At Angel Stadium for Monster Energy Supercross. At the end my wife left her purse at our seating area. We were gone for 30 seconds and when I returned her purse was gone. Wallet, new prescription sunglasses and her iphone were in her purse. She told me about this app and I downloaded it immediately. Got it started, pinged the phone and the app showed the phone was still in parking lot near street exit. Me and my friends ran to the area 300 feet away. No luck. The exit area like a parking lot, lots of cars crawling out but no way to know which car had the phone. After a few minutes we realized if the phone is moving, you must continue to ping it for updated location. We tracked it to a burger joint then to a residence. The home was a fourplex and gps gave us 2 different addresses. Talk to local PD, not much help there. Called the phone several times, no answer. Went home, slept. Next morning pinged the phone again, still at thefts house. I used the message option on this app to write a kind request. Described the burger place, wrote his address in message, asked for just the phone back for med. info stored on phone, put my number on message. The purse with all contents (except cash and iphone case) was returned within 45 minutes. No questions asked, just happy to get everything back. Great app.
Greatest App Ever!!!
So last night my husband and son went to pick up something at a family members house, my son went to knock on the door (at the family's house) my husband got out of his vehicle and stood a few feet away from it to observe. All of a sudden someone came up from behind him and jumped in our vehicle. Shocked, my husband turned around and tried to stop them, but they managed to take off with our vehicle. Both my husband and I have iPhones and the Find My iPhone app, he had left his phone in the vehicle. After calling the police (from someone else's phone) he calls me to come ASAP. When I get to the scene, the police were already there and I gave them my phone with the app open. The person was smart though and turned off the location services on the phone, but thanks to the app and the perks that come with it, we were able to lock the phone and the location services were turned back on. With my phone in hand, the police were able to track the person, find our vehicle and the phone, and arrest the person who took it. The police said it was a smart thing to have the app and that we were very lucky.
I really am so thankful for this app and feel blessed that my family is safe and everything turned out ok. Whoever created this app, thank you so much, you are a genius!
Saved me in a tough situation
Felt so compelled by my experience with this app that I had to write a review. Wasn't sure this app would ever come in handy until the day it saved me (or at least my stuff) and a lot of headache. Was in a bar with friends, getting ready to leave and I realize my coat is missing (along with all my wallet contents, phone, etc.). After a good panic I use my boyfriends phone to track my phone in the find my iphone app. It found that my phone was only three blocks away at another bar. Ran to the car, drove to the bar and found the two people who had walked away with my coat. I was over an hour away from my house, and its a miracle they hadn't left. Confronted them and was able to retrieve my phone, coats and all my belongings. Whether it was an accident or they were surprised that I had caught them stealing, I'll never know. I do know this - when I needed this app the most, it worked and it was a night and day life changer. Can't praise it more. Couldn't believe my luck that I had downloaded this and it was on. Not to mention, my phone had 1% charge left... so lucky. Anyway, get this app, you just never know when it could save you.
