Lockwatch is a very cool Android app that can help you catch a smartphone thief. If someone tries to unlock your phone with the wrong passcode, a picture and location is instantly taken and emailed to you without the thief knowing. It is completely silent and invisible.

The email shows the photo of individual, as well as, their location. You can share this information with police as evidence to help you locate the device. With this app you can also tell if anyone you know is trying to unlock your phone when you are not around.

The base features are free. Premium features provide extra security like sound clip recording.

This is an app that I recommend all Android users install.  I’m Francie Black with your App of the Week.
