T-Mobile USA expands Lookout's recovery tool for Android devices


T-Mobile USA and mobile security firm Lookout introduced Scream Tones, a new feature enabling subscribers to more easily locate lost Android devices.

ScreamTones enables T-Mobile USA subscribers to pinpoint a missing smartphone or tablet via Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) Maps; users can select one of six Scream Tones alerts to help them find the device when they close in on its location. The alerts include Lookout's signature siren as well as Wolf Howl, Train Whistle, Euro Siren, Beam Me Up and the T-Mobile jingle.

Scream Tones expands the existing Lookout Mobile Security app, which is now preloaded on most Android smartphones and tablets offered by T-Mobile. Subscribers can also download the free Lookout app from the Google Play storefront. Lookout also sells a premium version including remote lock and wipe features, secure browsing and privacy features. Lookout Premium is priced at $2.99 per month or $29.99 per year.

Lookout now serves more than 15 million users worldwide across 400 mobile networks. The firm adds 1 million new users every month.
