Where's your phone?

It's your birthday, and you decide to hit happy hour after work. Later, after you get home, you realize you don't have your iPhone. Did you leave your iPhone at work? At the bar? Sound familiar? Remember the panic you felt when you reached into your empty pocket or bag? With PhoneRecover, you can just visit https://phonerecover.com/ and see your iPhone's location. Use PhoneRecover to help you locate your iPhone and set your mind at ease.

You can also use PhoneRecover to see where your kids are (if they have their iPhones with them).

- Log all day without draining your battery. PhoneRecover automatically and efficiently logs your location as you move by taking advantage of the new multitasking features found in iOS4 on the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4. PhoneRecover runs on other devices, though it may not automatically log in the background or provide as accurate locations without GPS.

- Locate your iPhone even after it has been restarted. PhoneRecover will automatically restart after a reboot on the iPhone 3GS and the iPhone 4 running iOS4.

- Protect your privacy. PhoneRecover transfers your location data over encrypted SSL connections, so you don't have to worry about others listening in. Using OAuth, location updates are cryptographically signed to prevent spoofing. OAuth allows the client to log in without storing usernames or passwords on the phone and allows website passwords to be changed without having to log out and log in on the iPhone.

- Lock the PhoneRecover app with a passcode. Prevent unauthorized users from changing your settings.

- Option to have your iPhone check in regularly. With the option enabled, your iPhone will log a location roughly every 10 minutes even if you are not moving. This provides better data at the expense of battery life. Not recommended for models prior to the iPhone 4.

- Send your iPhone a message or an alert. Use it to provide alternative contact information or offer an award.

- PhoneRecover comes with 3 months included. Your subscription can be extended from within the app.

Though PhoneRecover helps track your iPhone, we cannot guarantee that will will be returned to you. But luck favors the prepared.

PhoneRecover works best with an unlimited data plan. Use may incur data transfer charges from your provider. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

It works, without much battery drain!

I've been using this over the weekend, on an iPhone4. It works as advertised. Even with the "Log in Periodically" and "Improved GPS" options turned on, the drain on my battery is minimal--at the end of the day, I'm only a few percentage points of battery usage down more than without Phonerecover. I like the .csv export file of where my phone's been; if I lost the phone, that would be a great help towards recovering the device.

My only 'do betters' are: Is it possible to remove the "GPS" icon on the top time bar? Not a biggie, I know, but still ;-) Also, on the export file: other than download and remove them myself, is there a way to allow it to show only the more accurate coordinates (not show the 500' ones)?

I like this app--it works far better than Apple's own program (which never worked on any of my previous phones), at a far more reasonable price: .99 for the app +the subscription fee for monitoring ($20/2years) versus $99/year for MobileMe.

Great app, thanks again!

4/5 stars

Great alternative to MobileMe

Great app, especially on the iPhone 4. Provides the one function of MobileMe that I really wanted but charges way less than $99/yr! Awesome! Recommended.
