The Find My iPhone app is now free from the Apple store. Absent-minded, rejoice.
Recovery Gets Cheaper
For those still lacking in shiny Apple gadgets, Find My iPhone is an app that locates your lost phone or iPad. Obviously, it isn’t meant to be installed on the lost device—instead, it’s meant to installed on all of your iGadgets (you don’t have a collection by now?), and ideally on your friends’ as well. This way, the app can be used to locate the lost device from anyone’s touch screen. The missing device can then be locked or wiped, and the panicked owner can breathe easy.
Apple Favors The Latest Customers
Here’s a caveat, though, as pointed out by Engadget:
Find My iPhone is free for all devices running iOS 4.2.1, but you can only register for the service from an iPhone 4, iPad, or new iPod touch, unless you pay for MobileMe.
