    Hi Jan, as it stands you don't need an antivirus, not yet anyway. The way iOS is designed is that all apps are sandboxed so that if an app did get a virus it couldn't be transferred through the system to the iOS or other apps.

    Hang around these forums, if there does come a day that an antivirus app is required you will hear about it here first.
