Description provided by the Developer

Do you ever lost your phone ?  
Send a text message to your phone with a custom word, and your phone will send you back the GPS position, which you can watch on Google Maps.
Do you ever left your phone on silent, and you can not find it ?
Send a text message to your phone with a predefined word, and your phone will start ringing at maximum volume.
Do you ever wonder what your kids are up to ?
Install this application on their Android phone, set up your custom word & whenever you want to see where they are, send a text message with you word to their phone. You will receive back their position.
You can even set up the application to send you a number of messages when they move - so you will know if they leave a place, & where they are heading to.
All this without they even know you are spying on them, because you can set the application word to be "love" for example, and then insert the word in a context like : "I love you".
Inside the application press the menu key for all the option.

If you find the application useful, please consider donating to support further development.

Description from the Market

Find your lost or stolen phone, or track it down when it is on silent or vibrate mode ! Track your teenage kids, and receive periodic updates of their movement.

The words that you chose are case sensitive. The app. will not react if you send "plocate" instead of  "Plocate"

Email me if you still need help !

Be careful about the keywords you set-up, cause they will be sensed, even if they are included in a word, or even in a sentence, within the text message that you will receive !
