Apple Approves New App And Increases Demand For LocatePC In Retail Stores

LocatePC Mobile Tracker Lite is a free application in Apple's App store that allows you to track your iPhone and iPad for free

ATLANTA, June 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Hi-Tech Crimes Solutions (OTC:SPFM), the major distributor for LocatePC and LocateMac from its sister company LIGATT Security International (OTC: LGTT) which announced last week that the two new applications (LocatePC Mobile Tracker Lite and Pro) are now able to track your stolen computer, iPhone, and iPad in the Apple Apps store.

LocatePC Mobile Tracker Lite is a free application in Apple's App store that allows you to track your iPhone and iPad for free. You can track unlimited iPhones and iPads from one account. With LocatePC Mobile Tracker Lite as well as Pro, you can track all of your devices in real time from your iPhone or iPad on a secure website, locatepc.net. If you already have a full version of LocatePC or LocateMac software, you can track your computer with this App as well.

Hi-Tech Crimes Solutions recently signed with the major retail distributor Global Marketing Inc and NAVAARE to place LocatePC and LocateMac in retail outlets, such as Walmart, Sams Clubs, Best Buy, and other major brick and mortar stores. When LIGATT Security announced the new applications in Apples App store the demand for LocatePC jumped 50%.

"This month alone we are meeting with buyers of Sam's Club. Also this week, LocatePC and LocateMac are being exhibited to over 300 college retail stores around the country," says Gregory Evans, the creator of LocatePC. "This first half of the year may have began as a great 6 months for LocatePC, but the best is yet to come," says Evans.

LocatePC Mobile Tracker Pro has all the same features of the Lite, but you can also take snap shots from the iPhone of the person using it. In addition to this you can also download the full feature one- year subscription version of LocatePC/Mac software for your computer for only $4.99 instead of the $14.95 at LocatePC.net.

According to USA Today, employees lost laptops the most when they worked out of the office, followed by when an employee traveled. The study also showed that about 40 percent of laptops were lost off-site, while another third were lost in transit or travel, like an airport, train station or in a taxi.

LocatePC and LocateMac allows you to:

-- See a real-time map of your computer, iPhone or iPad's location anywhere in the world -- Remotely shut down your computer from your iPhone -- Send a text message directly to the computer's screen from your iPhone -- Take snap shots of the thief using your computer and/or iPhone -- Activate a key logger that records every key typed onto your computer -- Check to make sure your LocatePC is running on your computer at all times
