This password and data manager stores sensitive and important information such as Web logins, passwords, credit card numbers and frequent flyer numbers which you can conveniently access on-the-go. The app uses 256-bit Blowfish encryption to safeguard stored data should you misplace the mobile device or it gets stolen.

For US$9.99, the AVG Antivirus Pro adds battery and storage optimization, secures apps from being accessed by others, and lets you back up all apps to the user's SD card.
