What’s worse: someone steals your car – or they steal your car with an iPad in it?
A man in Paterson, New Jersey managed to track down his stolen car thanks to the Find My iPhone app installed on his iPad.
The man reportedly left his 003 BMW X5 in a Costco parking lot at 11:30 a.m. and returned about 40 minutes later to find the car missing.
He notified police, then realizing he’d also left his iPad in the car, activated the Find My iPhone app.
Getting the car back was no easy feat – the owner reportedly spent the afternoon watching his car travel around the area, eventually tracing it about 15 miles away to Irvington. The owner then drove over and found the car abandoned with the iPad still inside.
Another case of stealing solved through the app offered gratis on iTunes.
And one more reason to install it.
