4 for now Will give for stars for now. I like the fact I can make it a system application unlike Airdroid. Will rate 5 if it works if I ever have to use it in a real situation. +1

Beware of permissions! Read and understand the permissions, and their potential, well.

Don't depend on it I lost my Note2 few days back in a bus..... After 2-3 mins of getting stolen, I started sending tens of messages to locate, wipe or everything but thief switched my cell off and none of the msg got delivered. Dont get dependent on this. before this event, I lost hundreds of INRs many times when it started sending location messages in night to the backup number I saved. I am disappointed. I even couldn't get any message if thief has changed the SIM card. No trace of my NOTE2 till now..... :(
