If you’d like to add a little more security to your iPhone or iPod touch check out iGotYa. If you type in the wrong code for your passcode lock, it takes a picture with the front facing camera and emails you the picture along with the current location. It costs $6 but there is a 10 day trial. I testing it out by setting up a passcode lock and giving it to my son. It worked withing about 30 seconds. This would be a nice addition to the “find my iPhone” feature but since I’m still on firmware 4.1 it will be a great alternative.
There are some other great features with this app. In the settings for the app there are the basic settings like turning the picture and location features on and off and setting the email address but the additions settings are what make this app even sweeter. One is called “Prevent OFF”. When the device is locked, it won’t power off when holding down the power/lock button. This would allow apps like “Find my iPhone” and Google Latitude to continue tracking the device. Another feature is called “Secure Mode”. This allows the iPhone to be unlocked but personal information like contacts, email, photos, and texts to be hidden. This is nice if the iPhone is needed to make an emergency call.
Overall, a well put together app. It’s priced a bit high at $6.00 but if you need the extra security, it’s probably worth it.
