    I dont see how the story qualifies are a conflict of interest?

    But regardless, The app in question isnt what i would deem a "security" app. It allows for tracking of the phone essentially, allowing you to find it via html if you lose it or it gets stolen. The paid version works more like an internet security suite on a desktop, monitoring websites in the browser and showing a list of apps with access to your personal info. It doesnt include any sort of encryption for the device.

    Lol ... why would you add a crapy piece of software add-on on a tied end-to-end bullet proof environment ?
    This is a joke ...

    Perhaps he's just trying to divert the argument away from QNX/BB because if what were told by RIM is true, he knows
    it is inherently a far more secure platform than, say, Android...so, no need for his product?

    Isn't it the same function as Blackberry Protect? Come free pre-installed.

    I use this app for my Galaxy S3 cause its pretty useful there. Scans apps for malware, takes remote backups, allows remote security wipe etc.
    It's kinda useless on BB10 as BB10 or BBOS 5 and up have BlackBerry Protect which I would trust more than a flimsy app. Why would I pay for an app when I can get the same functionality from a first party app that's better and free?

    Short Version: It's useless on BB10 and no one would bother downloading it, leave alone paying for it!

    It's very popular on Android because users have peace of mind that their phone is supposedly been protected from viruses and spyware (whether it actually works or not, I'm not sure). Androids in general have a reputation of been vulnerable to attacks which benefits Lookout's popularity even more. Not to mention Android currently has no native "find my phone" solution (correct me if I'm wrong).

    While it's available on iOS, it's a lot less popular because of iCloud and BlackBerry 10 will have no need for it with BlackBerry Protect coming to BB 10. Same case with Windows Phone - they have their own native solution.

    Try avg instead of lookout. Lookout is a battery hog for what it's supposed to be doing. I'm glad that's not an app I support if the ceo is that much of an out of touch @$$hat. For all we know he went to RIM peddling his app and RIM turned him down in favor of their own solutions and now he has a grudge.

    lol wishful thinking it's just the coming conceses when someone hears blackberry they think legacy OS and that bb10 holds similar or that they just listen to the rest of the population and try to make up excuses why the are wrong
