  • 5 : I've used AVG for years on all my computers and devices. Very happy with it.
  • 5 : Works great. It's awesome having this installed on my phone. It has all the features the laptop and desktop version I am used to using. It's a smart idea to download this app. and it works.
  • 1 : This app came installed on my phone and wasn't an issue for the last year. But recently they decided that it needs to be running in the notification bar at all times without being able to choose to hide it. Since this change I have noticed a dip in my battery life, and it's because the app continuously changes and runs new programs within itself. Also I have every notification turned off and every time it updates it turns all of them back on, and it updates pretty often.
  • 5 : This is a good solid app have never had issues with it. Keeps my phone protected
  • 3 : I had no problems for the first 8 or so months that i have used the "Pro" version of this app that is included with my phone's package. To be blunt do not use the e-mail contact to report by, instead open the menu tap help/support > then tap FAQ 5 times for a direct link to report via. Otherwise your taking your chances w/an overseas entity that constists of those who really just don't care to be of any relivent help!
  • 3 : It would have been 5 stars but for some stupid ass reason,after purchasing the pro version,when I downloaded this app to my new phone from the same Google play store I bought it from, all of a sudden I'm getting ads and being harassed to update to PRO version like I didnt already pay for it. You guys and gals behind the selling of these apps that we pay for,need to get it together.
  • 2 : Great app which I have been using since I got my phone. Decided to get Ultimate version for the VPN too. Everything works as advertised. Two things are a reason why I gave it four stars. One is the inability to remove the icon from the notification bar. Had to lower the score because now VPN is completely unusable, as it only momentarily connects to US addresses before disconnecting. Have to use separate AVG app for VPN functionality.
  • 1 : This is an update to my previous review: HORRIBLE. It came with the phone, did scans and a couple other minor chores on a regular basis. Ok. But recently it began popping up full screen ads. A nuisance, but I can just click them off. Now it pops up full screen ads with full volume crashing sounds including loud high action music for full action game apps. Talk about a nuisance! Go to disable it, & get a warning that doing so may destabilize phone. Thx AVG. If I have to buy one it won't be yours.
  • 3 : not liking the persistent AVG is running in the Notification Tray after latest update. The clean junk option regularly tells me it can delete over 500mb's of junk files but once the "cleaning" is done, its only deleted 20 or so mb's of junk. the deep clean feature, requiring a seperate app, suggests that i have 3.19 gb's of junk that i can free up. i installed it and it only freed up around 100mb's of space. The ram boost seems to really only benefit charging time, albeit only by a small percent.
  • 5 : Awesome antivirus. Its always up to date, its fast and even though it contains ads its NOT like those annoying ads, it doesnt push ads into your face and i respect and appreciate that, because it is a rare thing these days.
  • 1 : This thing keeps trying and failing to run in the background, it stops working, but in the process of trying to stay open, it KILLS my speed to the point where scrolling down a webpage takes almost ten seconds to load just one scroll. I tried disabling it, let's see if it works.
  • 5 : All of AVG is awesome! Have been using it for several years now and it is the kind of protection you need to keep your phone secure and virus free. Very user friendly and AVG is always working in the background. You cannot go wrong by using AVG and the majority of what you need is free!
  • 1 : XPERIA 10 USERS. DONT INSTALL. This app causes your touchscreen to become unresponsive frequently. It almost made my phone practically unusable and I was about to return it. As soon as i uninstalled this app, my phone started working as new and I nsver experienced the unresponsive touchscreen again. Just download the AVG Cleaner instead to clear cache and RAM every now and then. Seriously Xperia 10 users just uninstall this and avoid it.
  • 5 : So far so great! This app has plenty of useful security features and options to better protect and optimize your mobile experience. It came pre-installed with my Sony XZ3, and so I just knew it wasn't one of those "malware" or "bloatware" apps. Thanks AVG !
  • 1 : Intrusive battery draining adware/bloatware. Should be illegal. Had to root my phone just to get rid of it. Now battery actually stays charged all day and i can go five minutes without it sending an ad or trying to gain access to stuff. Absolutely horrible program.

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.
