Theft Aware

Link: http://www.theftaware.com/

There are some great features in this software and was testing it out last night and all worked as well as I expected.

One of the features I really like is the ability to enable the siren to scare the living daylights out of the person that took or stole your phone.
The call back feature is really good for being able to listen to what they are saying, you just send the command and your phone will ring you back, it's like magic.
There are sooo many features and customisations that it is hard to know where to start.

It has the ability to be able to retrieve sms messages off the phone and you can even specify how many you want to retrieve, along with that is the ability to get sms messages that have been sent from the phone.
Since I had already rooted my phone it was tightly integrated and the thief would not be able to uninstall the software without the pin number that you specify.
I tried out the positioning and was very accurate, I was walking around the backyard and it was following me. Was using another smart phone to track it and was very easy to use.
At a cost of less than $15, I think it has very good potential to people that are in the know with their phones.

People that are not to tech savy may struggle a bit with the installation and settings but still should be very manageable for everyone to install and setup.
I did the install as service and don’t know about the way of installing it, but I’m sure it is even easier than the rooted phone option..
All in all a very good product that I hope goes a long way and has lots of support.
Job well done.
