SUMMARY: Turn your Android phone to loud from any setting just by sending a text message

Check out, because your kids deserve the very best educational apps!

Force Ring is an app for the Android platform that adds an amazing function to your device. This app helps you find your cell phone when you’ve left it on vibrate and can’t locate it.

This app is very simple and that’s a good thing. Basically, all it does is turn your cell phone to loud from whatever setting you left it on, just by sending a text message. The text message does have to include the specific word you’ve set it to recognize. You can change the word to whatever you like and even get this app to automatically start when you turn on your phone and even show an icon in your notification bar.

Once you’ve configured everything and have successfully lost your phone, all you need to do is grab any phone and text the secret word over to your phone. Once you do that, call your phone and it will start ringing nice and loud. This makes finding your phone a lot easier then hoping you left it on vibrate at a minimum and listening in for the buzzing sound.

Considering how often people lose their phone, we’re going to say that this is hands down a must have app. You won’t use it all the time but when you do need it it’s amazing to have. Just don’t forget the secret word and remember to change it after you text it from your friends phone or you could wind up with them turning your phone on loud and calling you when you’re in awkward locations.
