e-GPS Lets You Remotely Track & Wipe Your Device

By Adam Zeis on 7 Oct 2009 01:40 pm EDT


If you worry about your device being lost or stolen you're not alone. Your BlackBerry has precious info that you just can't afford to lose. e-GPS will help ease your anxiety with some very cool remote features. The app works much the same as Smrtguard, allowing you to easily wipe or track the device and email data to yourself. You simply send a command via SMS or email, and the device will perform any number of features. You can use it to locate you device if lost around town or just in the couch cushions. A very cool alternative to some other feature rich applications. e-GPS sells for a one-time fee of $4.99 in the CrackBerry App Store. *As a special, the first 200 users to purchase e-GPS will receive a $1 off coupon that can be used on any Elecite theme.*

Contest: We have 50 free copies of e-GPS to give away. Just leave a comment on this post to be entered. Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST. Please only leave one comment, multiple entries won't count.

e-GPS Lets You Remotely Track & Wipe Your Device



ok ok games are all fun and all.. but i lose my bb once every other week only to retrieve it a couple days later... a necessity!!

i would LOVE THIS APP!! I'VE LOST 2 BERRYS ALREADY and would hate to lose my 3rd one and cant find it. finally someone has this app to locate a lost phone!!!

does this work on CDMA phones, as well? have to ask since Verizon limits the internal GPS on their phones. thank you!!!

The things they come up with just amaze me.
I fear the day my blackberry falls into the wrong hands, this sounds like a must have for everyone!

I teach 6th grade and would love to win a copy of e-GPS. My family of four uses BlackBerry devices exclusively and keeping track of their locationxxxx whereabouts is what I am looking forwards to the most. Are they in class as they are supposed to be? Are they safely on their way back home? Latitude is simply too much of a drain on power resources!

plezofplezpickme,i am too absent minded to be without a program like this to save my arse when i loose my blackberry!

I would really like to win this app because if I lose my phone I don't want anyone to see those naked pictures of me.

I recently got my BB Curve 8900 stolen so I wish I wouldve found out about this earlier! So in attempt to not let this happen again, I would like a free copy :)

I just had my Storm stolen Wednesday and wish I had this, the insurance is great in that they replaced my Storm but all the personal information on my phone is in someone's hands.

I think this is one of the most awesome apps I've seen so far. I wish I would have had it years ago. I believe I'll be buying one for each of the five storms I have on my account. But not all at one time...$4.99 is a great price for peace of mind, but of course can't afford them all at on time. Not for my wife, my oldest son, my mother-in-law, or even myself. It would be for my youngest son. he is anawesome young man but remembering things, sometimes is not his strong point. I've had to replace his phone numerous times in the past couple years. So many in fact that the insurance would not cover him anymore. Just last month he put it down on top of a garbage can outside of his work to change his shirt and walked off. It wasn't until about ten minutes later that he remembered...but it was too late and it was gone. I will be buying your apps in the future, but if you can afford to give one away I would greatly appreciate giving it to my son.

Thanks for reading my rambling,


I'm only a few months into a one-year SmrtGuard subscription, but the audio locate signal doesn't work after the 5.0 upgrade. I sure would like to try this as an alternative!

I'm taking for granting that this app would always be running in the background, just curious how much memory it would use doing so? I love the idea, particularly for this price though.

This would be a great addition to my toolkit. I lost my phone a few months ago and this would have been very useful!
