Important notes on compatibility:
* Runs on any device with iOS 4.3 or above.
* On devices that do not support multitasking, FoneHome must be left running in the foreground in order to continuously track your device and perform commands executed from the web site.
* Once FoneHome has been installed and registered on your device, you will be able to send a push message to your device at any time using the FoneHome website. If you send your device a push and someone swipes to unlock the device while the push is still on the screen, FoneHome will start up and transmit the device's position regardless of whether the app was previously running.
* On devices without GPS capabilities (iPod touches and WiFi-only iPads), FoneHome determines the device's location using its Wi-Fi connection.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. (Continuous GPS is only active when you place your device in 'Lost' mode)
