    If you're looking for an app that does more than locate your phone (e.g., backup, etc.), you could check out Lookout Mobile Security. It includes a seek function as well as backup utilities -- and it's free, too.

    Someone from the app market said seek droid doesn't work with juice defender on. Is this true?

    Lookout mobile security, if you pay for it, can also remote lock your phone or wipe its data. Also, it makes it so it can't be uninstalled without a password (don't know if the others do this).

    Why is seekdroid better than Lookout?

    All of the reviews of Lookout appear stellar:

    Well, SeekDroid does one thing. Lookout goes beyond what SeekDroid does. They're different products. I prefer Lookout now simply because it's one app that keeps track of my Infuse and also provides backups.

    I have SeekDroid installed and set up... but just read the review of Lookout. Gonna check it out. Looks good.

    sirdomino, from what I can see on the link you provided, this app only tracks the device. If that's right, it would be similar to SeekDroid. I've used SeekDroid and Lookout. I have now deleted SeekDroid and only use Lookout. Besides tracking, the backup functionality -- even in the free version -- is very good and satisfactory to my needs.

    I've had my phone for about 3 days now. The only Lookout I can find in the market is free. What am I missing?

    You download the free version and it gives you the full features for 14 days or so. In order to access various features like remote lock or alert you have to create an account on their website.

    After 14 days if you do not sign up to pay via their website, they disable the extra features. This still leaves you with the track, alert and backup features, just not the remote lock and some of the other features. But there is only one app you download.

    Actually, you can keep the free version with several features. The paid version is for additional features if you choose to add them. You can select only the freebies via Lookout's web site. That is the one I'm using and it's not costing me anything.

    Yeah Norton has it as well but Lookout does a better job detecting malware than Norton does.

    I was wondering about Norton. I use to use the pc version until it got so big and clunky. Is the mobile version lean, mean and any good?

    I've been using Prey for a while, and it's been working great. You can activate it via text message (or via Web in the paid version), after which point you can track it, lock it remotely, or make it emit a sound.

    I had both Lookout and SeekDroid. SD is a cool one to track and wipe the phone. Lookout charges for the wiping and it backs up your contacts, but that's not something you need since Google does it too. Too bad it costs money to back up your photos. I don't care about backing up my call log. Also, when Lookout scans a new app, the phone practically comes to a standstill. I hated that, plus it seemed to always be lurking in the backgound, so I disabled it.
