Where’s My Droid, also known as Sherlock Droid, this app is an indispensable tool for anyone with a Droid. You can use it to track down your lost or stolen phone, wipe out any sensitive data on the device before it falls into the wrong hands, and remotely locate your droid using GPS.
Find Your Phone
If you’ve ever lost your phone (or had it stolen), you know how frustrating it can be trying to find where you left the thing. Sure, there are plenty of apps that will help you find an iPhone or Android phone if they're nearby with GPS functionality enabled, but what do you do if someone just takes off with it? Happens more often than most people think….
Normally, when a phone is stolen, the owner can usually get a SIM card from the thief and use the same phone to track where the phone has gone. But what about an Android device with no SIM card, no Google account, and no prior information?
Block and Wipe Out Data
Now, you can contact your service provider and have them block the device's IMEI number so it won't allow calls to be made, but I feel like that might alert someone to the fact that you're looking for the phone. Plus, any savvy crook knows how easy it is to get a new SIM card and start making calls again.
If you're using an Android phone without a GSM (generally used in Europe and Asia), then there is no easy way to spring into action and retrieve it. You can't get a new SIM card; even if you did, your version of Android is locked down tight.
Besides, even if you’re not able to use GPS or other tracking features of your device (like Find My iPhone), at least you can remotely wipe out all the sensitive information (and hopefully back up your contacts and calendar data).
Thousands of Commands
This app comes with more than 2000 different commands to help you locate your phone. I'm happy to say that the developers of Find My iPhone give their users some pretty good commands that aren't accessible by all Android devices. You can use AT+CSCW (command + CID) on some Android phones to get access to commands like lock/to unlock, reboot, shutdown, and factory reset. This is not always available on all devices, but on some older ones, this works beautifully.
