Podcast 26: iHound Tracks Your iPhone Down – Conversation with Gary Moskoff

Podcast 26 is a 28 minute 23 second long conversation with Gary Moskoff of iHound Software.

iHound 1.1.1 (iTunes App Store)

…is a $3.99 iPhone app (currently on sale for $2.99) that can help you recover your iPhone if it is ever lost or stolen. It does this by leaving a virtual breadcrumb trail of where it has been when the app was activated by you or someone else. You can login to iHound’s web service that displays a map of where your iPhone has been in the recent past. The first six months of this service is included with the $2.99 (sale price) purchase. The service costs $9.99 annually after that.

Gary announced on the podcast that iHound has released code to let other applications leave these breadcrumbs too. So, for example, if someone launches a game or some other app on your iPhone includes iHound’s code, this app will leave a location breadcrumb that can be tracked from your iHound web account.

iHound also provides a free service for up to three supported USB devices like thumb drives and even some Canon digital cameras that you can try.
