    Seems like a great app and so I have been testing it out today.

    All works well although in each test locate for a lost phone - the app never reports back an address.

    The Lat and long co-ordinates work just fine and so does the link to maps - but it would be great for the nearest address to be shown to.

    My question is this....

    Has anyone used "where's my droid" and had it report back an address?

    Cheers.

    I don't think any of them do that. I use Webkey and location shows on the map, should be real close if using GPS. At least you have the street name (if you look at the map). "Compass" will show a street address, so if you use Webkey, you can remotely activate that app and see the address on the screen. There's "probably" an app that translates GPS co-ordinates to street addresses.
