VirusTotal is the latest security app hoping to spook Android users into worrying about malware. It scans the device and checks any malware found against its database, flagging dodgy content. It won't actually remove them, mind.
And finally, for some light relief... Dog Click is an app from South Korea that's essentially Instagram for dog owners – an app for sharing photos of your pet pooch, with the added feature that it can make "sounds that may get your dog's attention and make them look at the camera."
