Security News Apps!

Hey all,

Just got a new Samsung Galaxy SIII on Verizon. Rooted, unlocked bootloader, and is running 9/14/12 build of CM10 right now. Can't wait for the final release!

Anyway, now that I have a phone that can handle more than one application at a time (RIP Droid Eris, aka CDMA Hero), I am looking for a good security news app for Android.

Though I don't want this to be all about Android, but you can share apps for iOS and WP7/8, too!

I know Rapid7 just released their SOC Monkey, but currently that's only on iOS :( I read they might look into an Android version if there was enough interest, but nothing much since. Any similar security news aggregator, aside from standards like gReader and such?

You can also install backtrack on your phone:

Have fun with these hacking tools and always be ETHICAL

The good thing about android is you can hack android and android can hack others!! Lol
Good luck

Re: Security News Apps!

Cyber.spirit, I wasn't really looking for security/pentest tools on Android, but those are good to know! And putting BackTrack on my phone?  :o

So any suggestions for Twitter feeds to follow? I mean, since I have to create an account anyway, right?  ::) Any suggestions for an Android Twitter app, too? Is the official Twitter app any good?

Follow @cd1zz and follow all the people he's following 8) You'll quickly add more as you see interesting retweets, mentions, etc.

Re: Security News Apps!

Cyber.spirit I was looking for good infosec news apps on Android, rather than tools to pentest or exploit things.

Please don't take offense to my comment earlier, I was just kinda surprised that you posted a bunch of stuff I didn't ask for, but found interesting nonetheless! :)

Re: Security News Apps!

Or you can also install ChannelCaster and subscribe to InfoSecurity News. I created this channel which currently grabs about 69 popular security/malware/hacking feeds.

Also, I recommend Tweet Lanes because it complies with the Android UI and Falcon for Twitter (awesome widget).

Re: Security News Apps!

Should I install all three apps you have suggested? Can I use your channel without Channel Caster?
