By having an unlock code on your device GotYa! hooks into that, and once the password/pin/pattern is entered wrong, it allows the device to take a pic of the face of the thief, log the location, and send you an email !

GotYa! takes a silent snapshot of the criminal who is attempting to use your device, through the front facing camera, whenever the screen lock is entered incorrectly. After taking the picture, it acquires the location of your device and forms a Google maps link, sending it with the timestamped picture to your email.

You can even tell GotYa! to shoot and locate every time the screen turns on, after some wrong attempts ! Forget about others "device location" application ! GotYa! is THE choice !

--- FAQ ---
Q: I have a pin code on my SIM card. Is it the same ?
R: NO. Please set up a screen lock.

Q: How to setup a screen lock ?
R: Go to Settings -> Location & Security -> Set up screen lock.

Q: Which screen lock is supported (pattern, pin code, password...) ?
R: All of them. No limitations !

Q: I can't uninstall !
R: To uninstall, please first disable GotYa!

Q: I'm running Froyo, but my front camera isn't recognized !
R: Froyo does NOT *officially* support front camera access to third party developers. GotYa! WILL try various workarounds for you, but please note that this is *experimental* and may NOT works. To be sure, please first try GotYa! Lite. You can help us to (better) support your device by sending us some informations about your camera using the "Support" button inside the application. We will do our best to update our application for Froyo, but you may have to consider upgrading to Gingerbread (or newer) for a 100% support.

Q: Where are stored the captures ?
R: Use your favorite file manager and point it to the /mnt/sdcard/Android/com.myboyfriendisageek.gotya/ directory.

Q: I'm not receiving email alerts !
R: Please first double check your settings, and then use the "Send a test email" button. If you're 100% sure about your settings, look at your SPAM folder. Otherwise, contact us.

Q: Location is missing / How do I increase the location accuracy ?
R: First, be sure that the network location provider is enabled. To obtain a better accuracy, the GPS needs time : go to the advanced settings, and try to raise the location timeout while lowering the desired accuracy to something acceptable. This may delay email alerts though.
