Mobile Device Theft Recovery Applicaiton
The constant access to information and computing resources brought by mobile devices had changed the nature of computing and communication experience. With more and more cell phones and laptops sold every year, stolen and lost devices have become a rising concern. Several theft recovery applications have been developed targeted specifically for mobile devices, but none for what people came across have combined affordability, deployability, privacy, and ease of use in one single package. The authors propose a new mobile device theft recovery system, codenamed gTracker, which utilizes Google's spreadsheet and web album service as their remote storage server.
