Our smartphones and tablets have already become an important gadget in our life. Our favorites apps, our contacts and even our loved media are kept in there. Even if we use cloud-based storage service to backup of that files, the device itself is "our" precious. Due to this facts, lose it or get it robbed turns into a highly non-desirable situation. TectDroid is an app with interesting features oriented to help you bring your device back.
First off, you'll be asked to set a lockscreen pattern or PIN. When you get pickpocketed and the guy tries to unlock the phone, TectDroid instantly emails you the GPS location, date & time along with a photo from the front camera. As it developer says: "it's very hard to argue with photo evidence".
You can even set to choose a lockscreen text, a message the thief will see when trying to unlock the device. Likewise, yo can customize it to the fullest: set receiver email id, host, number of failed attemps allowed, device unlock method and enable/disable "save photo to gallery". Remember that GPS should be always enabled.
TectDroid is set in a sober layout that should certainly be enhanced. Likewise, we're missing more features like a web version for tracking in real-time the device location on a map or remote erasing of files. Despite of that is both a light and useful app that increase your device security.
