FEA­TURED

Find My iPhone (Pre­in­stalled on iOS) This app has saved my tail more times than I can count. One time I lost my iPhone in a wicker bas­ket at the lo­cal thrift store (still not sure how that hap­pened) and, af­ter open­ing Find my iPhone in iCloud, I was shown ex­actly where my phone was and was even able to lock it with a pass­code and leave a mes­sage on its screen in case some­one dis­cov­ered it be­fore I could. You can also trig­ger a two-minute-long sound on your phone if you've lost it in your couch cush­ions or cab­i­nets (guilty) and even wipe all of your data if you know your phone's been stolen. You may not re­al­ize you need this app now, but trust me when I say it's a great in­vest­ment for later down the road.
