    Looking for an Android 'Find My Phone' App
    Looking for a good, stable "Find My Phone" app for Droid 2.1, preferably free. Would also prefer one that has been professionally developed, vs something out of a garage.

    The best one I have found so far is Lookout. Free basic version, Screams phone, Shows location on PC or other smart-phone using Google Maps, Turns on GPS if off. Has backup and anti-virus features as well.

    I like "Where's My Droid" because it actually lists an address, but the developer seems like he could just disappear tomorrow.

    I have not yet tried any of these myself.

    I'll be keeping an eye on this thread as I have a Magic and this app sounds useful. The app would have to running all the time I assume, I hope it doesn't use up too many resources.

    Here is the link to "Lookout":

    Check out the FAQs in Support Section. They cover just about everything. Very useful.

    The app does run all the time. It is the only app I have seen that can turn on your GPS if disabled.

    (Thanks for the hint on getting back to old AMHD format)
