Undercover 1.5 now uses push notifications

Last week we already announced the availability of undercovercenter.com, a redesigned web portal for Undercover iPhone. Today, we are introducing an update to the iPhone app itself. As promised on this blog, Undercover now has the ability to be remotely activated through push notifications. When reporting a device stolen, you can send it notifications that will trigger Undercover. When you lose your iPhone or iPod, you can use Undercover to display a message on the device.

If you already have Undercover installed on your iPhone or iPod touch, you may download this free update right on your device. If you aren't an Undercover user yet, please check out the updated website or view Undercover directly on the App Store.

Introducing undercovercenter.com

We are delighted to introduce undercovercenter.com, the new web portal for all our Undercover iPhone users. When installing Undercover on your iPhone or iPod touch, you automatically receive an account at undercovercenter.com. By logging into your account, you will be able to view your device's location history. The web site makes it very easy to declare your iPhone lost or stolen. In case of loss, you can set a message for the finder.

This new website replaces the retrievemyiphone.com portal that has been in use since April of this year. All existing retrievemyiphone.com users have automatically been transfered. One of our aims with the redesign was to make it feel more like a desktop app. We have invested heavily in this new portal, and we hope you'll like it. As always, we welcome your feedback. Feel free to leave a comment or to contact us directly.

If you don't have Undercover iPhone yet, make sure to check it out on the App Store!
