Take Me Home -- free app puts contact info on lock-screen in case you lose your iPhone

Most people are honest, at least here in rural Iowa. I know that if I lost my iPhone, they'd likely try to return it. But I've often wondered how easy it would be for them to contact me if they did find it, especially if they weren't familiar with the iPhone. One solution is to put your contact information on the lock-screen of your device, so that it's readily available if someone should find your iOS device. A free app, Take Me Home, lets you easily do this. The free version is fully functional, and comes with an attractive home screen. If you want to select the image of your choice, then you'll need the paid version ($0.99).
