Find Your iPhone With a Whistle

Techstination feature for Friday, March 12, 2010

Find your iPhone with a whistle. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. If you're one of the many who wonder....where did I put my phone....and track it down by calling it from another phone....there's a new iPhone app that aims to help. Where is My Phone...from Little World Studio...responds to a whistle...with a variety of sounds...or sounds or messages that you've recorded. CEO David Chomard...

"Even if you're very far away from your iPhone, you just whistle and your iPhone rings with the ring you selected."

But there is a catch. Where is My Phone has to be the last application running for it to respond to a whistle. Not terribly practical. But Chomard points out the app can also be a lot of fun....give your phone to someone...and have it bark or make some other sound when you whistle...

"Kind of a funny application I would say, mainly."

From that point of view, it is entertaining. Where is My Phone sells for 99 cents. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at I'm Fred Fishkin.
