    uLocate the makers of the popular GPS based Where App has provided a great way to track Verizon Droids as they leave the shelves of Verizon, Bestbuy, Walmart, and other stores and into the hands of happy (hopefully) customers. Once installed it tracks a small bit of information such as model of phone and geographical location and reports back to the maker. The app can be downloaded from the Android Market and does some cool stuff. Oh and the best part, it's free!

    "WHERE is a bundle of cool GPS apps all wrapped into one. Are you looking for the hottest restaurants, jonesing for your next coffee fix, or need a cheap fill-up? Maybe you want to know the local weather, traffic or headlines? Whatever you are after, WHERE has it."

    According to uLocate, the top Droided cities are:

    * New York, NY
    * Los Angeles, CA
    * Washington, DC
    * San Francisco, CA
    * Philadelphia, PA
    * Baltimore, MD
    * Boston, MA
    * Chicago, IL
    * Riverside, CA
    * Phoenix, AZ

    There is a Gas Prices option within Where! You can preset the fuel type you are interested in and it will give you the prices of that fuel around you and the distance to it :)

    Just installed it, looks like a handy app. I couldn't figure out how to show the location of Droids near me though.

    Why would I want to let anyone know where my phone is?

    You personally may not, it is simply a fun app for people to see how many other droids are out there.

    LOL yeah this app is not really "Amazing"... So what that it broadcasts your\your droid location to the world? And "They" know where you are is right... But now so do "I" :p

    Presumably anonymous "there's a Droid here at X location" data? Harmless.

    If that map means anything, it looks like my home area (Northeast Ohio/Cleveland/Akron/Canton) is pretty well represented.

    Disappointed in the small amount in Houston, but at least I'm one of them. NE area looks amazing though, way to go.

    Here is a funny about people knowing where you are

    I was in the movie theater today and forgot to put my phone on vib. I got a text (the notifier is the "DROID" talking) message during one of the quite moments in the movie. I didn't get any bad looks or "shhhhh" but I did get some looks and "cool"s. I even had two people come up to me after the movie wanting to see my phone. It was too funny.

    I LOVE this phone!!!!! Bye bye blackberry!!!

    Can someone do quick instructions on how to see where the other droids are around you?

    I'm trying to figure it out, I guess I'm too old and technology is getting to advanced.

    Please help.

    Is there a way to show Droids location on the app or just on the website? I have been digging around in the app and not finding anything. I hope there is, would be cool to see how many droids are local.
