Now, according to a story in the Wall Street Journal a iPhone thief has been identified thanks to the iGotYa app that took the thief’s picture and emailed it to the iPhone owner along with the iPhone’s current GPS coordinates. The iGotYa app took the thief’s picture as he tried to unlock the iphone. (Unknown to the thief, the iPhone owner had installed the iGotYa app in her iPhone).

The iGotYa app is the most sought-after app now, thanks to the above news.

iGotYa works with the standard native iOS passcode lock system. After setting up, if your lockscreen passcode is tampered with, it will snap a picture of the person who is trying to use or steal it and sends the picture along with the GPS location to your email address. However, iGotYa will require Wi-Fi or 3G to send this information to you.

iGotYa is priced at $6 with a free 10-day trial available.
