Simply install the app, create a free account, and sign in. FoneHome runs in the background on your device (if your device supports multitasking), periodically transmitting its location to our servers. In the event your device is lost or stolen, sign into the FoneHome website and view its current location.
This is an app everyone should own to help them keep track of their expensive Apple devices. Get it now while it's cheap rather than regretting it later when you lose your device.
► Tracks your device in real time
► Updates your location periodically (10, 20, 30, 60, and 120 minute adjustable intervals)
► Stores your last 100 location updates
► Unobtrusive: runs in the background (on compatible devices) and requires no user intervention
► Auto-restarts anytime you reset the device. Set it up once and forget it!
► Power efficient - minimal impact on battery life
► Secure - all transmissions are encrypted using industry standards for the protection of your private information
► Send a push to your device containing a custom message with an optional sound to play and website to open on the device
Website Features (www.myfonehome.com):
► All data is stored on servers located in a secure data center
► View your device's current location, speed, battery status and IP address, as well as location history
► Activate a siren from the website that will play a sound on your device even if the ringer is off
► Send a push message to your device with a custom message of your choice. Let a person who finds your device know it is lost and how to get it back to you, or, if you suspect it has been stolen, send a message attempting to fool the thief. If he swipes to unlock the phone while your push message is on the screen, FoneHome will instantly send a position update allowing you to track it. You can optionally instruct the device to play a loud sound with the push message, useful for finding your device if it is lost in your house, or to alert those nearby the thief that your device has been stolen.
► Print a detailed report showing information about your device as well as its current location and approximate address. This report can be given to the police to aid them in recovering your device if it is stolen.
Notes on compatibility:
Runs on any device using OS 3.1 or above. On devices that do not support multitasking, FoneHome must be left running in the foreground in order to continuously track your device. Once FoneHome has been installed and registered on your device, you will be able to send a push message to your device at any time using the FoneHome website. If you send your device a push and someone swipes to unlock the device while the push is still on the screen, FoneHome will start up and transmit the device's position regardless of whether the app was previously running.
On devices without GPS capabilities (iPod touches and WiFi-only iPads), FoneHome determines the device's location using its Wi-Fi connection.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
What's New in Version 2.1.1

* Bug fixes
*** Please make sure to also update your device's operating system to the latest version through iTunes for bug fixes and stability improvements ***
I already used it to find my phone and it saved me a whole day of stress with wondering where I had it last! Well worth the price!!
My wife misplaced her iPhone the other day. Fortunately she left it at an honest persons place of business and all ended well...that time. After that, I started looking for solutions into the lost iPhone problem, and came across FoneHome. i was skeptical at first, but this app and website really does everything it says it will do. Being able to hear the siren even when the phone is set to silent mode is really cool, and I love the integration with Google Latitude. The best part is: NO subscription required. Well worth the $2.99. Should be on everybody's Must Have list.
