Hi All, I am wondering if android apps like "Miner Status" (monitoring of your mining pool work) safe?

And in general, what Bitcoin apps you guys are using on your mobile phones?

I use bitcoin spinner as a cold storage by screen capturing the private key QR code, and securely saving the image elsewhere, then uninstall and reinstall the app to get a totally different wallet and screen capture that QR code too. When I need to switch back to the original walltet I just scan the private key QR Code for the corresponding wallet. That way I don't have to worry about the safety of my coins or my fone being lost. i think it works well for me... but im no expert.

You can keep a couple of bitcoins on android but I wouldn't recommend to keep to much there.
