FoneHOME is The Best Find My iPhone & Find My iPad App ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐📍

May 20, 2013

FoneHOME is The Very Best full featured Find My iPhone and Find My iPad App. FoneHome is the most comprehensive solution for tracking your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch and protecting them from loss or theft. It has the most features, highest reliability, and best value of any iOS tracking App. Gain peace of mind knowing you have FoneHome to help you recover your device if it is lost or stolen.

FoneHOME is great for simply finding your misplaced iPhone or iPad, is it in the Laundry room, on the Couch in the Family room, the Bedroom, the Kitchen, or did you leave it in the Car. I couldn’t pass up the reference to ET Phone Home…

FoneHome has helped thousands of users successfully recover their devices. It is an app everyone should own to help them keep track of their expensive Apple equipment. Install it and protect your device now while it’s cheap rather than regretting it later when you lose your device.

How does it work. FoneHome runs in the background on your device, transmitting its location to our servers as it moves. In the event your device is lost or stolen, sign into the FoneHome website to view its current location and access a comprehensive collection of tools designed with one goal in mind – to help you get your stuff back. The FoneHome web site allows you to remotely send the following commands to your device:

✪ Remotely take a Photo using your device’s front-facing-camera, if a thief views your message and you may view it, and save the image, from FoneHOME’s web site!

► Push Message – send a message which is displayed on your device’s screen instantly

► Play a Loud Sound on the device to help you find it

► Remotely open a web site on your device

► Locate Now – find the GPS location of your device immediately

► Lost Mode – receive high-accuracy position updates from your device once per minute

► Siren – activate a loud, piercing siren to help you locate your device

► VOIP call – place a VOIP call to your device from our web site. Useful if your device has no cellular signal or its SIM card has been removed. (Available In-App Purchase).

► No recurring subscription fees

► Periodic location updates allow your device to check in and report its location at a specified interval

► Optional Google Latitude integration – simultaneously update your Latitude position each time your device checks in

► Stores your last 100 location updates

► Power efficient – minimal impact on battery life

► Unobtrusive – runs in the background and requires no user intervention

► Auto-restarts anytime you reset the device. Set it up one-time and forget about it

► Track an unlimited number of devices from the same FoneHome account

► Secure – all transmissions are encrypted using industry standards for the protection of your private information and all data is stored on servers located in a secure data center

► Print a detailed report showing information about your device as well as its current location and approximate address. This report can be given to the police to aid them in recovering your device if it is stolen.

* Runs on any device with iOS 4.3 or above. * Once FoneHome has been installed and registered on your device, you will be able to send a push message to your device at any time using the FoneHome website. If you send your device a push and someone swipes to unlock the device while the push is still on the screen, FoneHome will start up and transmit the device’s position regardless of whether the app was previously running. * On devices without GPS capabilities (iPod touches and WiFi-only iPads), FoneHome determines the device’s location using its Wi-Fi connection.

🔷 How does FoneHome work? FoneHome runs on your device, periodically transmitting your location, speed, heading, and other information to our server where it is saved. Should your device become stolen or lost, simply log in to our site and you’ll be able to view its last known location. You also have the ability to send your device a push message with an optional sound played or web site to visit. This is useful if you’ve lost your device and you think it’s within earshot – send it a push and play a sound to help you locate it. If you believe your device has been stolen or lost, you can send a push message to the device with details on how to contact you, and optionally take a picture remotely using your device’s camera. On devices that support multitasking, FoneHome runs in the background, automatically updating your location on our server as it moves. If your device is restarted while FoneHome was running, the app will restart and begin transmitting its position again. On devices that don’t support multitasking, FoneHome will transmit your device’s location periodically as long as the app is running in the foreground.

