Review:

Finally AVG has bought out a Tablet only AntiVirus app that’s perfect,  it’s just as good as Zoner but with an added bonus of being able to close apps with just one touch so not as long winded as Zoner but then again Zoner does give you full detailed information about what each app is accessing even though you get told that before you download it so why would you need it in the app :-/
