I like the way that SmrtGuard works. There’s few features each security app has that stands out, which is why I have more than one. With SmrtGuard, my favorite features are: Anti-Spam (for those wonderful spam emails about nonexistent rich relatives dying, or those fun “enhancement” meds); BackUp (Contacts, Memos, Tasks, Events, Call Logs, Emails, SMS, Blacklists); Follow Me (On foot or in vehicle), Where I’ve Been; and the Personal-Guardian. The Personal Guardian is nice because you preset a button as a panic button.
Try it out and let us know what you think. You can download the latest version one of two ways. First, by opening up your SmrtGuard app, and you will be notified that there is a newer version.
