Been using avast on and off for several years, typically uninstalled due to overhead.  Gotta say so far, the beta is much faster and promising to keep.

OK so after using the Beta for a bit this morning, noticed a couple things... the Network Meter portion crashed when I first tried to open it; running on a Galaxy Note 3 with a custom Touchwiz ROM.  Second time, it opened however I noticed the data usage was not accurate at all.  ....I was streaming music via Google Play Music on my way to work - yet Google Play Music didn't even show up in the list.  Other apps I had utilized this morning didn't show up either.

Just become a "tester".  It looks good.

Seems to take a lot longer to scan the apps (maybe a good thing, being more thorough?), but everything appears to be working as it should at the moment!!!

Love the new UI!!!

Almost the same design like the ui in "Avast Internet Security" on my Windows Laptop.

Hi Deborah,

Have a few thoughts & comments on the new beta build.

I noticed the scanner took little bit longer then old version as reported above, I have 16GB Motorola droid ultra and using just about all of that 16 GB so its understand it takes sometime to do a full scan. I really like the new interface very user friendly and easy even for a beginner.

I attached a few photos of some text problems showing when i click the "Go Premium" at the top of the main screen, when I scroll through what you get with pro if my phone is up right all the text dose not appear right. If I turn my phone on angle I can scroll through and see the hole text. It's not much of a big deal just wanted to make you aware of it.

I feel I'm not testing this to its full potential and very interested in trying out the ad detector and the take a picture of the intruder option looks real cool. My son likes to pick up my phone and facebook without me knowing this would be the ultimate busted option and a sure stop to that happening. Any info on how to obtain a voucher to go premium and really put this to the full test.

Hopefully I did not confuse you with text problem, any questions or comments please let me know here or PM.

Thanks

wilber

One thing that was not said about this beta is that we are not using the full virus database, which is either an oversight or kind of creapy depending on your point of view.

I played about with the anti theft sending it commands via the SMS remote control feature. Great but the communication log does not delete when the text says if you want it deleted and you press yes.

Why does it not possible to block unwanted sms or sms with unkown numbers?
Is this a "feature" form Android 4.4.4 Kitkat or bug.
