iVirusScan is an app created by McAfee (though leaked to the public) to scan for viruses on your iPhone. When you open the app, you will get a splash screen letting you know that this is a beta version of the app. From here you will be brought to the main info screen. There is information about the Version of the app, the DB Version, Last Update date/time, Logs, OAS Statistics and more info about the app. Inside the Logs options you will see two logs, OAS Logs and Application Logs. Inside each log you get the log history, you can select an entry to get even more specific information about that entry. The same goes for the Application Logs. The OAS Statistics option gives you the following information; Files Scanned, Total Size, Scan Errors, Files Infected, Cache Hits and Cache Size.
On the lower menu bar you will see four options. Info (which the app opens to), Scan, Update and Settings. The Update option…I’m going to guess….updates the virus list. The Setting option only has one setting, the ability to turn on/off the virus scan. If you select the Scan Option you will get a screen with a Scan button. If you tap the Scan button, it will begin to scan your iPhone. At anytime during the scan you can select Cancel to cancel the scan. Once the scan is complete you will get a screen displaying the number of Files Scanned, the Total Size, the Scan Performance and the number of Viruses Found. Honestly guys…I see no need to install this app. There are no known viruses on the iPhone so, I’m not really what it is scanning for. I found that when I had iVirusScan on, it massively ran down my battery because it was running in the background though, you can shut that off in the settings. Install at your own risk. iVirusScan is available through the McAfeeMobile Dev Repository.
