Android phone finder app recommendations?

I have the Samsung Infuse and I love it.  However, I noticed a "built-in" app on the HTC Inspire, I think it's called HTC Sense, or something like that, that acts as a phone locator if you lose your phone and allows you to wipe the data, disable it, etc. remotely from a website.  I think I had a similar function on my old Motorola.  Anyway, it doesn't appear that Samsung offers any similar freebie so I thought I'd look in the Android marketplace.  

 

There are so many options out there, how do you decide?  Anyone have a good experience with any of them and care to share your recommendation?

Check out some of the anti-virus applications like Lookout and AVG. Both have a phone finder option.
Probably from mobile, maybe. Smiley Happy

Thanks, I'll check them out.  I'm using Antivirus Free, but that might be a good reason to switch!
