For lost devices, I can see how this app *might* be helpful in finding it.

For stolen devices, I think it would incredibly naive to think that this app would assist in any way of getting the device retrieved from a thief.
No law enforcement agency is going to try to track down your device based on some random website which claims to know it's last location based on GPS coordinates.
They have far more important things to do.

Besides that, a thief is going to take the battery out of the device and/or wipe the handheld before selling it to a pawn shop or dumping it on eBay.
Once the app is gone, it's game over anyway.

In my opinion... it's a fun app to play with, but nothing more than a toy.
One-time $10 fee is fine for this app.
