Find My iPhone is an app that was created back in 2010. The main task of this application is to find any iOS device in a case you lost it. All you have to do is to connect to the app with your Apple ID from your iCloud. If this unpleasant situation happens, you will have to take another iOS device and look for your missing gadget through the app.

Interface 5/5

The interface in this app is pretty straightforward. Your goal is to sign into your iCloud and then Find My iPhone will swiftly locate your missing device. All the buttons are pretty noticeable, so it won't be hard for you to tap on them. You can also tap the HELP button, which is located in the top-left corner and there you will see more details about the app.

Features 5/5

Find My iPhone has many interesting features. First of all, we have to name the main one - finding your gadget. The application will scan for your device after you logged in. After that, you will be able to tap on your device and choose the option called ACTION. There you can select three modes. The first one is a PLAY SOUND mode, which will force your iPhone to make a sound. This function is useful in case your gadget is nearby and you cannot find it. The second function calls LOST MODE. In this mode, you are able to lock your device with a password so nobody could use your iPhone. It will also continue to track your gadget. The third and the last mode calls ERASE iPhone. If you select this mode, all your content, that was on your device will be deleted, but you also won't be able to track your gadget anymore.

You can also display any message you want on the screen of your missing device. To do that you have to enable the LOST MODE and write anything you want. Then the message will appear. Another useful feature is that Find My iPhone can show you the battery status.

In the latest update for iOS 9 developers added a feature, which will help you to cancel the ERASE MODE in case your missing device is turned off.

Usability 4/5

Find my iPhone is a great app that will surely help you in finding your missing mobile phone. This app is pretty easy to use because it does not require any IT skill. Log in and tap search to find your phone, that is the main thing you should do. The app is surely reliable, but there is one important thing needed from you. The GPS location should be turned on otherwise you will not be able to track the device. All the features work perfectly, so you should not worry.

Compatibility 2/5

Find My iPhone works only on iOS devices, such as Apple Watch, iPad, iPhone, and others. You won't be able to download this app on other platforms, such as Android, Windows, and so on.

Find My iPhone is a nice app, that will surely help you to find your iPhone or another iOS gadget. The only thing you have to do is enable your GPS location. The application has many features that will surely help to find your iPhone or another iOS gadget, and save the information that may be necessary for you.
