    Question Phone Locater App(s)

    Is anyone using a phone locater app? Any cons to them (ex: battery drain). What are some highly rated ones?

    I love PhoneLocator Pro!
    Link--> https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...=com.rvo.plpro

    A couple years ago when my Nexus S was stolen he popped his SIM in which automatically sent me:
    -its GPS location (across the street from my office)
    -his picture (snapped from the front-facing camera)
    -his SIM info (including his #)

    He then proceeded to Factory Reset it...but I had rooted it (and installed it as a "System" App) so it survived!
    I then proceeded to:
    -listen-in on him
    -went to his location

    That's where the "fun" began using my backup phone...
    -waited for him in the lobby
    -locked him out
    -posted a message on-screen
    -forced it to ring at full volume "the Dancing Hamsters" song
    As he fumbled through his bag I approached him to retrieve my phone.
    He was baffled but learned then & there the power of Android!

    And no, we didn't scuffle or anything like that. We weren't in an alley - we were both in business suits so to not cause a scene in his office lobby it went smoothly.
    I turned around, tossed his SIM in the trash (he forgot to remove it) & walked away.

    By far the best 5$ I ever spent!
