Finding your lost iPhone is just a whistle away

Finding your lost iPhone is just a whistle away
Have you ever misplaced your iPhone and wished that it could answer you if you yelled at it, "Where are you?" A new app provides a similar way to find your missing handset. "Where is my iPhone" listens for the sound of your whistle and then responds with a pre-selected sound ranging from an explosion to a baby crying to more than one type of farting sound. You can even pre-record a message that your unit will play when set off by the whistling. The maker of the app says his program can recognize the sound of  whistling up to 30 meters (nearly 100 feet) away. The cost to buy the app is a mere $1 which you will more than make back from the valium you won't need to take when you quickly find your special, special friend. 30 pre-recorded sounds come with your purchase.

Again, anything 'fart'-related -> go iPhone! Sorry I just could not stop myself from making this comment :) But tbh, this sounds pretty useful. For myself it is not, because I never forget where I put my phone. But I know some people that do.

What if the app isn't open when you lose it? Since the iPhone can't multi-task, I find no significance in this app. I'll stick with Moto Droid with Android TYVM. Lookout works better :)

Ever heard of .... TAA DAA!!! Calling your phone when you can't find it? ... the only way this stupid app will be effective is if it make the responding noise when the ringer is turned way down or even off.

So what you're saying is that this app has continual access to the microphone on your data-connected iphone? Yeah. I don't see any privacy issues with that AT ALL.
