Good but in some circumstances useless
Find my iPhone is fantastic if you use it with your iPhone. I have misplaced mine so many times while it has been on silent and have used it to play a sound. It is also reassuring know if it is stolen that by using this app I can see its location, lock it and erase it. However, I still cannot see the point of downloading it onto an iPod touch or iPad without cellular as if it is stolen and you have a passcode on the device the thief cannot connect to a wifi network and so the app is completely useless. The only way of fixing this is by not having a passcode on the iPad meaning you hope the thief connects to wifi but this also leaves all your information at risk as well as your fabulous social networking accounts and your photos.
This app is fantastic for the iPhone and should be used by every iPhone owner in my opinion. It is extremely effective, well thought out and as a bonus looks brilliant on io7.
But if you have a passcode on your iPad without cellular data or iPod touch the thief cannot connect to wifi and therefore the app is useless. This can be overcome by not having a passcode but seriously, who is happy to have all their information such as social networking accounts and photos at risk.
Totally saved a fortune in time.
I loaded this app when it first came out and have had it on 3 iPhones and 2 iPads now however have had no need to use it until last night when I went out with my wife to the movies. I stopped for fuel and made our way to the cinema, watched the movie and while making our way home I decided to call our daughter, however I had no signal on my car kit and thought I must have left it at home. When home I could not find my iPhone, done the usual searched and rang the phone to hear it, however no joy.
I remembered the app and opened it on my iPad , whit in seconds I could see my iPads location and then my iPhone location which was 3 miles away at the garage. I got back in the car mad made my way to the garage and asked the people at the garage if my iPhone was handed in as it was gps tracked to here and I got fuel at this garage a few hours ago.
The attendant was very impressed I was able to track it down, they informed me they would have rang some of the numbers in the phone, but it was locked. So a happy ending of me and thank you (find my iPhone).
Saved by this App.
Strongly recommend this app to be installed and activated. I have lost my previous phone because of being absent minded and when I could not find my iphone, I knew I would have misplaced it or lost it and being disheartened. Then somehow I realised I had this 'Find my iPhone' app installed and thought to give it a last chance of finding my iPhone. I must say this is a fantastic app, it showed me the exact location of where my iPhone was and when I reached that place, it was playing the sound for me to recognise it. I must say, saved by this Find my iPhone App. As I have seen how it can save your iPhone from being misplaced, stolen therefore I will recommend to have this app. It could save you a lot of headache, heartache and the tension.
