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

Current free features will remain free, don't worry :)

Hi please note that you are part of a Beta program. There can be lots of issues on different devices we do not know yet. You can at any time sign out of the beta and revert to the current public version.

But, if you want to help us finding your issue, you should tell me more details to holzner@avast.com. Like phone model, Android version, installed avast! Apps.

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!

You are ages and ages back from androidlost. Androidlost has all this features for FREE except the Geofence and Backup so why should I give money for something that I have FREE? The only ability that you are good at is on the tracking of the phone.

We've just released a bugfix update build 5575. This update contains several bugfixes: crashes at startup, alternate way of Google Drive registration, feedback with error code why Google Drive registration failed. Regards Reinhard

Regarding GDrive problems: 

OK the client has been released as well (5575/5576) please try using it once it is published on Google Play. The change on client is as follows: first it will try the old way (that failed for you guys). If it fails, it will give you a dialog with an error code (i NEED to know that error code, even if you proceed!) and an option to use the "Web method" to authenticate. This is an alternate method of authenticating we implemented as fallback but did never use - lets see if it helps.

Yeah this takes a while usually! Anti-Theft Advanced should be already available.

Which are the default settings for File Shield in the moment?
I have upgraded and the settings were kept, so I don't know if anything changed in last release.

reason is that file shield consumes more power on device so we concentrate on good out of the box experience and leave this to the user to decide.

I have a Nexus 4 with android 4.3 all stock and no root. Since I update to android 4.3 I cannot track my phone from the web-portal. I get "Command timed out" all the time. This happens both with Anti-Theft 2.0 and the new 3.0 beta (which I just installed). With 3.0 I also get communications failure when I check for "Fix connection problems" under my vast account on my phone. It worked with android 4.2.2.
