Lookout is a powerful security app that offers enhanced options to back up your contacts, protect your personal data if your phone is lost or stolen, and more. The result is an app that goes beyond the basic functions of Find My iPhone while maintaining an accessible interface and security-friendly tools. From the short tutorial when you start it to the layout of the interface when you need to back something up or check the security settings, it is a very effective security app.

After installation, you'll be prompted to register a new account so you can use all of the tools available in the app. Among the most immediately useful are the security tools that will check for Jailbreak or iOS vulnerabilities that have been installed by third-party apps or Web sites. For those who have lots of contacts, the backup tool automatically saves your contacts to a cloud server for easy access. We especially liked that Lookout will automatically save your device's location right before it runs out of battery in case it gets lost. You can work with this on the phone or you can access your account on a desktop for remote viewing if it goes missing. The interface is well designed and runs smoothly to make all of this as easy as possible.

Lookout is a powerful tool for managing the security of your iPhone. The interface is well designed, the tools are effective, and the remote services are a perfect addition to the built-in protections of iOS.
