The iGotYa app might not provide hours of fun like Doodle Jump does, but it sure comes in handy when someone has jacked your Apple iPhone.

Good! Since iOS is an app launcher, it should have nice apps.

concidering 99.9999% of people that are willing to steal your phone arent smart enough to think of that (at least until these articles call attention to it), I'd say it was pretty brilliant. What a great free marketing campaign for your app. "look, it works!" they should post all the mugs of the idiots they catch on their main page as a testimonial..lol

At best he would get the death penalty. At worst mere castration. Thats the only way we get the worst of society under control or out of here.

Yes Miz just another reason; that this app got lucky and worked in this 1 situation where most people are screwed into buying a new iphone at $650 a pop. I'll keep my GS2 with TEP and be quite happy knowing I don't have to worry about paying more than $100 if my phone is stolen. (but i don't leave my phone in stupid places for idiots to grab it) Btw the TEP app works nice and it comes with my insurance and can do the same $hit so eat a bag of d!cks Miz btw wrestling isnt real, neither is santa or the easter bunny
