  1. R’ Gil, יישר כחך for the excellent shiur.

    Regarding the statement that you don’t believe the technology has arrived for secure mobile devices, I was wondering if Funamo was considered for Android. I’m considering installing it myself. It costs $20.00. Have you or anyone here heard of it and if so, does it do the job?
