Anti Theft Alarm
This app fights not the consequences, but the reason. In other words – it helps prevent stealing. The thing is that the smartphone will emit a siren if someone tries to move it. This is definitely a good solution if you have connected your device to the charge in a public place, but you need to pee!
Of course, you will need to choose the settings that will suit your preferences. There’s also an option to switch on the siren remotely on alarm.jorli.com website – you’ll just need to go through an easy registration process.
If you buy the ad free pay version ($1,5), you’ll get the opportunity to choose the siren sound and to make a photo of a person who will try to touch your device.

Android device manager
Android Device Manager works on all devices running on OS 2.2 and higher versions. The whole point is that you can activate the ringtone of your lost smartphone using computer. Even if the device is far away and you can’t hear it, Android Device Manager will locate it.
If you authorize on android.com/devicemanager website, you’ll be able to remotely delete all personal data on your smartphone or tablet.
Also, using «Guest Mode», you can block or switch on the ringtone from any other device with latest version of ADM installed. Press the owner’s name to change the user. After you enter your Google account data, ADM will show you all the devices, connected to it. Now you can perform all the above mentioned actions on them.

Where’s my droid?
This app is quite primitive, but it has several interesting functions. At its first launch, the app will offer you to enter the SMS codes, to choose a friend, to whom SMS will be sent if the SIM changes, or to set the password for the program launch.
App supports two commands – «Panic mode» (switches on the siren mode) and «Predator mode» (locates your smartphone). You’ll get the SMS very quickly, including the exact location and Google Maps link. There are no additional codes for SMS commands – so you should make more complicated queries.
One interesting thing: when the Panic mode is activated, your smartphone will send you SMS that someone took it in his hands!
