It's not a free product it's 'currently' free.  It's a beta so that may be why it's free, but as previously stated "There will be no premium (paid) version for the time being.".  Does that say it's free for ever, no it says it's free now.

@ darre(20x n)
Avast! has a long history of offering free products, such as the free version of avast! antivirus, which I have been using for over seven and a half years and it existed before that.

Now that could obviously change (no one is going to give a forever guarantee), but the current policy is that there will be a free version. So I rather doubt there will be no free version of avast mobile security, but there could be a different feature set in the free mobile security product and 'if' there were a premium product.

If you don't like that idea I guess you could keep using Threat Aware until your license expires.

I've asked the same a lot of times 10 years ago. Will avast free antivirus remain free? I got the answer and trustfulness in the company.

Are we able to update from the beta as checking for updates in the beta doesn't reveal a program update or do we have to reinstall ?

Still reported as the beta build.

Updating right from the Android Market worked OK for me - didn't it for you?

Thanks

I tried to update from within the mobile security UI.

I ended up browsing on the phone to the to the original beta topic and using the link to the android market to get it to work.

Still finding my way round the new phone (great) and android 4.0.1 ;D

The in-product updater is for the definitions only. The app itself is updated through the Market.

(I agree that we could have been a bit more explicit about this though, the way it is now is slightly confusing).

Cheers
