Unlike the other fake phone tracker apps out there, TrackMyPhone can be used see where your iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 running iOS 4.0 (iOS4) has been. Using the background significant location change methods, your phone location is stored and the history able to be viewed from any web browser. Simply start the app, register or sign in, and select your desired accuracy. That's it. Then any time your device detects a significant location change it will submit the new location to the server. To view your location history, simply log into the website with your app username/password. You can then view the coordinates with matching timestamp, and plot the point on a map.
This is useful in lifestyle mapping, keeping track of your kids/spouse, finding the location of a lost/stolen phone.
Why pay up to $100/year or more for services like Find My iPhone when you can use this at a fraction of the price? (Keep in mind, it also has a fraction of the capability, which is out of our control).

Please note: The app will not update if the phone is restored or someone deletes the app/signs out of the app. The app needs to be installed and signed in for it to update locations.
Your information is private. Data is transmitted over SSL and your location data is only visible by you.
Do not be alarmed if after installing the app the location services arrow remains near your battery. This DOES NOT mean that the app is running 24/7 in the background draining your battery. This just means that location services are active. The app will only "wake up" when it needs to send a location update.
