‘iGotYa’ – iPhone App Catches Thieves [Video]
I love my iPhone, and now this just confirms that it’s the best invention ever made! There is an iPhone app called “iGotYa” which snaps a photo after the wrong passcode has been entered. One lady in New York says her phone was stolen, but the app emailed her a picture of the thief. Police are now looking for him.
iGotYa requires people jailbreak their iPhones to override Apple’s built-in ban on competitors’ software.
(NOTE: Even though it is legal, Apple says that using third-party software on its devices is a little dangerous.) Robbers usually go after iPhones because they can be shipped to the Dominican Republic where they can be sold for $1500.
