    What apps do you guys have for maintenance and just tech in general if any?

    I have the following...

    Smart App Protector---controls who uses what in my phone
    Watchdog Lite---for naughty behaving apps using too much resources
    TempMonitor Lite---self explanatory
    CPU-Z---gives lots of info about my phone
    Elixir---same as above + more
    Belarc Security Advisor---very useful info regarding the security of my phone/android os

    Malwarebytes is not a AV program so they play very nice together.

    Just installed Heartbleed Detector from Lookout, pleased that my tablet doesn't have the problematic version of OpenSSL.

    I am using Avira on my Android phone and tablets.
    In addition to antivirus, you can locate, lock, wipe, and blacklist unwanted calls and messages.

    Easy, free, and no in-app purchases.

    Thanks to the ronald739 and LoneWolf for posting this. It's kind of like Grey Shirts no root Firewall + Adblock Plus only it works better.

    Cyanogenmod 11 with SELinux.
    ESET Mobile.
    Malwarebytes
    VirusTotal

    Then as a browser: Firefox mobile with HTTPS Everywhere, NoScript (but it's a hassle to toggle on a touch screen), Adblock Plus and CleanQuit.

    AHHH I see, thanks
    This app is the bomb! I can get rid of adblock+ because it blocks ads better and even in my apps.

    Settings > Wi-Fi > long press your AP > Modify network config > Show advanced options > IP settings > Static > DNS 1 & 2.

    I wonder why Android is behind on this. Using DHCP with custom DNS should be allowed.
