How is it Useful ?
Specially for wives who want to trace the location of their husband [will show the current location on a map – image below] . The location is determined based on two techniques . Iphone and Ipad that come with GPS get the exact co-ordinates of the devices shown on Google Maps . Ipod Touch 4 gets location information based on less precise WiFi , by locating the nearest Base Station .
The down side of this technique is that , you must have a nearby WiFi Transmitting station to locate your device .
Find My Iphone can also be used if you have lost the phone somewhere in your room and is set at silent mode . The app will then play a loud sound for two minutes . This app will also do a Remote Lock and Remote Wipe in case you have lost the phone and have a message display on it [ like ” This phone is lost , call me at this number 123-91- ” etc .. ] .
Find My Iphone is compatible to run on both Iphone and Ipad running on iOS 4.2.
