Sosumi

Sosumi is a PHP client for Apple's Find My iPhone service. This allows you to programmatically retrieve your devices's current location and push messages (and an optional alarm) to the remote device.

The previous version of Sosumi (June 2009 - June 20, 2010) scraped MobileMe's website to determine your location information. However, with Apple's new (as of June 2010) Find My iPhone app, we can piggy-back on their "official" JSON web service and pull your information much faster and more reliably as it's not prone to breaking whenever there's a website update. I highly recommend upgrading to the new version.

Much love to the MobileMe/iCloud team for a wonderful service :-)

FEATURES

  • Retrieve your device's current location and margin of error.
  • Push a custom text message to the device and an optional audible alarm.

INSTALL

This script requires PHP 5.2 and the JSON extension, which should be included by default. PHP's CURL extension (with SSL support) is also required.
