About this app

This app requires an Amazon Alexa device and the Skill "Phone Finder"!

Can't find one of your android devices? It's on silent? Alexa saves you: your device will ring with full volume and vibrate.

This App has to be connected to the Alexa Skill "Phone Finder". This is really simple:

1. Install the Skill on your Alexa device. Say "Alexa, activate Phone Finder". Alternatively, use the Alexa App to do that
2. Open up the skill. Say: "Alexa, open Phone Finder" and request to add a new device
3. Alexa will tell you your personal PIN code
4. Open the Android App and enter the PIN code
5. Your status becomes "Active". Done!

If you like, you can set an alarm tone. Then, you can ask any of your Alexa devices (on the same user account) to find your Android device. If your device is online, it will quickly start to ring loudly and vibrate.

Repeat these steps for any additional device you want to add. You can add up to two. Connect your phones, tablets and smart watches and never worry about losing them again!


Commands for the Alexa Skill:

Search for device by device-number:
"Alexa, open Phone Finder and find two"
"Alexa, open Phone Finder and search for phone two"
"Alexa, ask Phone Finder to find device one"

Search for device (if multiple devices connected, Alexa lists them first):
"Alexa, open Phone Finder and find my phone"
"Alexa, ask Phone Finder to find my device"


Add a new device:
"Alexa, start Phone Finder and add a new device"
"Alexa, open Phone Finder and connect my phone"

Remove an existing device:
"Alexa, start Phone Finder and remove my phone"
"Alexa, start Phone Finder and disconnect my tablet"

Ask for the PIN code:
"Alexa, ask Phone Finder for my code"
"Alexa, open Phone Finder and give me my PIN"

Works well with Alexa for one device, so I upgraded to the pro version. No matter how carefully we entered the codes, the app always rang only one phone -- meaning it was wrong half the time. That's a fail. The app itself is inadequate, with nothing by way of settings that could correct phone identity issues. I cancelled the upgrade and will look elsewhere.

HI John. Please shoot me a mail to pf@data-dive.com I'll be glad to figure out your issue. It seems, that you misunderstood something. You need to install the Android App on both of your phones and use a new code that Alexa gives you. Then, you will have no problems finding each of your phones. This procedure is describes in the App description

works exactly as it says. and when it asks for a seven digit PIN remember, you wrote it down on installation. I was confused but then I read documentation and saw exactly how it works, again :-) thank you for sharing this skill with everyone

Alexa's default "find my phone" doesn't find your phone on silent, because the call comes in from a unknown number so no way whitelist it. This app does work. It's a bit clunky saying "open phone finder and find my phone", but hey, I'm just glad it works.
