    OK, I saw an app that you can use to try and trick someone into thinking that you can locate there phone by entering there number into this app. I can't find it back, does anyone know the name of this app?

    It's in the top paid apps, just browse that. It's called Cell Phone Tracker or something like that. I can't believe such a useless novelty app makes so much money :confused:

    Thanks. After looking it it again, I'm not sure. I thought for a buck I was going to try and fool a certain someone, but 6688 one star reviews? Not so sure anymore. If it uses the GPS in your phone, it should be accurate. And if the interface looks decent, I don't know why all the bad reviews. I'll have to read through them some more.

    Well, it looks like almost every bad review was written by someone who did not read what the app really was. Too bad for the developer that there are so many stupid people out there.

    I wouldn't say "too bad" for the developer. Good for the developer. Those people are the reason the app is in the top paid category and that he is probably making 10's of thousands of dollars a day/week. It's their problem that they can't read. He's just cashing in on their stupidity.

    True. I was thinking about all the people who won't buy because of the bad reviews, but that is probably less people than just buy it without reading what it actually is.
