After the phone went missing, Schmidgall used the app to keep tabs on it
Hell hath no fury like a guy trying to track down his stolen iPhone.
When Kenneth Schmidgall's iPhone went missing, he went on an investigation that would make Sherlock Holmes proud -- except for maybe the violent confrontation that culminated in him getting the phone back.
Schmidgall, who lives in San Diego with his roommate, Greg Torkelson, a freelance news photographer, used the Find My iPhone app to track down the device. The app ultimately led Schmidgall and Torkelson to a guy riding his bicycle down near Torrey Pines State Beach.
