    I lost my phone last night and need to remotely install an app to find it. I tried Plan B but it isn't sending me my location so I assume it isn't installing properly (or working properly). Are there any similar app I can try?

    (FYI my phone is still one b/c we call it and it rings the normal amount before going to voicemail)

    If it's relevant, I'm running Wizard's MIUI on my Droid X from Verizon.

    I know you can INSTALL an app from the Play Store, but you can't RUN it. If it's not running, you won't be able to benefit from it.

    Well I've done a bit of looking. Plan B and AndroidLost are both designed to be able to start remotely. Unfortunately, neither of them has worked. I click install and it acts like it's trying to install. I can log out and log back in and the apps then allow me to click "install" again, meaning that they haven't been installed.
