    So I left the house this morning without my 360. First time I've done that since I bought it. When I forget my phone (like I almost did Monday), my watch alerts me to the fact. Is there a reverse app that will give you a notification if you forget your smart watch?

    I half considered going home to get it. Still might.................

    I'm sure you're smart enough to have searched the play store, but I just did so myself and the only apps I'm seeing alert you via the watch when you forget your phone.

    That would be a handy feature to have. I know that notification about being connected to the watch changes on the phone to let you know how long before it tries again to connect, but there's no audible alert or vibration.

    Yeah, I had no luck either. Which is why I asked. I am too busy at work to write my own or I would.

    Find My Phone Android Wear - Android Apps on Google Play

    Feature was just added to the PAY version of this app.

    EDIT/ Could be the best $2 I ever spent on an Android app.

    EDIT2/ Looking at Changelog, it apparently was added 2 version ago...

    I have not had time to install that app yet (working 13 hour days right now), but might have to put that on the " to do" list after reading this...new features seem worth the $

    The free version is pretty adequate. Can't hurt to try it first.

    Don't remember which thread we were discussing find my phone apps.
    Sajo mentioned he has a different Find My Phone app in his phone. We assumed it was because he has Android Device Manager in his phone.
    Well...that's not it. I also have a new Find My Phone app that I didn't install. Did we get it with the last update? Johnny, do you have it?
    And didn't we also talk about what if Google did a find my phone app? Yep....stuck with it on the phone. No way to remove. And the app I already have is much better.
    And speaking "Find my Phone" no longer works because there are 2 apps with the same wake words.
    *Sigh....

    The second one with the green symbol is ADM. That's the only find my phone style app that I have available on my watch & phone.
