Where Is My Android ? Wima
If you are like some people and lose your phone in the couch (not that I would know) you can use WIMA to help you find it. “Where’s My Droid is a free Android application that helps users recover their lost phones. This app innovatively uses text messaging to achieve its purpose. You can assign a text word which, when sent to your phone, will play the phone’s ringtone. The duration this tone will be played for can be setup while assigning the text word. The ringtone will be played even if your phone is on silent or vibrate mode. This method will be a great help if your phone is somewhere nearby and all you need to find it is to hear it.” There is also GPS functionality if your phone is indeed lost and not just hiding in your couch, car, purse, coat pocket etc.
If your phone goes missing and a honest person finds it this app will provide them a way to contact you to give it back. ” It’s a very simple app that will display your name on the unlock screen of your phone, an alternate phone number and email address for anyone who finds your phone to contact.” There were recommendations made for using a Google Voice number as your alternate if you don’t have one.
