    Have you ever lost your phone? Ever had one stolen? Do you worry about these things? What if you could recover your phone? Now you can...

    You must first register at whereismypre.com. Once you've registered, enter the information into the app on your phone and you're done. Make sure GPS services are turned ON, and Google location services OFF for best results. You can then view your location on the map on the site.

    Password is case sensitive. Username is not.

    Validate your login before you close the app. And make sure you swipe the app away when you're done. It only uploads when it's running in the background.

    The ipk is attached. Don't forget to vote if you like the app.

    The question on everyone's mind is whether it has the ability to run in the background as a headless app or service. Also, have you monitored any battery impact with the use of this?

    Can we also get a better description on how this works? Does the app send GPS data to the website at intervals or does it create a "push system" where the website pulls the GPS data from the phone if you request it on the website?

    What is there a deadline for when you will choose beta testers? I would love to test this out.

    then least you could do is click the "Thanks" button.

    Completely in the background. This is part of several security features which are still being refined. If your phone gets stolen, you don't want someone to be able to just turn the service off.

    As far as battery affect: update interval by default is 20 minutes. It only sends the location to the site if you've moved since the last update, which saves battery life. I have it running on my Pre 24/7, and my phone has never come close to not making it through a full day (unplug at 6am - plug in at 11pm).

    I hope this answers your questions

    Indeed it does. I'll see if I can get some statistical data (aka percentages) on battery impact.

    Does the service startup with the Pre or do you have to run the app everytime you want the service to start?

    Right now it should start up with the phone. However I haven't been able to fully test that feature yet. If someone could do some testing and let me know then we can get it working for sure. I know it's possible as I've done it on other applications.

    Only 2 spots left for beta testing at the time of this post.

    It's all based on the GPS device in the phone. If you are outside it will obviously locate better. And the accuracy will increase after a couple of fixes. There is not much we developers can do to improve the fixed hardware capabilities, unfortunately

    invalid credentials.hmm

    question: what is the wake device and always upload options?

    If you need your password PM'd to you, please PM me with your email address and username you used to register. That should take care of the 'Invalid Credentials'.

    There is a FAQ on the site (here) outlining those options. Basically, you want wake device ON and always upload OFF.

    Registered and running, 13 minutes now. Still awaiting my first map hit.

    All GPS locations app are dependent on the phone's ability to create that data. If the phone cannot get a GPS fix, but a cell tower trianglation then it will give what it can for the general area that you are in. This is what happened in your case.

    Could I request a beta tester registration later in the day? I'm currently at school and the blocker blocks the website sadly so I am unable to register.
