FindMyPhone tries to locate your phone by GPS and network location and communicate it back to the owner. Currently supports activating by sending a secret message via SMS. The resulting location is sent via SMS
Very useful! However, how do I change the alert sound? I want it to use a custom-made synthesized file but I can't...please email me or such.
Does what it should do. Just send an email or sms with your secret word. GPS gets active and after your GPS-position was obtained (or timed out) you will get responese to your message with the phone position. If GPS timed out it will use network information which may not as exact as GPS. Response containes the address (if that could be resolved) and a link to google maps, where you can easily see the position. If triggered via mail the response got the map attached as image too. When using mail as trigger the secret word has to be placed in the subject. If you like you can define a prefix too.Dont know what that feature is for, because you could also have a sentence as secret "word". Anyway. A very nice and useful app! Only thing I was missing: An notification icon in the tray when the secret word was received. This would be great to trigger other actions like "lock phone", "speak text", "unmount a crypeted container"... How? Well, via another great app called "Llama"...
