How did this app get on my phone and is it spyware?
This service is standard software, included by the manufacturer of your phone. It is not illegally downloaded, and it is not spyware. It will not cause system malfunctions or pop-up ads to appear. It is not bloatware and typically uses a max of 20 MB of space. For example, on a 16GB phone, this service takes up 0.0013% of space. We do not pay phone manufacturers to have this service pre-installed.

How can I remove this service?
Since this service is standard software, you’re unable to delete it from your phone. Instead, you can disable this service by following the manufacturer’s instructions. The typical process is: settings>applications>application manager>appropriate app>force stop>disable

Disabling this service will not affect your phone’s software. If, in the future, you require the ability to connect to services and devices via ANT+, just enable the service again.

NOTE: Since this is a factory installed service, it may enable/re-download if you reset and/or update your phone. Don’t panic! Just follow the instructions to disable it again.

Does this service track me without my knowledge?
No. The ANT Radio Service and ANT+ Plugins Service applications provide a wireless connectivity service, similar to Bluetooth or WiFi, but with very low power. These services do not collect any personal data.

Is it difficult to develop an app with ANT+ capabilities and is there a fee?
Using the ANT+ plugins in your app to communicate with ANT+ devices is quick, easy, free and uses a simple API. Visit the ANT Android Developer page (http://www.thisisant.com/developer/ant/ant-in-android) for more information and to download the SDK.

  • 1 : As this is a system App, I don't think it should be available for review. But since it is, and I don't believe it is ever used by my apps, and it's unremoveable, it's just another 15 to 20 megabytes of wasted space on my phone. Something I cannot afford.
  • 1 : just updated this morning and was working fine. Closed phone down and rebooted-and it uninstalled itself. Fine job NOT GOOGLE APP STORE!!!
  • 3 : I don't think that companies would allow themselves to sell phones that has preinstalled spying software. Even if anyone is interested in your private info and "spying" on you, you would't even know it or/and have that app as listed. But, we SHOULD be able to uninstall whatever we want, so having this apps that can only be disabled (like Facebook), doesn't make much sense...
  • 1 : Pair between Win10 and S20+ failed. Not any more and integration and compatible if Windows10 mobile app companion is enabled and after lattes updates.
  • 1 : Drops connection every minute or so. Needs some serious work!
  • 1 : This app thinks I signed up as a beta tester with another account. It will not let me open the apps. No idea what this is, other than bloatware that came with the phone. Apparently I don't get to find out either
  • 1 : Yet another garbage app forced on us that will not allow uninstallation... or at least disabling it! I did not ask for or install this app, it's on my phone by default, apparently.
  • 5 : Ever since I installed this app I gained the ability to read minds and control mobile devices with my mind, pretty cool I recommend.
  • 5 : Most reviews for this app are negative and, a great majority of them are from people that don't even got a slightly clue of what this app does or what is it for...and yet they give it a bad rating and comments as they were professional developers. Perhaps democracy is not that good after all. Come on! Using google won't bait you.
  • 5 : Great work. No issues on the function of purpose. Review by Protonumus [YouTube]
  • 1 : Pre installed garbage, can't uninstall, takes up precious space. Just as bad as Facebook.
  • 1 : Radio? Some kinda archaic boomer word, like cursive.
  • 1 : Amazing! Before I had this app I was homeless now I'm working at a fortune 500 making over 10 billion a year it really changed my life! I can't recommend this app enough!
  • 1 : This app embedded/sold or bought it's way into my device! Never heard of it or saw it until it just showed up! I have never used it, dont want it, but can't get rid of it! Yet even though I clear data ,click off permissions uninstall updates hit force stop and disable ! It just helps its self back to my system storage and data !I can't update MY choice of apps because of these useless garbage taking and adding all the time ! You ,this app as well as other Ant apps invading You all all despecable

Q: What is an APK File?

A: An Android Package Kit (APK for short) is the package file format used by the Android operating system for distribution and installation of mobile applications. Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same.

Q: Why CloudApks.com can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from CloudApks.com, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Q: If I install an APK from CloudApks.com, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like CloudApks.com goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: What are Android Application permissions?

A: Applications require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.
