GhosTrack is an ideal application to locate the Geographical Coordinate of another Android Device using SMS. So, there is an Admin phone (which wants to track other phones) and the target phones (which will be tracked). Admin just need the phone numbers of these target phones to track them. In the position stream mode, any set movement beyond certain distance and time will trigger transfer of Geographical Coordinates of the target to the Admin. GhosTrack can be used to locate friends & family, as anti-theft device, tracing the route (for example, in hiking and sports), etc. The whole operation can be completed in two different ways by using Internet or using offline maps.
