If you've ever lost a device or had one stolen, then you know what a gut-wrenching feeling that can be. All of your personal data, contacts, e-mail, social networking, photos, and more in the hands of a stranger or thief? The very thought of it is sickening.
If you want a better chance of retrieving your lost or stolen device, then you have to be proactive about the matter. One of the top apps on the Market for hunting your down missing device is, of course, SeekDroid. We've taken an in-depth look at SeekDroid once before, but here's the quick-and-dirty rundown.

Congratulations, guys - all of you will be contacted for your information in the near future!
SeekDroid is, in a nutshell, location tracking software. It can tell you where your device is at any time, in any place. Unlike many other anti-theft apps, SeekDroid has an awesome web interface so you can remotely check on your device. There are two versions of SD: lite and premium; the former of which provides location tracking, remote GPS toggle, and SMS support; while the latter expands that functionality and adds a ton of useful features, like alarm, remote wipe, and much more.
What You Get
On top of the app's standalone functionality, SeekDroid also offers three tiers of plans that offers even more coverage, including "Breadcrumbs," which checks the device location routinely; Location History, which does exactly what it says; and Geofencing, which will send an email alert if the devices leaves a user-defined area.
For this giveaway, we have 20 lifetimes codes for the 'Special Agent' license, which will allow you to use breadcrumbs, location history, and location tracking on up to five devices. This plan will work with either SeekDroid Lite or SeekDroid Premium, so there's no need to upgrade if you don't want to (though I recommend it considering all that the premium version offers).
How To Win
