My yahoo e-mail was named today, and it got me to thinking about security.
With Android's popularity, I may be underestimating the need for it.

What should I download, an what should I watch out for?

AND...can I trust everything from Google play? Or do malicious app writers lurk?

Yes malicious apps do appear on Google Play, most are quickly removed by Google but only once reported or found by users and or agencies that look into malicious applications and malware.
You are your own first defence against malicious applications when you agree to an apps permissions, if you think an applications permissions are unreasonable the do not install that application.
