iTracker, has updated to version 3.5. This anti-theft and tracking app for iPhone now brings number of path breaking features. It can automatically captures the photo of the thief when he slide and unlock iPhone lockscreen and most of the sensitive information such as SMS, Contacts, Photos, video will be rendered inaccessible. And the new iTracker 3.5 hides App icon, so the thief, by no means, will be able to figure out if an iTracker app is installed on the iOS device.
Alternatively, you can capture thief’s photo by composing a SMS message and sending it to the iPhone. As soon as the SMS is received in background on stolen iPhone (without notice to the thief), a function will trigger the camera, and will take the picture in portrait mode.
That who is unaware, iTracker is an advanced anti-stolen and tracking app for iPhone that allows you to find your stolen iPhone. When a thief inserts his SIM card, iTracker will automatically send you a SMS containing the phone number of the thief and will track the GPS location of your iPhone in real-time on Google maps, with any zoom level. It even tracks and store historical path of the thief’s movement which will help you to find where he had gone to in the past few days. You can then inform the authority for action against him.
In addition, you can remotely control your iPhone by sending custom commands to get useful information about your stolen phone – such as receiving the current location in a SMS, Forwarding all of the SMS of the thief to another mobile, Reboot or power off the iPhone and play alarm sounds through SMS commands.
iTracker jailbreak app is currently selling for a whopping $12.99 USD on the underground Cydia app store (under ModMyi repo) for jailbroken iOS devices. You can find a similar app entitled “iGotYa” for less than half of the price, available on cydia too under same repository.
You must be wandering, why to purchase one when we have got free “Find My iPhone” feature available from Apple? Well, these iPhone tracking apps actually packs advance features and are bit better at stacking incriminating evidence against the thief.
In order to install iTracker, your iPhone must already be jailbroken on iOS 5. You can then fire-up cydia, and add ModMyi repo, if you haven’t already. Then search for ‘iTracker’, select it, pay for the app and install it. That’s it!
