Apple has launched a redesigned version of its Me.com splash page for the iPhone and iPod touch, adding new download links for its MobileMe iDisk and Gallery applications, as well as access to the Find My iPhone feature. Previously, the page contained only one link, providing setup instructions for setting up Mail, Contacts, Calendars, and Find my iPhone on an iPhone/iPod touch; the new page retains this link, but adds the others mentioned above. Following the Find My iPhone link prompts the user to enter his or her MobileMe username and password, and then takes them to a frame-less version of the Find My iPhone page, complete with location map and links to send a text and/or audio alert, or remotely lock/wipe the device. An Apple support document suggests accessing the service “from a friend’s iPhone/iPod touch if you need to locate your lost iPhone/iPod on a map, display a message, play a sound, or remotely lock or wipe it.”

This is a great addition to the MobileMe features.  Never really made sense you couldn’t access this feature from an iPhone before and it is nice that they made it available.  I tried it out and it worked…to track my own iPhone which amazingly is right where I am!
