Apple Releases Find My iPhone App

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.
