    "I thought all hope was lost when my daughter lost her phone on a field trip. They stopped multiple places so there was no telling where it slipped out of her bag. My friend Susie mentioned this app to me and we tried it out of desperation. It turns out she left it at home all along! We got lucky but i'm definitely keeping this app handy just in case this happens again for any of our phones."
