Here is an e-mail I got today from Lookout regarding the changes coming to the app:

Hello, You may have heard that we have a new premium product in the works and today we're excited to tell you more about it. We will continue to offer our award-winning essential security for free, but soon you'll be able to get even more security and privacy protection for your phone with Lookout Premium.

What This Means For You
As a reminder, nothing changes for you as a current user - unless you want it to! You can continue using the same great Lookout features you currently have, free of charge. While we will continue to offer a free product, a few of our free features will become premium features for new users and, as we're announcing today, we're adding new premium features too. If you want to upgrade to Lookout Premium, you'll have the option to do that.

Quick Summary:
- We will continue to offer a great free version of Lookout to all users.
- Anyone who is a Lookout user by November 15 (midnight, US PST) will continue to get all the free features available in Lookout today
- You'll have the option to upgrade to Lookout Premium on November 16.
- Lookout Premium will be available for all Android devices.

Additional Security + Privacy Protection

Lookout Premium will be available to download from the Android Market on November 16. Until then, tell your friends to download Lookout before then so they get the same deal that you get.
