I can lose anything. I lose keys like it’s my hobby. More than a few of my sentences start with “Where is the…?” or “Have you seen my…?” It is quite pathetic.
Today I lost my iPad. I was on my way back to work from visiting student teachers, and had gotten all the way to our parking lot when I missed it. I started looking frantically around in my car, (not the best idea when driving), and after pulling over, still no iPad. No student teaching notebook, no student teaching binder either. Honestly, I almost grabbed my head to see if it was still on.
I pulled out my iPhone and tapped the Find My iPhone app. With this app, I could find the approximate location of my missing iPad!
Now, you may guess that the iPad should have been in the school somewhere, but a bit of time had passed and I wondered if someone had seen it, realized this was their lucky day and slinked out of the building with my stuff.
The good news was that it was indeed in the school building. And I didn’t even have to go there to find out! I could see the iPads approximate location on a map. It was right where I left it, at Mayfair School.
I didn’t bother letting the app play a sound on the iPad so I could hone in on it – – I didn’t want to frighten whoever might have been in the ladies room wondering what dip would leave her iPad in the bathroom and walk away.
That would be me.
Have you tried this app?
