Droid Controller Free is a simple free text based phone location app. If you forget your phone somewhere, or if it is lost or stolen, you can use any phone with texting to have network(needs 3 nearby towers to be accurate) or GPS locations texted back(these location features must be enabled and the app must be setup). The pro version also enables you to retrieve call information and forward all incoming texts to a specific number or you can remotely enable forwarding in case of a lost phone. Uses no battery until you request a location.
This lost phone app is also great for keeping track of unruly teenagers and making sure they are where they are supposed to be.
This app can be installed from Google Play and run with the default secretcode "Hey phone" without quotes. Handy for when your phone has been lost stolen or forgotten and the app is not installed. Only works with android versions prior to 3.1.
