    I wanted to scan an .apk from my computer before I transfered it to my Droid. I was finding this impossible. But Netqin Online Virus Scan specifically says,

    "NetQin Online Virus Scan is a free service to scan software packet for Mobile OS, such as Symbian S60, Android, KJava, and Windows Mobile (for “.sisx”, “.sis”, “ .apk”, “.jar” and “.cab” formats)."

    Anyone know of other online scanners that work on .apk?

    What does it mean impossible? What error do you see?

    Sure I can scan with conventional PC AVs. But nothing that specifically states that'll scan an .apk on a computer. I mean I've seen no documentation from a PC AV vendor saying their PC AV can detect a virus within an .apk. Clear as mud, right.

    try virustotal

    VirusTotal now analyzes Android apps (.apk) from forums


    why use 3rd vender apk why not for android market itself

    i just google and put some .apk scaning samples of virus total

    Does VT specifically say it detects a virus in an .apk? That'd be my point.
