Description

Pintail is an application for Android phones. It was an experiment in "useful minimalism". It's now slightly less minimalist, but rather more useful.

  • Pintail helps you to locate your phone.
  • Use it to share your location with selected friends and family.
  • It's very simple to use!

Instructions

Just launch the application and enter a PIN number into the box, then when you need to find your phone, borrow someone else's and send yours an SMS which includes the text:

locate your-PIN eg. locate 256

The phone will do its best to pinpoint its position before sending back an SMS message containing its location and a handy link to Google Maps.

If you want to, you can share the PIN number with others. They can use it to find out where you are when they message you, but please share it responsibly!.

You can even leave the PIN blank but this is potentially unsafe since anyone could request your location, but you'll always know they've requested it because you will be notified of the incoming SMS.
