GPS-based phone tracker feature finds Android Devices and iPhones.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) November 21, 2011
Fidelithon Systems™, LLC, a leader in cloud-based smartphone apps for consumer and SMBs, today announced phone tracking capabilities available on its gMelt™ Mobile Device Management (MDM) system. The cell phone tracking is a standard feature on gMeltPro™, and provides a live, secured, web-based graphic user interface that allows the user to see the location of the device on a map, using any browser, and provides historical geographic data for up to 7 days. The app has numerous settings for location sampling rates, enabling variable GPS accuracy while managing battery consumption. Phone tracking can help find a lost device and is part of gMelt’s multi-faceted system, which also includes a cloud-based storage component as well as other manual and automated device data management capabilities. The gMeltPro app is available for iPhone™, iPad™ and iPod™ Touch as well as Android™ phones and tablets.
GPS and Wi-Fi Tracking
The app employs either Wi-Fi or the devices’ GPS function for tracking. Once enabled, the app and location tracking technology becomes a data collection engine which uploads the location coordinates to the gMelt system at 15 minute increments. Within those 15 minutes, users can set how many times the data is sampled, with more sampling enabling greater accuracy.
Within the system’s secured web-based management interface, gMeltWeb (https://gmelt.fidelithon.com/gMelt-web/), users can see this collected data and can simultaneously track up to 100 devices with the simple click of button. Users can also click on a button and a map will be displayed showing the location of the individual device, using the most recent readings, or they can select any sample as far back as the past 7 days. Date and time stamps and latitude and longitude readings are included in the display.
“With smartphones and tablets becoming such a key part of people’s e-lives, managing the valuable data on these devices is very important, but in the event that these devices are lost or misplaced, having remediation capabilities is a good insurance policy”, said Kevin Allan, Principal and Founder at Fidelithon. Our product not only deals with safe storage and management of user-generated content on the device, but unlike other companies, we also address the physical device as part of an overall MDM solution. Having this solution at this price is a tremendous value and should be included in the core set of apps on any smartphone or tablet.”
The gMelt system requires an app to be installed on each mobile phone or tablet, and the app be downloaded from the respective app stores on the smart device (Apple™: App Store, Android: Market). Customers can manage and upgrade their account through https://gmelt.fidelithon.com/gMelt-web/, as well as upgrade through in-app options on the device. gMelt starts at US$1.99 for gMeltPersonal™ and US$2.99 for gMeltPro, with cloud storage options for up to 256GB of data.
