SmartPhoneTracker allows you to locate your phone via GPS coordinates, useful if your phone gets lost or stolen, and for locating missing family members. Basically, SmartPhone Tracker is configured to listen for a certain text message. When it receives that text message, the program will wake up, activate the phone's GPS and obtain a lock. Once it has GPS satellites locked, it will send an email or/and text message with a link to Google Maps with the phone's location and exact GPS coordinates. If there is no GPS reception for 5 minute, SmartPhoneTracker will send the approximate Cell Tower location.
New Features: Intercept incoming location SMS. This great feature is useful your friend/family has also SmartPhoneTracker. When receiving a location SMS (Menu->SMS To..), SmartPhoneTracker will automatically open and display the the received location on a map. You can then toggle between the received location and your location.

Version: SmartphoneTracker 1.41
-plenty of custom controls to get up and running -installs easily, no glitches -uninstalls easily as well! (i've done it twice)
-sporadic reporting when sms has been sent -cell tower location doesnt work on my phone (Metropcs towers) it reports i am nigeria and not texas -once an sms is sent or the program is entered after the initial setup the phone crawls, nearly locked.
All told, this programmer is on the right track. I have read other positive reviews on sites where this is also available for download. Maybe it was just my phone that was having problems. It is definitely worth a dl to see if it behaves better on yours. I would have given 5 stars if not for the lockup problem.
