Cool Apps: Stop Losing and Start Finding with Tile

Oh no. You’ve done it again. Lost your keys for the 3rd time this week. Now you’re going to be late to your client meeting. What is it about those darn keys that make them so hard to keep track of? If only you put them in the same place every time you walk into the house, but like that’s going to happen. Between carrying groceries, getting mauled by the dog and pulled by the kids, it’s a blessing you get through the door in one piece. Once in the door your focus is dinner not where your keys are, until you have to leave again. Then you send out the search party, looking in every basket, under every cushion, around every corner. There has to be a better way.

tileWell, today there is a better way. Tile will save you from losing anything important to you (ie: your keys, or your computer, or your remote, or even your wallet). Tile is a small square that has a wireless connection to your phone. That means anything you connect it to or put next to it can be found from your wireless device.

So how does it work? Download the Tile app onto your phone and specify the item you’d like to connect your Tile to. If you leave that item somewhere, the app will track it down and indicate exactly where you last had it. When you begin looking for your lost item, your phone will track the signal strength of the Tile. As you get closer, the tracking circle on your phone fills in indicating you’re moving in the right direction. Get even closer and Tile’s distinct melody will play until you retrieve your lost item and have it back in safe hands. Pretty cool huh? Even cooler, you can connect up to 8 tiles with one account and you can share your Tile information so anyone looking for the remote can find it easily.

Just think how much this little square can help you stay on top of your most important items.

The app is free to download and each tile is $20.00. Totally worth your peace of mind.
