Hello Johanna,

Sorry for the quite late reply. The things you stated and the research you
mentioned pointed out is quite interesting and quite a good field to
promote ourselves probably. However, ZAP is definitely better suited for
testing apps. We can do some heuristics and scans, but on the app side we
are unable to scan code and find most of the issues from OWASP Mobile Top
10. What we most definitely should do is make app secure. If we can do also
some basic scans for insecure apps, that is also quite a good idea for some
future development. Thank you for sharing the article, also if you have
further ideas for the Seraphimdroid side, I am happy to listen.

Best regards,

Nikola Milošević
