DEVELOPERS, READ THIS!!
It seems to work sometimes until I actually need it! Told me my phone was miles away and then I found it under the couch... And now I've lost my phone the location was jumping all over the place and then when it switched off the last location was only available for 24 hours (roughly) Every mugger knows now that if you steal an iPhone you need to turn it off straight away. Maybe apple should allow the app the ability to store 1% off battery and give the app the ability to turn the phone on and locate itself?? Just a thought. If not that then it should at least tell you the last location off it before it was switched off for longer. Even if it just automatically located every hour or so it would still be better than it is now. I want to rate this app good as it seems to work fine when you try it out for yourself but every time I have needed it it has let me down so it's a disappointment!
Also the police don't do anything with this app so unless you are up for turning all vigilante it is useless...
My wife lost her phone when we were out shopping. We tracked our steps back to the last location outside a shop. The occupants were foreign and denied any phone had been handed in. Once we were home we turned the Mac on and traced the phone to an address 7 miles from us. On knocking on the property door I found the owner who coincidently was the owner of the shop and they had my wife's phone and retrieved it after a few words and envolvement of the police which was not necessary in the end. Dishonest people once again.
A plus device highly recommended.
Had a mechanical problem on my car, which found me crawling under it. Managed to nurse it to my mechanics at 11pm. Popped the car keys through his garage doors. Then suddenly realise my phone isn't with me. Still no worries it only in the car. I'll get it tomorrow.
I walk home, log onto the iPad, just to double check with find my iPhone its in my car. To my horror I discover its 7 miles away where I'd been crawling under the car!!!
Into the girlfriends car, a fast drive to town, and there it is against the kerb. I'd never have found it without this app.
