This is one handy piece of software to have if you are an iPhone/iPad owner. A few months back I accidentally left my iPhone on the bed rail of my truck and drove off heading for a bike ride. When I got to where I was going I went to fire up the MapMyRide app and noticed that I had misplaced my iPhone. Shock, horror and dismay set in immediately as I knew I had it when I was loading up my bike to head out. I back tracked all the way home and looked in the drive way and there was nothing. I fired up the Find My iPhone App and located it immediately in the middle of the Hwy I took to get to where I was going to ride. It put me within 100 ft. of the iPhone as it laid in the middle if the road face down. Smashed and run over, it amazingly still worked but was unusable. Using a friends iPhone I called my phone and found it. The black iPhone matched the asphalt road and with a massively cracked screen it because even more camouflaged.
Needless to say I cannot recommend Find My iPhone enough! What’s better is that today the App gets updated to version 2.0.1 that includes:
• Driving directions to device location (iOS 6 or later)
• Play Sound, Lost Mode, and Erase buttons appear separately from map view
Head on over to the App store and update or download. you never know when you might need it.
