Wheres My Droid

Since we don't have phones anymore, but mini-computers in our pockets, losing them it's a drama. There are coming up thousand of security apps: backups, geolocation, apps lock, and many more. This is one of the most interesting we've tried regarding device losing.
It works this way: you have to set an "attention word". When you lose your device, the only thing you have to do is send a SMS with the attention word to enable the sound (if it's disabled), and make it ringing. Regarding GPS, you have to set also an attention word but it doesn't work if the GPS wasn't enabled before losing the device. That's a flaw since if we want to use this system we need to keep the GPS enabled the whole day. It would be better that the attention word could enable the GPS.
This is the basic performance. However, there are lots preferences to set to your whim: ring/vibrate when lost, use white noise siren, ring for 30s/60s/5min, set a passcode for the app, and much more.
Wheres My Droid has been developed by alienmanfc6, an emerging developer who's reaching great success specially thanks to this app. He has released another ones on the Android market though.
This is an app that you won't use everyday (and we hope you won't need to use it never). But you will love having it when you're in a hurry and you don't find your phone. Useful.

The app can also get the GPS coordinates with a link to Google maps if you're not near enough to your phone to hear the ringer. You have the freedom to track your phone from anywhere with a text messaged attention word or with our online Commander.
