    "Not a bad alternative to the original Find My Phone for iPhone as there is no native alternative, but as it is not native, it is not so good unfortunately"

    "Creepy stalker app or the solution to riding your bike around the neighborhood looking for your friends old school style? Both!! I love that you can toggle the friend finder on and off so if you don't want them to find you they can't but if you want to meetup, bam, there it is. "

    "Who hasn't misplaced their iPhone before and sweated bullets about where it could be? I know I have and I'm constantly in a panic state when it happens. I've tried to use the built in find my phone feature on my iPhone, and while it does a straight forward job of telling you where it is, it's not too specific down to details. I searched for an alternative and came across an app, for iOS of course, that seem to be exactly what I was searching for. Prey Anti Theft is really thorough when it comes to finding a misplaced or lost phone. This app is 100% free or you can upgrade to the premium, but the free download is quite powerful as it is. I like having the ability to track my device from a single account simply by using my web panel. Now my favorite feature about this in the event that my iPhone goes missing is the ability to snap a picture of the offender. I've seen that the Android version does a silent photo capture, but in iOS photos can't be taken by an app alone without any user interaction. What Prey Anti Theft does is create a trap push notification claiming to be about some billing information that pops up. Now the moment the offender taps it the notification to close it, bingo! He's been capture in photo for me to turn over to authorities. Simply brilliant! The Geolocation on the app is very accurate it centers down the location and helps me narrow down the area. If it isn't clear enough and I have to do more detective work on my own, Prey Anti Theft will also give me local WiFi networks that it picks up. So if it's any familiar areas I can really trace down the location it's near. I can also remotely wipe my phone if necessary too. Overall this is probably my favorite find my phone type of app for my iPhone on iOS. "
