Connect

Common 'phone locators' assume it is nearby enough to hear it if made to ring. But what if the phone is further away, out of earshot? No problem now. If you ask Alexa to "Trigger Macrodroid Locator", this applet will instruct (*) Macrodroid to e-mail you the GPS location of the phone (and, yes, make it ring). * More info here: bit.ly/MDLocate
