Important notes on compatibility:
* Runs on any device with iOS 6.0 or above.
* Once FoneHome has been installed and registered on your device, you will be able to send a push message to your device at any time using the FoneHome website. If you send your device a push and someone swipes to unlock the device while the push is still on the screen, FoneHome will start up and transmit the device's position regardless of whether the app was previously running.
* On devices without GPS capabilities (iPod touches and WiFi-only iPads), FoneHome determines the device's location using its Wi-Fi connection.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. (Continuous GPS is only active when you place your device in 'Lost' mode)
What's New in Version 2.2.8
Still the best
Updated: Still the best overall essential app because u can send a text to ur thief and snap a photo when they read it which is auto-uploaded along with their location; and they can't stop that. How cool is that! make sure u have a password for your device and u can turn on 'no deleting apps' in settings. Location history is very useful, the last 100 position reports, I wish that could extend further like to the 1000s (google latitude can but without all the other features).
The VoIP feature works for me in Internet explorer (xpSP3) but not in Firefox because the flash settings dialog box is blank when it pops up on call initiation even with flashblock and all blockers disabled. So just try other browsers until it works. Like skype. Useful if thief takes out SIM card!
Set check in to 10 mins and gps report to 2 hours. Uses very little battery and enables fast photo capture of thief. U can see where it's at instantly with other apps but a quick response for photo taking will prove invaluable.
Works great, very accurate locations
This app works very well and gives very precise locations when you want them. The only annoying thing is that it makes you market their product and get a referral sign up before you can use the camera taking picture ability in stealth mode. I understand their marketing strategy but not all of us like hawking products to others. They should give that mode with the purchase price, or charge a little bit more for it if you want it.
I lost my phone and I thought it might have fallen out of my car at the grocery store, and I was going to drive 20 min. there to check. But then I remembered I had this app, so I looked it up on my computer and it told me it was at my address. I went and looked in my car, and it had fallen between the seats into the back. It saved me a 40 min drive that would of ended up disappointing!
