Android is already known for its less than rock solid security. In fact, thanks to its open nature and the ability to side-load apps from just about anywhere it’s safe to say that Android can be a veritable minefield when it comes to keeping your device safe and secure.

Having remote access to your mobile device can be an invaluable tool, particularly if you happen to misplace or lose said device and wish to increase the probability of its safe return. We’ve featured many such apps here at Redmond Pie, and another interesting effort for Android users has just popped up over at the XDA-Developers forums.

Switching from one smartphone to another is not really an easy feat, and even more so if the platform is different from the one that you’re currently using. Just recently, I decided to make the switch from iPhone to Android as my primary business phone, mainly because my work relies heavily on Google Apps and Android binds relatively better with those (and because my company promotes Android over iPhone). Nevertheless, while the rest of it was pretty smooth, one area that took some thought was getting my text messages from the iPhone to the new Xperia Android phone. Thankfully, there is a solution, even though it takes some time, we’ll show you how to go about it.

The majority of the iOS community will more than likely be familiar with the work of French iOS security researcher Pod2g. For the better part of this year, the iOS security enthusiast has been working hard on finding and exploiting various bugs in iOS that have led to the production of jailbreaks for various iOS devices. He has also been seen out in the wild at various security conferences, including the HITBSecConf and has been nominated for a Pwnie Award for his kernel exploit that was used in the Corona jailbreak.

While I’m a bigger fan of Android than I am of iOS, I’ve found that iOS’ jailbreak community is a whole lot stronger as there is always a useful new tweak released every other day. This is, perhaps, partly due to the fact that there are only a handful of devices to work for instead of the endless amount of Android smartphones. Developing for iOS is relatively easier.

We’ve all done it. You receive an important SMS, usually a shopping list from your wife and you dare not ask what you’re supposed to be picking up for the second time. Problem is, you got a little swipe-happy and deleted it. It’s gone, gone for good. Well, not quite.
