Good App, Bad Server

Negative Comment by MT9

I used their app for years but recently they have changed their service provider which isn't good.
The worst thing about it is their server is unreachable in some regions (a problem caused by their service provider) which means if you lose your device and it fall into those regions you can never reach it or being informed about it.
I hope they change their service provider anytime soon.

Great open source security app!

This app could come in very hand if your phone or computer were to be stolen. It'll track the location and use of the device and send them to you! I've had the problem that my Android would automatically be reported as missing which is quite annoying, but it might be specific for my phone..

Here is a great story of a guy got his stolen laptop back: http://lifehacker.com/5838440/how-i-got-my-stolen-laptop-back-within-24-hours-using-prey
