GPS Thief Tracker -- Private-I
By Michael Schneider
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
If your iPhone is lost or stolen Private-I helps you track it down.
If someone finds or steals your iPhone and opens the Private-I application, Private-I quietly sends you an email message with your iPhone's location.
For best results, position Private-I's intentionally intriguing icon on your iPhone's first page of icons.
Hopefully your iPhone will never be lost or stolen, but if it is, Private-I is on the case.
Actual customer response:
"HI, I just wanted to thank you. Thanks to this wonderful program I was able to give the exact location of my stolen iPhone to the police and am eagerly awaiting its return. And let’s just say I will never trust distant relatives again!
You have saved this uni student $850. I don't know how I could ever thank you!"

Has 10 Star Potential...
The GPS locate function has been pretty much dead on everytime I test it which surpasses the other apps I've tried by a mile. The thing is more accurate than my $300 Garmin Nuvi which puts you 1/4 mile past my actual location. I can't blame Garmin for this alone though as I have had othe people using other brands such as Tom Tom and they had the same issues. I am not talking apps here I'm talking devices designed to get you here and yet with no major obstructions they are way off.
The only thing holding me back from giving it the highest praise possible is my card exp date shows as 2009 even a thief can read and sense a trap. Would like date changes to a few years in advance or even better would like to have ability to change date myself.
My first iPod, a nano, was stolen right out of my hands a few years back. Luckily my second iPod never suffered the same fate since I never brandished it around like an idiot... it was a hard lesson learned.
Getting my iPhone today, just so happens on the news a woman had her iPhone stolen, but got it back via a GPS tracking app. Got me thinking... "I need something like that, because this is a huge investment in my hands right here," so I searched, and I found this app. Tested it just now, and wouldn't you know it... the maps had me pegged, right in my apartment. :)
Fate forbid that my new toy should EVER be stolen, but if it does, I'll be prepared. Evil-doers beware. :D Thanks!!
Update the app so the pic of the credit card does not show an expired credit card. The pic that loads shows it expires in 2009. Wanna b thiefs would b more likely to retry to open more often if they thought they were getting a current c-card. Thanks! Great app!
