CatchYou Android Application Version 2.0

After a long break, we have decided to release an upgrade for CatchYou application. CatchYou is a phone tracker application, in case you have lost, misplaced or get it stolen. And you can also use this application to track your children or family members' whereabout. So, how it works?

Firstly, you need to set the "passcode". This is supposed to be a secret word because whenever your phone receives this "passcode", it will activate the application. Once activated, it will find the device's location using GPS or Network Provider. Then it will SMS the geo-coordinates to the phone ("tracker phone") which has sent the "passcode".

The "tracker phone" will receive a geo-coordinates via SMS and you can open it using map or browser. So, that's how it work. Any problem, just email us at

You get download the application from Android Market here.
