This is a discussion on The best anti-theft/lost app for you? within the Nexus One Application Discussion forums, part of the Nexus One category; Thanks! Just sent an email to see if I can become a tester....
Lookout is pretty good. In Australia, I used it to find my device within 0 feet. The web UI takes about 2 mins to find the phone with accuracy of 0 feet. Be patient.
I went to the lookout site and went ahead and entered my number... received a text with a link to the marketplace to download app... since its already downloaded the only two options given were uninstall or open... when I click open it takes me to the menu that got me here: "Missing Device Ready" - tells me to go to mylookout.com (which of course is where I went to enter my number and received the txt msg
I'm going around in circles... The application is working - it scans downloads and all that... I just can't figure out how to set up the "Locate your device or make it scream" functions...
Ron Paul is correct.
i use wavesecure it was free for life for anyone who started using it before march 31, lookout is good for anyone not looking for media backup, if you do try wavesecure, it will backup pictures, music and videos. but the best thing to do is have both just in case you have problems with one of them. just to let everyone know, wavesecure is $19.90 per year now.
If you have a rooted phone, you can load WaveSecure into the system partition so it will survive a hard reset.
Also, for users with non-rooted phones, WaveSecure UPA (Uninstall Protection Add-on) is available from Android Market now. While it won't survive a hard reset, it will protect your data and privacy.
^^^ lookout does too right?
Even though I still cant figure out how to do anything from their site... I enter the info, they send me a link to download an app I already have *roll eyes*
Ron Paul is correct.
So after reading this thread, I'll probably grab one of these, but can some one clarify..
Mobile Defense and LookOut are free but do not backup pictures/etc
WaveSecure costs 20/year, but does back that up.
Seems like over all WaveSecure is more feature complete, other then price is there any reason to prefer Mobile Defense or Lookout to it?
With any of them, can I turn on the scream at any given time? I misplace my phone in my house often and GPS wont help with that... scream would though.
My Nexus one should arrive tomorrow :D :D
