Mobile phones have become an integral part of life for many people not just in Africa but around the world. So, when one loses their cellphone to a mugger, they are willing to do anything to track and recover it as soon as possible. This is where MobTrack, a mobile tracking app, comes in handy.

Designed by Jonathan Amenyah, a young Ghanaian technology developer who also founded RINJAcom, MobTrack helps people track and recover their lost phones using their alternative numbers.

When you install the app on your phone, it detects your primary phone number and SIM card. Then it asks you to provide an alternative number through which you will be able to track your phone when you lose it. If another person inserts their SIM card in your phone, the app sends you their location and phone number immediately.
