Wheres My Phone?
It may seem like a simple concept but we are sure it will save you some time and frustration in the future. XDA member Treytor has developed a simple service for your phone.

Once you install the app you can then access your phone from the website. The site allows you to turn up the volume and then call it so you can find it.
The site’s service and app are free and we can see this being used by plenty of people. I know that I will for sure use this myself as all of us are clumsy in misplacing things.
If you want to download the app the just scan the QR Code or checkout the discussion thread.
