Pocket Sense is an app that activates an alarm when it senses an Android phone is being taken

A new app available for Android phones called Pocket Sense turns on an alarm to notify a phone owner when their device has been moved.

Whether charging a mobile device in a public place less than arm’s reach away or falling asleep during a daily commute with a phone inside a jacket pocket or bag, a top priority is making sure the device is well protected.

Simply downloading Pocket Sense, by developer Mirage Stacks, will alert a user to pick-pockets. The app is able to detect when a device is being disconnected from a charger or when it is moved from one place to another. Turning off the alarm is as easy as unlocking the phone’s screen or disabling Pocket Sense mode.
