A question you may ask at times with your phones, tablets, and other web devices. Especially when districts begin to look at providing them to students to take home. So I came across the free app Where’s My Droid (http://sites.google.com/site/alienmanfc6/wheresmyandroid). What you do is download the app, go through some settings, and then when you lose your phone, you text two phrases, either Where’s My Droid or GPS My Droid. It will turn on the ringer or else turn on the GPS and send you a Google Map link back. WOW! So I tried it, and it works as advertised. I texted both messages, and it rang and sent me a Google Map link. The link showed my folks neighborhood (I was on vacation there at the time) within a block. Not exactly where the phone was, but the point is to confirm, ‘yes, I left it at the mall…or at work…or at the park.’ A great app.
Now I will try it on my tablet. I do not think that will work without the phone number and GPS, but it may be close. That would benefit all these schools deploying tablets. A great feature and a must download. You can download it free, but I would suggest a donation to keep the developing add more features to an already good app!
