Don't worry pal, the main thing is that the windows devs got your feedback now. :)

Since it's been 4 days and my thread has not been approved yet!, I will post here -_-

Note: I'll be posting this to the G+ community page too.

Device: Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Plus WiFi+3G GT-P6200
Android version: STOCK Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 ROOTED
Avast version: 3.0.7800

It's been 42 hours since I've installed AMS and everything is running smoothly although battery consumption is a bit high now because of the new File Shield feature. The File Shield feature is great indeed but it is not recommended for mobile devices running on battery.

Observations:
1. After updating from stable to beta, I noticed that the File Shield component is disabled by default.
2. I loved the old UI and I love the new UI too but it'd be nice to include Settings in the list of interface icons under Network Meter perhaps?
3. Updates and Avast Account should be one or do you plan on making your Avast Account's linked devices accessible through AMS like its Windows sibling?
4. I noticed that it doesn't recognize that I am already connected to an Avast Account! (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/16957580/Avast/Screenshot_2014-08-14-20-58-37.png) It says: "Sign up for free avast! Account" but when clicked on it, it shows that I am already connected. (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/16957580/Avast/Screenshot_2014-08-14-20-59-15.png)
5. Shouldn't Anti-Theft update its interface to match the new UI?

Things I've tested:
1. Scanning apps and whole storage.
2. Anti-Theft.
3. Firewall.
4. File Shield: removal of a PUP (Facesniff). (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/16957580/Avast/Screenshot_2014-08-16-07-16-21.png).

Possible bugs:
1. When trying to mark the tablet as lost using the Avast web portal, the tablet doesn't receive the command immediately! I have to open the Anti-Theft component and then it gets locked etc. FYI I am having this problem while on WiFi or 3G and both are always working good, also my friend who owns a Samsung Galaxy S4 running Android KitKat 4.4.2 (his device is linked to my Avast account too) receives the command immediately.

2. After unlocking the device by entering the PIN code, it shows strange behavior like WiFi keeps turning on whenever I try to turn it off and when I press the power button to lock the device, the screen turns off but the device stays unlocked!
Also when I click on the Avast notification icon to open the app, the device then gets locked showing me the lockscreen!

- I've been having these annoying bugs with the stable version too
- I've been using before an Android KitKat 4.4.4 custom ROM and still had the same bugs. So maybe the Android version doesn't matter, maybe it's the device itself?
- Please, consider my only feature request: https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=152471.0
- Thank you for your hard work developing such a great and free product that I proudly use :)

The note that AMS beta displays about xx events happened since yesterday, it's all well and good but I want today's events not yesterday's. Can AMS show today's events instead of showing events which happened the day before which IMHO is pretty redundant? Has anybody had someone ask you for the time then say oh no I wanted the time for yesterday night/morning?!!  I see that you use the same from  yesterday format for avast free.

So far,the new beta is good.Although it has some issues.So far PIN protection is not working for me.I've supposedly locked Gmail App and Settings but I have not been asked for a PIN yet.Plus,the app experiences a force closure sometimes on manual scanning.Same thing happens every time I click on the widget.App response seems to be slower too.And I can not refer the app to my friends through the app because every time I click on that option,it just says "Could not connect to Avast server.Please try again later." no matter how fast the connection is.
Another thing to note might be that the colour of App's UI and the small fonts are close,they present little contrast.Makes making them out harder for me.Any way around for this minor issue will be welcome.
P.S.: How do I attatch screenshots and other details here?

No idea how to attach multiple screenshots at once on mobile.Guess I'll have to do it one by one.
Found some other bugs:App lock definitely doesn't work,even with premium.I experience a force closure on the 4 th screen from the app's home menu>Go premium.Also,sometimes scans trigger even without my input and those wre definitely not scheduled.

I think I've found another bug.Previously I thought the Avast! app lock was useless and did nothing.I take that back.It does one thing.If you lock some apps,say:Gmail,it won't prompt you to enter password.Instead,say you've been reading an email and suddenly you felt the urge to go to the bathroom.When you are back,the phone's screen is off.You turn it on and find yourself on tje home-screen.Same thing happens with games,too.Disabling the app-lock for that specific app or disabling it altogether solves the problem.
Can anyone verify?

Then it may be due to the Android version.I don't have any Kitkat device so can't test that.So far,I think it exists on Gingerbread and ICS devices.
PS:Haven't tested the newest beta fully yet.Will update shortly. :-)

When will users of this beta be "treated" to the full virus database?
