Smartphones can do so many wonderful tasks, and these days most of us would feel lost without our favorite mobile device. Unfortunately, sometimes you lose track of your phone. Maybe it slipped out of your pocket when you were in a cab, or perhaps someone swiped it from your table at the coffee shop. Whatever the case, you can at least be comforted, since you installed tracking software on your phone. Wait, you didn’t? Well if you have an Android device, there’s still hope.
Plan B is a tracking app for your Android phone that is meant to be installed after your phone has been lost. Just login to the Android Marketplace and tell this app to remotely download to your phone. Within minutes, you’ll receive emails detailing the phone’s current location. It’s always best to install tracking software before there’s a problem, but it looks like this might be a good solution in case you forget.
