Avast! Mobile Security - I tried it out. It tripled or quadrupled the time it takes to boot up the phone, and I realized I can provide plenty of security on my own with plain old smart choices, so I dumped it. It is also not very friendly with Google's security features. If you have your gmail account, etc, text login codes to your phone, avast isn't very friendly to them. It was a must to remove this software.
I CANNOT believe you didn't include a free talking translator. I'm disabled and once in awhile I go to this Chinese place for massage. They can't speak a lick of English, so I just use the talking translator to communicate with them. It's one-way of course, but they know words like "yes" and "no".
