Absolutely brilliant !
This app is a must have for every IOS device. It just saved me my iPhone and hours and hours of trying to replace my iPhone after dropping it accidentally whilst riding my bike. I had no idea where i lost it but using an iPad it managed to pin point my lost iPhone to almost one meter radius and by ringing the phone I managed to retrieve it from under half a meter of grass and rubbish in the middle of a public park. Well done Apple.
Just updating my review (above) a year ago. It just saved my bacon again a week ago. I left my phone in a store in Brisbane CBD. Had no idea where I had left it but using my partner's iPhone managed to trace it to the fitting room of Myer. My iphone was sitting on shelf waiting for me. I have an iPhone 5 and a first generation iPad and it works perfectly on both. So I'm not sure why some people have problem with theirs
Saved me, but refresh was frustratingly slow
The 'Find My iPhone' app was just a cool idea until I left my iPhone 5 in a 3-wheeler taxi in Colombo Sri Lanka. Following in another taxi I tracked the taxi with my phone around the streets on our iPad for 1.5 hours. Finally the driver recognised me in his path standing to the side of a busy road and pulled up saying "it's nice to see you again sir, did you want a taxi?" Lol, that was an understatement.
My driver reached into his back seat and retrieved my phone from under the cushion where it slipped. A bit of excitement I don't intend to repeat.
Only issue in the heat of the moment was lag from a slow refresh rate made it difficult to pinpoint where the other taxi was. Nevertheless I'm very thankful that without warning it worked even with a different local SIM! What a relief when pc issues at home meant that I had not backed up my phone for 3+ years.
A life saver and absolute must have!
If it was not for this app I would not have got my iPhone back. After dropping it while getting out of the car across the road from my house, I searched everywhere for it. I knew it had run out of batteries and knew that looking on this app would help to some extent. I kept checking it but it said it was offline as it had run out of batteries. I put an alert out and gave my partners mobile number so that if it was turned on it would alert the person of the number to call. Thankfully they were honest and rang the number and then met me to give it to me back. While this app is not the only reason I got it back it really played a big part in it being returned. A must have!
