Android: We’ve featured a few different methods and apps for finding your lost phone. With the $1.02 Seek Droid, however, you can locate your device, remotely lock it, wipe it and even see your recent calls with almost no effort.
Whether you’ve lost your phone in your house and it’s on silent, or you’ve left it somewhere in the city with no inkling as to where it may be, Seek Droid has you covered. Even if you didn’t have GPS turned on when you lost the phone, you can remotely turn GPS on from Seek Droid’s web interface, locate your device, send an alarm or message to the phone in case someone’s found it, and even wipe it just in case. Not that you’ll need to, since you’ve secured your phone with a lock pattern, right?.
You can also hide the app from the app drawer and keep it from being uninstalled, so you won’t ever lose its location. You can even grab your recent calls so you can keep up to date with your contacts while you work on getting your phone back. Setup is extremely simple — you just install it, set up your code, and that’s it! The rest is done from the simple web interface, which requires minimal registration to use — you don’t even need an email address. There’s no reason you shouldn’t have this on your phone.
Seek Droid is a $1.02 download for Android devices.
