Depends what you mean by safe lol

If you mean if you lose your phone etc then yeah, I can't see any of my card info and can't access it. Plus you can remote lock and wipe phones anyway if it gets stolen or lost.

If you mean people can access it remotely then I have no idea but its no dodgier than entering info on a computer or paying via card at a shop, all the info is logged somewhere plus assuming you haven't got some back street OS then Google (android), Apple and windows etc will not have people having their details stollen plus we would hear about it all the time on radio etc.

I'm an Android convert after getting the Samsung Galaxy SIII. I have had a couple of Android accounts in the past but have always gone back to Apple. I was given an interesting link. Go to Google Dashboard and have a look at the information that's kept about you on there. It goes back some way I can tell you!

(Although I still think it's safe to purchase Apps from Google Play)

Although still an Apple fan and user (iPhone, iPad & iMac) I bought a Nexus 7 the other day to use commuting to work as it's more portable than a normal iPad and bigger to use than my iPhone 5. Hugely impressed with it so far, first Android product I've used.

Anyway, few apps I've been pleased with...

AppleTVMedia - streams from your Android device to Apple TV
Dead Trigger - very nice looking zombie shoot 'em up
Judge Dredd vs Zombies

Thought I'd upate this post. Just downloaded VisualizeR which allows you to create custom icons to applications. Means you could have larger normal icons or your own pictures to allow you to access a certain site etc.

There is a brilliant new Sat Nav app - its free - called WAZE

Whats so brilliant? as well as a satnav all the users are a community so people input traffic, camera and police issues so you can be made aware of them and WAZE will ensure you avoid them if you wish.

I run it along side the sat nav in the car, its superb!
