Find My iPhone Apple (iTunes) has been available since June 2009 as a part of Apple’s full featured $99 MobileMe service plan. However, an update released today allows anyone with an iPhone 4, an iPad, or the fourth-gen iPod touch running iOS 4.2.1 to access the feature for free without a MobileMe account. As with the paid feature, you’ll be able to locate your device on a map, lock it, display a message, play a sound, or remotely wipe your data from any browser or the updated iOS app, which went live earlier today along with iOS 4.2.1 itself. Thanks Apple for giving me another reason to upgrade to the iPhone 5 next year.

Where’s My Droid Android is only one of many location apps available but it is certainly the best I have seen for the price. Not only does this app contain all the features of Find My iPhone but you can also send commands that will turn off silent mode and turn up the volume or activate the GPS if it was turned off. Very cool.

What makes it unique is that you can set it to periodically save your location so if your phone gets purposely shut off or the battery dies, its last known location will be saved.
