‘Undercover’ Sends Stolen iPhone’s Location Back To Owner

Orbicule has announced that Undercover, their long time theft-detection and device recovery software for the Mac, is being released for the iPhone in the App Store. The software pretends to be a game, tricking the thief into running it, at which time it sends location information to the owner’s account on RetrieveMyiPhone.com, where they can view it’s location on a map and alert police of the crime.

The only real downside of Undercover is that it needs to have an internet connection when run in order to work, but it could prove a real lifesaver in the event of a theft. US App Store for $4.99. More information about the app and a demo video is available at Orbicule.com.
