iLostFinder – A Better Alternative to iGotya
The best app to locate a lost or stolen iPhone has always been a topic for discussion, with quite a large number of users sticking to their top anti-theft app, usually iGotya. However, what if I told you about an app better than iGotya/iCaughtU with reasons for its record as the undisputed anti-theft, iPhone tracking app? The said app is none other than iLostFinder anti-theft app.
While iGotya app is a so-called pretty cool anti-theft app that promises it can deliver some features (now seen in almost all anti-theft apps), like the taking a snapshot of the thief, tracking the location of the device, and even locking the device, users of the app still complain that some of the promised features don’t work as stated and others complain that the app doesn’t get updated. There are many iGotya users complaining that iGotya app download does not always work, and does not send email of the taken photos successfully. What’s worse, all these problems didn’t get solved instantly by its tech support.
iGotya app seems to be in the same boat, as some users complain of the app’s high CPU usage (upto 70% CPU usage as reported by a redditor).
iLostFinder isn’t just a better iGotya alternative with better features, the app has quite a few aces up its sleeve. The developers of the iLostFinder put in precautionary measures to avoid the phone getting stolen in the first place. Wowing right? iLostFinder not only does just offer snapshots of the thief when the thief is trying to type the unlock password to enter your iPhone, it also gives you a head-start notification that your iPhone is about to be stolen.
This it does by raising an alarm once the thief tries to disable the Internet (GPRS/3G/4G LTE or WiFi) on the device or enable airplane mode, or power it off, or even tries to remove the SIM card in it. The alarm is accompanied by an alert, which can be customized by the owner of the iOS device.
Since using Apple’s Find my iPhone requires the missing iPhone’s data services to be powered on, the ingenuity of iLostFinder security system would not allow the iPhone’s data to be put off without inputting proper password. This feature is out rightly not available in other top anti-theft apps available for Apple iPhone.
I have installed iLostFinder Pro anti-theft app on my iPhone for several months, and also have tried to power off my iPhone, disable the internet connection, and or even pull out the SIM card, it always triggers a loud alarm immediately, and the sound can’t be even turned down! It has never let me down yet!
If you are enthusiastic about using the iLostFinder app, then you can take advantage of the great features this app offers by visiting iLostFinder.com and either trying a free version or going straight up to the premium paid version of the app. It should however be noted that it requires a jailbroken iPhone to work.
