A Fun Whistle Cell Phone Finder App for Android
We’ve all had those mornings when we woke up and got ready to leave for work but we couldn’t find our phone. Nothing can be more frustrating! Well today I’m going to be telling you about a very cool app that will solve this problem for you once and for all. It’s called “Whistle Android Finder”. You can get it from the Google Play store and it’s free.
Well, actually there is a free version and a paid version available. The free version has a lot of advertisements on it but if you buy the PRO version, it won’t have any ads. Whistle Android Finder Pro will only set you back 99¢ so it’s not one of those apps that will break the bank. The PRO version supposedly doesn’t use as much battery power either.
How This Cool Phone Finder App Works
After you download the app, there’s really only one step that you’ll need to take to get it working. That is to check the box that is labeled “Enable Whistle Android Finder”. There are several other settings that you can configure if you want to such as:
- Battery Guard Setup
- Whistle Sensitivity Setup
- Enable Audio Notification
- Enable Vibrate
- Select Sound Notification (By the way, I chose the “Don’t Worry Be Happy” song). You can select from a handful of notification sounds that come with the app or you can even choose music that you already have loaded on your phone. Just long press on the sound you want as your notification to make it your default sound.
- Test Selected Sound
- Override Mute/Silent Setting
The bottom line is that I really like this smartphone finder app! I think it’s absolutely awesome and I have to admit that I’m having a blast playing around with it. I will admit that I had to test a few ways of whistling before I could get it to work. For example, the one long loud whistle that I usually use for calling my dog didn’t work but the whistle that you would make to get the attention of a pretty girl works just fine. You’ll have to play around to see which whistle works for you.
Oh, one other thing. It only works when your phone is in sleep mode.
Short Video Demonstration
Here’s a short video of someone demonstrating the application on their phone.
I’m having so much fun with this clever little app that I’m whistling over and over to make it play the song and my phone isn’t even lost!
