Find My iPhone:
If you misplace your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac, the Find My iPhone app will let you use any iOS device to find it and protect your data. Simply install this free app, open it, and sign in with the Apple ID you use for iCloud. Find My iPhone will help you locate your missing device on a map, remotely lock it, play a sound, display a message, or erase all the data on it.

BEST THING EVER--a life saver
I was at a trampoline place where there were courses you could do filled with foam. My stupid self decided to take it in with me for pictures and videos. I soon realized that i lost my phone in one of the trampoline pits. The people who worked there said I could come in after it closes to try to find it. I was HOPELESS as the foam pits where very deep and many people have lost there phones in those pits..they even cleaned all the pits out the other day. Thanks to this app I was miraculously able to find my phone with a faint sound under all that foam.
The SECOND time it saved my life was when i was at an outlet. I had my phone in my purse the whole time… It wasn't until closing time at the outlet that I realized my phone was missing! We were able to find out the general location of where my iPhone was at BUT It was already closing time. That next morning we played the sound and we found the phone in a store where a guy was trying to turn the noise off. He hesitantly gave me the phone when I told him it was mine..in fact the lock screen said someone tried to get into my phone! However he did give me my phone back and that's all that matters.
Highly recommend to all Apple users
A Must-Have App!
My sister tends to lose her phone every once-in-a-while. When we were taking an evening stroll with our friends, we got to our friends house, and about an hour later, she feels her pocket for her phone, and her eyes widen. I have seen this happen many-a-time, so I simply get out my phone and use this app. With our trusty adult chaperone, we set off, retracing our steps, trying to find the missing phone in the pitch black. I was convinced, because we were in a not-so-nice part of town, that it was done for, bye-bye iPhone. But, we used the app, and found that it was right where we were walking. I still panicked, because sometimes this app can say your phone is in one place, then 10 seconds later say it's 18 miles away. We used the "sound" feature and could hear it from half a block away. We found it unharmed.
A few months later, my mother lost her old iPod on a road trip. I used this app, and it said "locating"... But it just kept saying that. My best guess to why this is is that it was very old, too old to track. This iPod was not touch screen and only played music.
I've also heard complaints that this app doesn't work when the device is turned off, which I think sounds SO frustrating. Please fix this, otherwise, this app is a lifesaver!
So my friends and I were skating around my school and decided to play football. My sister was with the me so I told her to hold my iPhone 6. Then a group of four teenagers passed by. They were wearing hoods. At first they just passed by looking really shady. They went around the corner of the block whispering. Five minutes later they came back and talked to us. They tried being nice and asked if we wanted their baseball bat. I said sure because I never had one. Then they asked us to play football. After the first three throws, they told us to go down the street really far from them. Then all of a sudden, the group snatched my phone right from my sister's hand and ran away. We called the police and my parents. When we told the police everything they tried searching the street they ran to. Then all of a sudden I remembered the Find My iPhone app. So we tracked it at and looked around that area it was at. The group knew we called the police before so they dropped it on the ground. Plus, I had a password. So we tracked it and found it on a pile of leaves. Thanks Apple for making this app.
