Text Message-Based Phone Locating Application

Finding the location of a wayward phone has never been more important. Your phone, with all of its data, is a key element in your living your life. While a number of solutions exist to assist in locating a phone, they predominately require use of an external website as part of the process. Text Location uses the standard messaging service, SMS. Once the application is installed on your phone and the password is set, you are ready to find your phone! All you need is any other device that supports SMS.PermissionsText Location requires a number of Android Permissions for its functionality. How the permission is used is described below. Eamon McMillan Services, LLC will never utilize any information obtained through the use of the application for any purpose beyond application functionality. Receive Boot Complete--is used to start the Text Location service on phone start-up, if the application' service switch is set to ON. Read Contacts--is used to allow you to specify a contact for notifications of your location. There are two types of contacts that you may specify: one, a contact that you simply want to send your location to; and, two, a contact that you want to send your location to in the event of emergency or when you are in a situation where you are unsure of your safety.Access Coarse Location--allows the application to obtain your location that is more general.

The process consumes no processor resources while waiting for the triggering SMS message. To better shield the existence of Text Location, the application may be terminated, without stopping the process from being ready to provide your phone's location when triggered. The process may be terminated by sending a special message from a SMS device or toggling the "One/Off" switch inside the application on the banner, on your own phone.Operations-TabsThere are three tabs to provide for the user's interactions with the application:Notify--this is the main tab used for when you want to let someone know where you are currently located. You may use the contacts button to select the recipient of your location from your phone's contacts for non-panic situations. If the individual is not in your contacts list, you may enter any phone number that may receive an SMS-text message.Settings--this is the place where you set how the application will function in normal and panic notification situations. At the top of the tab, you set the password that will trigger the application process to obtain the phone's location upon receipt of an SMS message. The field is case sensitive. The set password button establishes the triggering password in the application process. The panic button allows you to activate the Panic function on the Notify tab.
