1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I know this question may have been answered elsewhere in this forum but I have yet to find it. I was hoping someone could tell me the name of the app that was featured in the droid commercial that tracks your phone if it is lost or stolen. I just made the switch from the iPhone to Droid and am loving the new OS but I want to make sure I can get my phone back to me in the event that it goes missing. Thanks.

    I think lookout has that feature but I've heard some people say that the location isn't super accurate.

    It should be as accurate as whatever is the most accurate method of locating your device that is enabled. In other words, if you disable GPS then it won't have GPS accuracy.

    Or are you alleging that the app adds inaccuracy somehow?

    Lookout is the one in the commercial.

    I have the City ID app.
    Someone called me from a spoofed number, claiming they were calling from New York, but my Caller ID displayed a different location (including an area code) from Orlando, FL.
    This same person called me claiming they were using a calling card, however my ID showed their location was displayed as being in Tampa, FL. Where he lives.

    I use lookout. You can test the accuracy yourself by logging into your Lookout account from your computer. It will show you where your phone is. Recently, there was a guy whos car was stolen. His phone was in the car and he had Lookout on it. He called the police and logged into his Lookout account. He led the cops right to the car in under 7 minutes! He got his car and his phone back. Thats close enough for me!

    Mobile Defense

    Mobile Defense works great and allows you to lock and make changes remote.


    Real-time tracking, remote locking, and more!

    I am unable to locate Mobile Defense in the app store.
    I used it on my original Droid and loved it.
    Any ideas on where to find it?