🔷 How do I send a push message to my device? Log in to the account you created at setup, onto http://www.myfonehome.com and select the device you want to send a push to. On the tracking page for your device, click the ‘Message / Photo’ command. A dialog will appear allowing you to set the options for your push message. Type in your message, or select one of the pre-written message templates. If you would like a sound to play on your device when the push message is received, select one from the drop-down. Please note that the sound will only play if the volume on your device is turned up. If you would like a web site to be opened on the device, enter it in the box provided. If someone swipes to unlock your device while your push message is on the screen, FoneHome will immediately transmit the device’s position and then open up the web site you provided. This can be useful if you believe your non-multitasking device with FoneHome has been stolen. You can attempt to fool the thief into swiping to open the message by sending a message regarding banking information and then opening the home page of a banking site.

🔷 Help! I’ve lost my device! What should I do? First, log in to your FoneHome account and check the last known position of your device. If you believe your device is close by and the volume is on, you can send your device a push message telling it to play a sound to help you locate it. If your device is not nearby, you have the option of sending a push message to your device with your contact details letting anyone who finds your device know how to return it to you. If you have a device that supports multitasking, FoneHome will continue to run on your lost device, automatically checking in and updating its position as it moves. If your device does not support multitasking and you didn’t leave FoneHome running in the foreground, your best bet is to send a push message to the device. If someone swipes to unlock the device while the push message is still on the screen, FoneHome will launch and transmit the position of the device to our server where you can view it. You can also activate ‘Lost Mode’ which will place the device in a high-accuracy mode which will cause it to send position updates once per minute. Please note that Lost Mode activation is not immediate. Your device must check in at least once after Lost Mode has been activated to know to switch into this mode. Also note that this is very battery intensive so Lost Mode should not be enabled any longer than necessary.

🔷 Which iPhone and iPad devices support multitasking (running the app in the background)? All iPhone models 3GS, 4, 4S, and 5, and Newer support multitasking, provided they are running version 4.0 or higher of Apple’s iOS operating system. iPads support multitasking provided they are running version 4.2 or higher of iOS. On devices that do not support multitasking, the FoneHome app must be running in the foreground (it must be the only app open and actively running on the device) in order to function. Push messages can be sent to your device and received regardless of if the app is currently running or not. If a push message is viewed on the device and the app was not running, it will be started and will transmit a position update.

🔷 How can I prevent the app from being deleted? Go to Settings -> General -> Restrictions -> Enable Restrictions. Enter or create a passcode if prompted. Then set the “Deleting Apps” option to OFF. Tap the Location option on the same screen and select “Don’t Allow Changes” to prevent changes to location services settings to keep a Thief from Disabling location services on your device. If you don’t see these settings on your device, please make sure you have updated the OS on your device to the latest iOS version.

🔷 Help! I think my device has been stolen! What should I do? If you believe your device has been stolen, first log in to your FoneHome account and check its last known position. If you have a device that supports multitasking, FoneHome will continue to run on your stolen device, updating its position periodically.

🔷 If your device does not support multitasking (iOS earlier than iOS4.2 version) and you didn’t leave FoneHome running in the foreground, or you believe the thief has quit the app, you can attempt to fool the thief by sending a push message. We recommend sending a push message telling the thief about “important banking info” or something similar, and sending them to the homepage of a major bank. If the thief swipes to unlock the device while your push message is up, FoneHome will transmit the device’s location and then open the web page you sent, which should hopefully keep the thief from suspecting that the device is being tracked.

🔷 You can Activate “Lost Mode” which will place the device in a high-accuracy mode which will cause it to send position updates every 60 Seconds. Please note that Lost Mode activation is not immediate. Your device must check in at least once after Lost Mode has been activated to know to switch into this mode. Also note that this is very battery intensive so Lost Mode should not be enabled any longer than necessary.

🔷 For any given location that your device has reported, you can print a report detailing the device’s location details, maps, and nearest known address. This report can be given to the Local Police to aid them in finding and recovering your iPhone and/or iPad. Please do not attempt to apprehend a suspected thief on your own. Give your device’s Location Report to the Police and let the Police handle the recovery.
