Losing your phone can be quite a problem these days. Smartphones are not just communication devices, like their ancestors used to be – they are our personal computers, storage space for our documents, contacts and memories. Lastly, but certainly not leastly, they cost a lot of money, and no one wants to lose money. This is why a lot of Android programmers attention is focused on creating pieces of software which help us find and get our phones back. In the list below, we will recommend you the apps which we consider to be the best in performing this task.

Commodo Anti Theft :

ALTThis app tracks your phones location over GPS and displays it with the help of Google Maps. It prides itself in being the Swiss army knife among the anti-theft apps, because it offers you a wide range of ways to discover where your missing smartphone is and protect the data on it until you recover it successfully. Using short text messages which you send to your phone (for example locate immediately followed by your password) you can regain control over the device and find it in no time.

Anti Theft Droid :

ALTThis free app is controlled through text messages you send to your phone and is able to do many things in order to help you find your phone and rescue it from the thieves. It features two ways to report on the location of the device – one using the NET approximate method, the other using standard GPS. A good thing about this app is that it can run silently and never affect your battery, so you can install it and forget about it (hopefully forever because that would mean your phone is never stolen).
