Finally, you can see and use find my iPhone on your iPad as a universal app. The full screen of your iPad is now used instead of replicating a tiny iPhone screen.
Apple describes the app as follows:
Find My iPhone is free for anyone with an iPhone 4, iPad, or 4th generation iPod touch (iOS 4.2 or later required).* Just sign in with your Apple ID on your qualifying device and turn on Find My iPhone to allow you to locate it. Then use the same Apple ID to turn on Find My iPhone on your other iOS 4.2 (or later) devices including iPhone 3G, 3GS, or iPod touch (2nd generation or later). Find My iPhone is also included with a MobileMe subscription.
If you lose your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch while on the go, simply install the Find My iPhone app on another iOS device, launch it, and sign in with your Apple ID (Find My iPhone must already be configured on the missing device).
You’ll see your device’s location on a map and you can choose to have it display a message or play a sound, remotely lock the device, or wipe it to permanently delete all of your data if you think that it won’t be returned. For added security, the app will automatically sign you out after 15 minutes, or you can manually sign out at any time.
This is a very useful app. You can set the feature up on your various iOS devices. It is not only handy to find where you left a device, but locating where your kids have hidden your iPad.
Please note, Apple does not make this clear…You must install the app and enter the information on the device BEFORE you try to use it to locate your device.
Get this app and install it on your iOS devices to keep up with them.
