InstaMapper is a free iphone application which allows you to track your i-phone location online in realtime. The phone you’re tracking will be instantly shown as a moving dot in the map, and the positions can be set to update as often as every 5 seconds. You can embed this map with your current location into your facebook profile as well.
We had previously reviewed iLocalis and ihound software’s, which helps you track your stolen iphone for free. Instamapper is also basically a GPS tracking service and can also be used for locating lost iphones as long the GPS Tracker application is running. The location data stored could also be accessed programmatically via an API.
