    My wife has the iPhone 5. One day she came home and dropped her phone outside her car. It started snowing hard and while she thought she just left it at work I thought I would give the ”find my iPhone " app a shot. Location showed outside our place! Went outside and saw a pinkish lump in the snow. Thankfully she had the otterbox defender and all was well. If it weren't for this app it would have been plowed away literally an hour later and 700 bucks saved.

    I cannot for the life of me find any app even close to the iPhone app

    Google can't be serious and not have an app like this can they?

    There are a few. I use Lookout Security and Antivirus. I don't care about the antivirus, but it will find your phone. Showed my wifes phone on the outside of my house like your wifes iPhone. And if you can't find your phone, you can go online and make it "scream". Even if your phone is set on vibrate, it will make a really loud siren sound until you find it and stop it. I've had to use it twice. You can hear out all over the house. Totally with a download and it's free.

    Cerberus. Live Google maps integration plus it will make your phone take pictures of you tell it to, if the lock code is entered wrong, when the alarm time is shut off... Etc. $4 buys a lifetime license that can be used on up to 4 or 5 phones. Check it out on the market.

    Does the swearing scare the phone to revealing its hiding spot?:D

    lookout mobile security can do it, can even turn the phone sound on and emit a siren from the phone, I believe it can also post messages on the screen letting someone know you are looking for it and know where they are. plus other features.

    I spent quite a bit of time trying to find a droid app comparable to the iPhone app. I am using Lookout also, best I have found.

    Yes there are multiple apps that will do this. I use Lookout Mobile myself, I've tested but never "had to use it".
