Google Rolls Out Android Device Manager

Google has finally launched the Android Device Manager app on Google Play store. Similar to Apple’s Find My iPhone app, the Android Device Manager lets you locate a missing device on a map, make a phone ring to help you find it and remotely lock or erase a device if necessary.


Introduced back in August but only available on the Web until now, the app runs on any device running Android 2.3 or later. The app gives access to all Android Device Manager features, including locating a tablet or phone on a map, resetting its lock code and erasing it completely. The website was a good first step, but Google notes that if you lose your phone or tablet, you are likely already away from home, and you may not be able to get access to a computer. It may be far easier to either use your phone to find a tablet, or find some Wi-Fi to use your tablet to find your phone.

It must be noted that your missing device must be connected to the cellular network or to Wi-Fi for it to perform the commands.

You can download the app here.
