Avast Anti-Theft is a cell phone tracking app that helps aid in the recovery of a lost device. GPS location settings allow you to see where it is, take control of it, and turn it off if need be.
The location feature is very accurate. Every time it got the phone's location to within meters. This is a great way to make sure your phone always stays by your side. Being able to listen and record video from wherever the phone is is quite a nice touch.
The text-to-lock function didn't seem to work, at least not on the first try. It takes quite a while for the location to populate. It could use a better tutorial or instruction set. Initial use doesn't come off very intuitive. The alarm siren blared out of nowhere on one occasion.
