e-GPS Updated to v1.1 - 100 Copies to be Won

By Adam Zeis on 18 Feb 2010 02:18 pm EST

e-GPS was recently updated to version 1.1, fixing most problems occurring with the previous version. If you have not used e-GPS, its an app that allows you to send remote commands to your device using SMS or email. Commands include contact backup, GPS location of your device, alert (audible notification to aid in search of device) and wipe. The latest update has fixed lag experienced in alert, and GPS location requests. The application is available for all devices running OS 4.5 that have unblocked GPS capability. You can pick it up at the CrackBerry App Store for $3.99.

Contest: We have 100 copies of e-GPS to give away. Just leave a comment on this post to enter. Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST. Please only leave one comment, multiple entries wont count.

e-GPS Updated to v1.1 - 100 Copies to be Won



Man o man, I lose my phone as much as I lose my car keys. Oh how nice it would be to have an app like this.

My wife def. needs a copy of this! She loses track of her phone more than anyone i know. Plus it will keep me from having to buy her a gift! haha

I bought the old version then I had to reset my phone because it was glitching from this app. I really could use this! I don't want to pay for it a second time.

Seeing as how I seem to lose a Blackberry every 3 months, this App would be a big help! Thanks!

I tried this app a few months ago and had trouble getting it to work. I'm looking forward to trying out this new version.

Don't need it but that's a a great feature to have, would come in handy to a majority of ppl.

I lost my Blackberry Storm 2 about a month ago, and sure wish I had e-GPS. Please I would appreciate a copy so I won't go through that again!!!

This feature really should be part of the OS... my dumb phone from Sanyo had a similar feature and the BlackBerry is supposed to be a more advanced phone!

I purchased this a while ago for my BB. If I win this free copy, it is going on the wife's BB! Thanks for the chance to win it!

This will be a great help in the near future or whenever i will lose my phone or misplaced it, and the backup is a bonus :D

We recently lost a phone, and this would have been the thing to have. Would love to try it.



I am new to crackberry and love the site i am very interested in this application as i know The IPHONE has a similar app and my friend has used it many times to retrieve his phone from the UF law school library. Four dollars for the price of what could be a new phone at 500-600 dollars is an excellent application. Id like to try it out or one of the free ones be nice =)

I really hope I win this one.

Nice idea to be able to find where a lost blackberry is with gps.

Crossing my fingers!

I would love to have a copy of this app... if the phone got stolen, I could track the people down who have it!

this time to enter into the contest, this app sounds very interesting, i really would like to have a hand on that

As a family, we'd like to know where the person with the phone is located. Instamapper will map your location but you need to have the application running all the time which consumes a lot of power. This seems like a better solution for us because it only pings the device when a family member requests it.
