Hi
Just wondered how many of you use apps to protect against theft or loss of android.
1.Apps to prevent theft - apps that make a sound when moved like 'Antitheft Alarm','Alarm Antitheft Alarm Screen Lock'.etc
2.Apps that prevent loss or misplacement - apps that locate a phone through GPS like 'WAY GPS Tracking','Lookout' , 'Comodo','PreyProject','Where?s my Droid,etc
3.apps to locate phone if stolen by locking the phone,locating it,taking cam pictures - similar as No 2 apps like 'Where?s my Droid','Locate lost Phone' and apps like 'Prey Project','Lookout?s Lockcam feature','Thief face trap mini',etc

Any other ideas or better ideas? Thanks

I personally use Cerberus, it does all of that really well

It looks impressive. But am I right in assuming it is perfect if it is stolen except that it doesn't capture pictures (only records audio) .That feature is useful even if you misplace your phone away from earsight. Secondly lacks the antitheft alarm.

I like Lookout because they're well-respected and the app runs smoothly, with less battery drain than when I tried Avast. The lock cam feature is nice. And it's free--at least for the features that I'm interested in.

No it can capture pictures as well, it just needs a rooted device
