This app has saved me multiple times. Only two of those times were actual theft type situations. One was at work where I had to get the assistance of admins and the other was at a restaurant where I walked around crying about the pics on my phone and someone eventually felt guilty enough to turn it in - I wanted to save the "gotcha" features as a last resort. The GPS location is crazy-accurate and fast (as long as your phone's settings enable it). Only downside is that some of the newer phones don't support certain features; you can email WMD support about it, I just haven't. Some of the super-useful features are only available with a paid subscription - rightfully so - which is something I'm about to do. I haven't tried other similar apps; this was just the one I DL'd first and it was the right choice. Easy to use, easy to understand, effective service, and I definitely recommend it. I also think paying for the upgrade is worth it, if it's in your budget. And it's really inexpensive for what you get. Skip that one value burger at a fast food joint and sign up.

Used to be great. However, under the guise of "Google made changes to how text messages work in new versions of Android" they pulled text message support for all versions of Android. Also, poor design for adding devices means that if you're at your three device limit you cannot even remove a device to swap in your new one, you're forced to find a computer to do it. Commander is so clunky and slow. Still useful when you need it, but no longer great.

Best invention ever. I have been using it since my Droid 2 maybe 7 or so years ago. Even if I don't have someone to text my phone I can just go to the online website and have it ping my phone! I love it! My husband lost his phone down a storm drain once and only found it because of the GPS location and the never ending ring. It doesn't matter if your phone is on silent, it only doesn't work if it is in airplane mode, but it works the second it comes out of airplane mode. Well, that is true at least with the free version. I am unsure about the upgrade version sadly.
