Can you access Find My iPhone from a non-Apple phone?

Right now we have two iPhones, and use Find My iPhone on each one to see the whereabouts of the other.

My question is this - if I change one of them to be an Android or Windows phone, can I access iCloud and Find My iPhone from its browser, like I can with my home PC's browser?

The reason I ask is that the experiment I tried, of accessing icloud.com from Perfect Browser on my iPhone, didn't work, it just sat there spinning until I closed it.

Thanks.

Nope.

Yes, set the browser to a desktop mode.



I kept this vague so no personal info was revealed. But I assure you it pinpoints my location.

Side note though. It's a little laggy because its an unsupported browser.

iCloud.com doesn't work in WP7 at all. You can't log in and you don't even see an error message.

It's a good thing that Apple's websites conform to W3C standards
