The first find your phone app on the Android Market continues to get better and better. Now with more features it is easier then ever to track down your missing phone.
Where’s My Droid can turn the ringer volume up and make your phone ring. The app can also get the GPS coordinates with a link to Google maps if you’re not near enough to your phone to hear the ringer. You have the freedom to track your phone from anywhere with a text messaged attention word.

The app does work with Go SMS Pro and Handcent, it just requires a workaround that can be viewed on our website. We are currently working with Go SMS Pro to make a permanent fix.
For those of you having problems uninstalling the app, you just need to remove the app as a ‘Device Admin’. That can be done from the phones system security menu.
