App has success stories
The Find My iPhone application is proving to be a helpful crime fighting tool but it won’t always save the day, police warn.
The application acts like a GPS system which means iPhone or iPad owners can log in on another device to find out where it is and if it’s lost or stolen.
Similar applications are available for other smartphones.
Craig Edwards is one of the technology’s success stories.
His partner’s car was broken into at One Tree Hill in January and among the things stolen was her iPhone.
Caution: Relying on the Find My iPhone application to get your phone back if it’s lost or stolen might not be the safest bet.
