Undercover 1.5 Adds Push Notification Support

Orbicule announced the immediate availability of Undercover 1.5 for on Thursday. The update for the iPhone and iPod touch theft recovery tool added the ability to use push notifications to remotely launch the Undercover app.

Undercover uses the iPhone's built-in GPS, Wi-Fi networks and cell tower triangulation to track and report its location. Since the Undercover app must be running for Orbicule to track a lost or stolen iPhone and iPod touch, users can now remotely activate the Undercover app instead of waiting for someone to launch it.

Undercover is priced at US$4.99 and is available for download at Apple's iTunes-based App Store.
