Best or most used lost/stolen phone recovery app?

After buying an app that helps locate a lost or stolen phone, I did a search for more similar apps and came across quite a few of them. A lot actually.

I'm trying to figure out which is the best or even most used phone recovery app. So let's have a vote. Post which one you use, or which one you believe is the best and state the reason why.

Right now I'm using "Wheres My Phone", only because it was the first phone recovery app I came across and bought it right away because of the many phones I've lost. Then I saw the e-GPS a best seller on crackberry.com. Most have all the same general features, some have more or less. I wish it was possible to pick and pull features from these apps to make a super phone recovery app, haha.

Here's a list of lost/stolen phone recovery apps, this is just the few I came across.

Where's My Phone
BlackBerry ER--Recover Your Stolen BlackBerry
Berry Locator
Roblock Anti Theft Recovery
Tyfish Safe and Secure
Cell Seeker
e-Mobile GPS FindMe

List more if you know any more. But lets take a vote and see which one is the best.

I use BuddyGuard.  Not sure if it's the best but it's free (right now) and works like a charm.  Haven't actually lost my device yet but testing seems to work great!
