Now that Find My iPhone is free, I’m wondering what makes it compelling to still pay 100 bucks a year for MobileMe, a service that you can pretty much substitute for free by Google Sync. Yes, you can have multiple devices, I have a couple iphones, a couple ipod touches and an ipad on there.
The service just went live, and with a quick toggle of a preference pane in iPhone OS 3.0 the phone is fully prepared for all sorts of lost and found scenarios -- along with acting as an incredibly intuitive (if pricey) stalking mechanism. Too bad apple doesn’t have the option of password protecting individual apps, instead of the lockscreen password.


Find My iPhone works exactly as advertised, giving us a fairly good location estimate from within our lead-lined underground fortress, and sending annoying messages to the phone complete with sound, even when the handset is switched to silent, though unfortunately the sound is a sort of sonar ping that strikes us as incredibly difficult to locate, unless of course our phone is taken by whale.
The only other problem is that both the location function and the message service took a couple minutes to track down our iPhone -- not a deal breaker, but we don't know what the hangup could be. That way if you do lose your phone in a drinking establishment or something, someone that might happen to acquire it could still use it with no harm until you can walk up to them and say, ‘Oh, great!
After the device is pinged, a confirmation of the event was sent to our MobileMe email address.
