Saved my phone a few times

So I often leave my phone behind all over the place and was looking for an app that would notify my Apple Watch when this happened (Apple’s built in one takes really long distance to let you know, like a few blocks).
I bought this app even though some reviews were mixed and I’m happy I did.
For me Phone Lost Alert works very well letting me know my phone is lost basically when I’m crossing the street in front of my house. This is great.
I also enabled the distance alert setting with Wi-Fi Safe Zone enabled - this is the key to this setting, make sure you enable Wi-Fi safe zone and this alert works much better. I’ve had a couple moments outside of my house where the distance alert popped up as I was leaving my phone in m car, I had walked like 20 feet away. That was real cool! The app does have a bunch of configurations and can be a bit confusing but honestly I’m super impressed and I found what works really well for me (shared above!).

Everyone Needs This

A few years ago I left my phone in a Vegas casino and didn’t realize it until hours later when I was back in my hotel room. I was so frustrated that my Apple Watch somehow couldn’t alert me of this because it would’ve saved me a ton of time and frustration. This lead me to look into solutions for this type of situation and that’s how I found this app.

Haven’t lost my phone again since that incident in Vegas but knowing I have this app installed gives me peace of mind. The alerts for when you’re distancing (or disconnecting) from your phone work perfectly and are extremely useful. This a must-have app for every iPhone and Apple Watch owner.

Was good, now it’s AWFUL!

I’ve had this app for several version of the iPhone and Apple Watch and the first iterations of this app worked fine, without false alarms but after recently updating this app and being pleasantly surprised by all the great additions to the functionality of this app I was impressed. THAT WAS SHORT LIVED. This app is horrendous with false alarms, no matter how much I tinker with the distance and time setting it’s constantly going off. With me working in the medical field with patient care, it’s very rude and startling to patients and family members having loud and obnoxious fire alarm sounding alerts randomly blaring out of your phone and watch, even when both your phone and watch are on your person. I’ve even went as far as completely shutting down the application when I need it the most but the application is still making my phone alarm randomly. I’m super disappointed in this application now and I feel I have no choice but to remove it completely from my phone.

Developer Response ,

Hello RawDawgRagland, I'm very sorry to learn about your experience using Phone Buddy. There are settings I'd recommend that may mediate some of the issues, for example, you can disable the "Loud Alarm" setting so Phone Buddy uses default notification sounds or vibration when posting alerts. We have also updated a few advanced settings that may help reduce false alerts due to temporary interruptions, such as the Sure Alert setting on the Phone Lost Alert custom settings page on Apple Watch. By the way, Bluetooth shares a spectrum with many wireless devices and as such environmental interference makes 100% accuracy difficult. If you've introduced a new wireless device in home or car and that correlates with the decreasing quality of service please let me know. We are happy to chat further at
