Protect Your iPhone And iPad With GadgetTrack

PCWorld: Protect Your iPhone And iPad With GadgetTrack

GadgetTrack, a $4 app for iOS, transmits location of stolen iPhones and iPads, and a $1 upgrade adds the ability on camera-equipped devices to photograph a person who turns on your device and send you the picture.

The small size and portability of the iPhone, iPod touch, and even the iPad makes them easy targets for thieves. Leave one unattended for a moment on a table in a public place, or allow your bag to sit out of view for a few minutes, and your device may find its way into other hands.

“While you can’t trigger a remote electrical charge to punish the malefactor who took your iOS device, you do have an opportunity to track it down, so long as you install software ahead of time. GadgetTrak, a $4 universal app, can help you recover an errant piece of mobile hardware. A separate $1 in-app purchase lets you opt to snap pictures (front and rear) on capable devices if the possessor is convinced to open the app. You can use GadgetTrak on any number of devices synced using the same iTunes account.”
