    "Easy Backup and Restore is one of a long line of apps that purports to give you the ability to back up your files and data to either a storage device or the Cloud. It works decent enough but there isn't a lot of difference between it and other products that are available"

    "There are no items in the playstore that match this result, so I cannot say this item was very good. They must have removed it due to complaints or simply no longer keeping up with the product."

    "I generally use avast for my security needs on my android but thought I would try Lookout this time. I really hate ads and pop ups. They were becoming a problem on my phone and lookout was no help. I contacted tech support and the said it may be my settings, yet offered no help with what settings it could be. This app is a waste, don't bother, stick with Norton or avast. This app has given me nothing but issues, I can not open certain applications with out being flooded with ads"

    Android Settings

    Android Settings is the first option (and usually the most accurate) for anything you want to change or fix on your Android device. For example, for showing the hidden apps, you just have to go there and tapping ''Show all hidden apps''.
