We told you about Max Mobile Security when it was first released for BlackBerry 10 and the application has now been updated to its fourth version bringing new features and improvements as well as BlackBerry Q10 support.
As I mentioned in our initial post of Max Mobile Security - with BlackBerry 10 having the ability to run Android applications I presume that there is now some risk of malware etc that could effect your BlackBerry smartphone. I'd rather be safe than sorry and although the application does hold quite a hefty price tag you need to weigh up the risks for yourselves.
*Update* It seems there is a slight bug which BlackBerry are working on - so if you get a message saying you have insufficient network coverage don't panic - all will be resolved soon. Feel free to contact the dev directly if you have any issues - firstname.lastname@example.org
