Apps help recover stolen iPhone

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - August 3, 2011

There's an app for that.

In fact, police in Boulder, Colorado, report a man used two different apps on his iPhone to help catch a crook.

A local television station reports Hugh Huffaker left his cell phone in a locker at a rec center and when he returned, it was gone.

Huffaker used a GPS tracking app to trace his iPhone to the Boulder Public Library.

When he got to the library, he used a second app to make the phone alarm go off.

Officers say they arrested a homeless man on suspicion of theft and burglary.
