[APP] [FREE] [2.1+]Ring My Droid - Remotely ring your phone to find it!
-- Description --
Ever kept your phone on 'silent' mode and kept it somewhere you can't remember?
If your answer is yes, Ring My Droid is the app to solve your problems!
Ring My Droid application has an SMS-triggered alarm system. When you install the app, you are asked to set a 'Key Phrase'. Now, if at any time after that you ever forget where you kept your phone, just use another phone or get one of your friends to SMS your Key Phrase to your phone.
Once the phone receives the Key Phrase as a SMS message, it starts to ring even if it is kept of silent mode! After the it is just a matter of following the sound and finding your phone back.
-- Precautions --
By default the Key Phrase is set to - RingMyDroid. Change it to whatever you want and click the 'Set' button. It is highly recommended that you set a new Key Phrase.
Your Key Phrase is like your password. Keep it secret, otherwise people or some prankster friends may SMS you your Key Phrase and set off your alarm anytime!

-- Going Open Source and a bet with a friend--
I am planning to release the source code of Ring My Droid and so that other interested developers can build on it or use it in their projects. I would be releasing the source code on April 1, 2014.
Now as I am not very good with marketing and practically don't have enough time to spend on marketing (as I am a full time student doing a Masters degree in Computer Applications), the app still has less than 1000 downloads (986 as of the time of writing this post). This is what makes a couple of friends think that if I release the source code, the download count would decrease further and they even bet me that Ring My Droid would never make it to the 5000 downloads figure.
So, I would like to urge people who download the app and use it that if you like it, please do rate and comment on Google Play and share the app with your friends and help me reach that figure and win the bet.
I would be releasing the source code on April 1, 2014 anyways, if I reach the figure or not!
