Functionality — 5/5

When you lose your phone, you need to go to this app on somebody else's iPhone or iPad. Then you log in and choose several options that you can do with your lost Apple gadget, search and track its location, erase all data, put the message on the screen with your contact info, play a ringtone or block your device with a lock code.

Design — 5/5

You don't need this Find My iPhone review to tell you that you don't need a sophisticated design here because using this app means that you have enough trouble and won't pay any attention to how the app looks. But you need a functional design which this app has. It's easy to see which icon to tap to do an action which you need.

Usability — 2/5

To use the app, you'll need your Apple ID which you need when you go to iCloud. You need to enable this app from iCloud's settings otherwise or won't work. You also need to have a WiFi or mobile data connection both on a missing device and on a device, you're searching your iPhone from. But most importantly, your iPhone must be turned on! This means that you won't be able to use this app once your iPhone is stolen. Because thieves turn it off of course and they immediately open its guts and remove everything that could trace it, then they rebuild it with other parts or sell by pieces.

But if you can see your lost device on the map, then the app can help you to drive to it. Your missing iPhone or iPad location and data will be sent to Apple for you to retrieve it later, but only for 24 hours.

Cross-platform use — 5/5

This app is available on iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Mac computers. The newest 4.0 version requires iOS 8 or later on the missing device to find. Also, your missing device must be connected to the internet through WiFi or cellular data.

In-app purchases

There are no in-app purchases here because it's made by Apple. Its purpose is to help you when you need it so thank God it doesn't try to make money off of your problems. The app's upgrade is also free. The only thing you need to buy to use this app is an iPhone.

The Bottom Line

You probably have already downloaded Find My iPhone because you hope that it can help you or maybe it was installed by default. Maybe it can, but only if you lose it on your couch or at your friend's house. Once it's stolen it doesn't even have to be off - the thieves can just turn off its Internet, and you will never find your precious and expensive Apple device with anything including this app. The police might help you if by any chance they find your gadget and check it's IMEI.

    I hate the recent changes and this constant necessity to log in! Why do you make us do this action every time? What if I don’t want to have it in such a version? Everything was perfect before updates. Now it’s disgusting!I hate the recent changes and this constant necessity to log in! Why do you make us do this action every time?
