OK, now listen to this - there's big prizes to win with Theft Aware!

Hey all,

i got a good day, really a good day. Android Police released a great review about Theft Aware, our great Android and Symbian smartphone theft protection app. Also AndroidPIT, one of the biggest german Android app sites covered us with glory. And in the Symbian world we are receiving great downloads from all over the globe.

First of all this is a big honour to a startup like us. And this really makes me feel as if the work we did with Theft Aware was excactly what the global anti theft market needed. So this is good, very good. Also i have the feeling that our customers are happy with what we did which is always a good thing.

Because of that i am now issuing some big prizes to all of those who help us promote Theft Aware 2.0:

1ST PRIZE: an Android or Symbian phone of YOUR choice, for YOUR network, which we'll root (Android only) and on which we'll install a VERY SPECIAL version of Theft Aware 2.0, CUSTOMIZED TO YOU!

2ND PRIZE: EUR 100 in cash

3RD-20TH PRIZE: one free Theft Aware license for a lifetime - not bound to the IMEI which means it will stay valid also if you change your phone

Now, that i got your attention, I'll tell you how to participate in our contest.

How to Win

There are several ways on how to participate in the contest and increase your chance of winning. See a list of achievements below, each associated with achievement points. Whenever you can prove to us that you completed one of the achievements those achievement points will be booked to your winning chance.

Lets do an example as i am not native english speaker... :-) Lets say, participant A achieved 25 achievement points during the contest duration. Participant B achieved 50, participant C achieved 10 and participant D achieved 15 achievement points.

The total number of achievement points is now 100. This means then that participant A has a chance of 25% to win, B 50%, C 10% and D 15%. Each prize will be rolled against the whole list of participants. No participant can win 2 prizes.

Step 1 - Gain Achievements

  • 1 ACHIEVEMENT POINT: Follow ITAgents on Twitter, then tweet the following message exactly as below (replace #Android by #Symbian respectively, if you are a Symbian user):

  • 1 ACHIEVEMENT POINT: like the Theft Aware website on Facebook, then like the entry for this article.

  • 4 ACHIEVEMENT POINTS: share a link to the Theft Aware main website on your Facebook page.

  • 8 ACHIEVEMENT POINTS: link to the Theft Aware main website from your legitimate website. We will decide if the link source website you used is eligible for the contest by common sense.

  • 25 ACHIEVEMENT POINTS: post a minimum 300-word review about Theft Aware on a legitimate Blog. We will decide if the Blog where you posted the review is eligible for the contest by common sense. It is not allowed to just copy the content of other blogs, it has to be your own creation. Just to give you a good example as a start, visit this blog post.

Step 2 - Fill out the Participant Form

Fill out this form, so that we know how to contact the winners.

Terms of Contest

The contest starts immediately and runs until 31st of January, 2011.

Good luck, everyone!

Theft Aware 2.0

Hey all,

finally i got some time to do another post here. As you maybe heard already, we released Theft Aware version 2.0 yesterday. I can tell you, the last weeks were hell of work and now i am very relieved that we got the release out of the door. Unfortunately our servers went down immediately after the release as lots of users accessed our website at the same time but we hope that we can handle further traffic better... we added another server to our array today.

So - whats new in TA 2.0? Check out the changelog that you can find on - its really HUGE. My honest opinion is that Theft Aware now really left competition behind and technologically leads the anti theft market.

We really want to thank all the beta testers that went with us on our journey to this release. The beta program started in April and all the testers put a lot of effort into testing the new release and also suggested great features that we then built into the product.

Last but not least i am very proud to announce that Theft Aware 2.0 was already rated on AndroidPIT and received their best mark EXCEPTIONAL which is just issued to the very best applications around. Thanks to AndroidPIT and again thanks to all the users that helped us put this great release into life. You can check out the test report BY CLICKING HERE, its in german but the english version will be released shortly.

So stay tuned - i am looking forward to the next version.

With best regards
