There are a mul­ti­tude of apps avail­able that help you find your phone via GPS, the most re­li­able of which likely come from the hand­set’s man­u­fac­turer, but know­ing which street your phone is on isn’t very use­ful if you’ve lost it some­where in your room. From the mak­ers of Clap To My Find My Phone (which sucks by the way, don’t even bother) comes Whis­tle To Find My Phone, an app that does what it says on the tin. You can ad­just how your phone will re­spond to the whis­tle, ac­ti­vat­ing flash­lights, sounds, vibrations, light­ing up your dis­play, and any com­bi­na­tion of the afore­men­tioned chaos. There are some gen­uinely use­ful set­tings such as sched­ul­ing your phone not to ac­ti­vate the de­tec­tion at cer­tain hours, cer­tain days or when hooked up to a charger (be­cause you can pre­sum­ably find it when it’s plugged into a wall) and the phone does seem to re­spond to a whis­tle fairly con­sis­tently. While the app seems rea­son­ably in­of­fen­sive, the per­mis­sions re­quired are a lit­tle in­va­sive, your mi­cro­phone will need to re­main on, and you will be served a good amount of ads.
