Along with updates for MobileMe, Apple released its new Find My iPhone app for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad on Friday. The app gives users a dedicated interface for tracking down a lost device when they’re away from their computer.
Like the Web-based version of Find My iPhone, the app lets users locate their missing device on a map, can display messages and play alerts on the missing device, remotely set a pass code lock, remotely lock a device, and can remotely delete all of the data on a device.
Find My iPhone requires a MobileMe subscription, priced at US$99 a year. The Find My iPhone app is free, and is available at Apple’s iTunes-based App Store.
