We have just released what may be the most useful free app for the forgetful Android user—Last Ditch Beacon sends an email with the last-known location of the Android smartphone, even if the power is down to 10 percent.

According to JaredCo, around one-third of lost or misplaced smartphones have dead batteries. Until now, there was no way to communicate with the device.

Using the Android phone’s GPS, Last Ditch Beacon sends an email with the last known location of the device when the phone is down to 10 percent of the battery left—complete with a Google map link showing the exact location.

Other features of Last Ditch Beacon:

  • No syncing is required. Last Ditch Beacon configures itself with the GPS app.
  • Last Ditch Beacon works on all Android models.
  • Even though Last Ditch Beacon is FREE, JaredCo provides total support.

Last Ditch Beacon is now available on Google Play, along with many other useful JaredCo apps like UnfollowID for Twitter and One Touch Flashlight.
