si wil your app take a photo of the thief, show message, take a photo when 3x trying wrong code, send phone number when you want, call logs, on sms do some actions (turn on internet), on sms take a photo and send it to my email?
working even when he wipe the device?

Huh? Android is open-source. Most android apps (including the $14.95 a year leech-ware variety) are not.

I was having this type of App in the glory days of Nokia N series. I had installed one app with funcionality similar to this on my Nokia N73, and by the help of that app, I was able to guide police to nab the theif who stole my N73, as that app captured the thief's picture and emailed me, and it even mailed me the co-ordinates of thief's location................
