I really like the idea of it but some of the time it gives me an unavailable address when i'm at my house in downtown Austin. Needs improvement.

Not very often i leave comms but wat a handy app, could literally save your life! Just b carefull who u give ya pin 2 coz u could get caught out lol..
good idea but i tried it twice and it leads me hella far from where the phone actually is. my location isnt even in the blue circle on google maps
Can't really get it to work. ALSO WTF IS UP WITH ANYONE JUST BEING ABLE TO ERASE THE PIN! STUPID STUPID STUPID. NEED TO MAKE THE PIN LOCKABLE...DUH!
A great survival tool for you and your phone. If you ever misplace your phone, it will tell you where you lost it. Clearly a must have.
Great app, but don't forget to pay attention to how you send the locator text. It's too late when your phone is gone to ask, Did that need a space b?
Great idea behind this.but how am i supposed to find a phone within 5000 yards of me? Leavin it onincase smething happens where they needto locateme
Works great if you know how to use it. My wife can track me on my bike and she travels for work. We can always find eachother just incase.
It dosent give you exact physical addresses. Cant give whereabouts while person is in motion
Useful as a device/property tracker This i a great way to turn an android into a lost or stolen property tracker on a simple prepaid SIM. To share location with friends and family, use Google Latitude built into Maps. It is better for that.
Super simple app that gives you peice of mind if you forget your phone alot.
Took a while, but the message eventually came through. This is a GREAT program!!
Helped track down my phone when it was stolen. 4 stars becuase it sometimes doesnt respond and/or has too broad of a location
Its not the exact location all the time ; its a bit off but it is pretty decent..
I restart my nexus one and out of no where this app forces to close. It just doesn't work right on nexus one.
Works pretty well. Seems to use coarse location if no gps is available. Tested on a nexus.
When I lost my first g-1 phone..this app came in handy alot ...apart from the fact that I never found my phone because of a thief...it tried
Works great, surprised there hasn't been a review in a year Works great with my older Incredible phone (my wife's too). The only issue is when you bring up the map, there's no 'pin' to show the location, you just assume that the phone's location is the middle of the screen. Still, fairly accurate, more so than others I've tried. I don't have a data plan, so this is a cheap way to locate a phone
I LOVE this app, I can keep track when the hubby is on his way home!
works exactly as i wanted to. been through many similar apps, imo this is the best.
3 stars for the concept, i havent had to use it yet so i dont know if it wroks
This app is awsome if you already suspect where you're phone is... give or take a mile or so. T-mobile G2 w/4G
It isn't specific for the location. It only gave me a mile radius of the location of that phone. That makes it useless.
Nice concept, but you need to have GPS on and even then it was inaccurate. Would work if you only need a general area.
No use since it cant turn any gps on to locate. Good concept though.
Amazing it works perfectley even if you don't have a data plan
I wish there was a way to deactivate pintail so I didn't have to uninstall it every time I don't want to be found, but otherwise this app works great
work great use it yesterday when I left my phone at a coffee shop...thx
Nice, but not accurate if GPS is off. Also, to nitpick, you say 'enter PIN number' which is redundant, should just be 'enter PIN'
Needs option to activate GPS automatically. A secured PIN would also be appreciated.
This is awesome! Finds my location all the time. MyTouch 3G
Its ok but I prefer Where's my droid, much better more useful
This app is great for my g/f when i'm out on my m/c
Downfall is that it is not always accurate. some cases will show a half mile radius (not helpful for a lost phone) if it were consistent 5*!!
Great app. Uninstalled because I found Where's My Droid.
Perfect even if u have data/wifi off. Leave ur GPS on, it doesn't drain the battery if inactive.If thieves change the SIM WaveSecure will tell u! :)
Gave me the direct location of my where abouts wrks great 4 moment
Great as long as the phone is on. If you lose your phone and someone shuts it down the app is useless
Absulutly briliant and u have to read the help things before u get it
Great idea! Excellent execution. Ask for pin on uninstall for 5 stars.
Lost your phone? Find it with an SMS: Pintail replies automatically with your phone’s location to a PIN protected SMS message.Let friends and family easily find out where you are by sharing your PIN number with them: They send an SMS, Pintail replies with your location.(Fixed for compatibility with the cupcake release.)
