me to be honest. Every other way of trying to enter avast ends with a crash. Great!
Make sure that you still have AMS 3.0 Beta! My Google Play Store Reverted to AMS 2.0 this morning! :-(

I have 3.0 for the reason that version 2 works! This (3.0) does not. I wish I was downgraded. Might do it myself soon if this unholy mess is not sorted out.

Could you please tell me how you reinstalled it? I never got the AMS 3.0 Update this morning and on further investigation (after I had already performed the factory restore) it was back to 2.0 in the Google Play Store and the change occurred sometime this morning. I still am enrolled in all 3 Beta Programs as kev815pan@gmail.com!

Mine says 2.0.4993! Updated on August 1st, 2013. I am sorry but I don't have the ability to import a screen shot from my phone at the moment because one of my computers is running Windows 8.1 and the other is running Windows Server 2012 R2 (both are Build Number 6.3.9431).

That is weird but do you have any problems with the build? (Apart from it not being the beta that is!)

You realize that you can get a month free by clicking on the word voucher and typing in AVASTBETATEST don't you? It did NOT even prompt me for a Credit Card Number by the way. Just for your information.

Hi,

currently there seems to be an issue on Google side with the beta program. We are trying to solve this as we speak, but as you can imagine, it might take some time.

patrice58, so now it downloads 2.0.xxxx version for you and still doesn't work? Or it does now? Did you try to do a clean install of AMS instead of updating to beta from current public version? What's weird is there are no intensive error reports on our servers or on Google Play so I don't really see what might be wrong with your installation :(

Filip

Hello,
I am now testing all of three apps and have problems and suggestions that follow:

AMS:

- App locking feature isn't working. I set my own password (using avast PIN) and try locking recommended to lock apps (Google Play, Settings) and even some other apps but it doesn't show the locking password.
- Uninstall protection hasn't been working. I have contacted with Filip before and waiting for his solution. :(
- The main interface seems difficult to see other features (which is available when slide to the right) and may make users wonder whether these features are still available. So I suggest adding a direct "user guide" in the first time of use about the "slide bar".

Backup:

- I had a problem related to signing in to Google Account (after tapped on "OK" in the permission dialog, it said "Connecting..." then returned to the permission dialog again). This problem is fixed now.
- I don't know if there is a "refresh" in case the back up process interrupted (maybe due to connection problem). If not, I suggest adding it.

Hi, what device is it? I see that is is rooted and probably AOKP ROm; there are some permissions issues with starting the Mobile Security. Do you have Google (GAPPS) installed on the device?
Nexus 4 with Paranoid Android 22/07/2013 (AOSP) and PA Gapps 19/07/2013 (android 4.2.2)

Avast! worked fine before I updated to the beta!

Also, out of interest, are we going to loose any features we have now or is it new features are premium?
