Apps to Track Your Android Devices When Stolen

Recently, i started writing posts on How to track your smartphones if stolen or lost. I have written on Apple devices and Blackberry devices. So it is time to see what apps are out there for you to enable you track your Android device.
There are a huge amount of applications for android devices and it would be impossible to list all the tracking apps available on Google Play store. However, great apps that I have tried personally will be listed here and you can make you choice of which better suit you.

1. GPS Tracking Pro
This app allows you to track people especially your family and friends in real time using any android phone.
However, you can also use it to track your android device if stolen. All you have to do is have the app already installed on your device or the device you want to monitor and then use the mobile map to track the device from another android phone or internet.
This app can be downloaded from the Google Play store.

2. Locate My Droid
This is yet another wonderful app that can be used to locate and track your android device if stolen. You need to have this app installed on your device before its stolen or lost and then log into the website to track your android device.
The features of this app are great and are as follows
 It can be downloaded from Google Play store

3. Find My Phone
A nice app i must say. Recently updated for more polish effect and feel. It does what its suppose to do as the name implies. It is compatible with so many android phones too and its free as the previous ones.
Just like the other apps, it is required that you install it on your device and then create an account.
You can even monitor your friends and family members by sending an sms to them. If they reply the sms with a "yes", then you can monitor them provided they have the app installed on their device also.

Features are as follows
This app is free and can be downloaded from the Google Play store.

Like i said earlier, there are huge amount of  apps that can be used to track your phone. However, these ones i have used and tested. They are good and you can try it out yourself. You don't need to install all of them on your device as they can affect the battery life of your device.

For more apps out there you can visit the Google Play store to find out more Tracking apps for your android devices.
If you know of any other tracking app that is equally great, it will be good to let us know by putting it in your comment and we can add it up for others to test it out.
