A new tracking app can find lost items, including keys, mobile phones or even purses.
The Tile app installed on a mobile device will communicate with the Tile gadget attached to a certain item, in order to locate that item.
The Tile gadget is a small square device that can be attached to any items that might get lost.
When users press the Find button, the Tile application sends signals to the Tile network and activates the users’ mobile devices in order to start searching for the objects that it is attached to. This is very useful for people who often forget where they put their phone, keys or their bag.
The application works on both iPhone and Android devices. It emits 90-decibel beeps so the user can easily find the item they lost, even if that item is in a bag or even under some other objects. Plus, the user will receive a notification when the item’s location is identified.
This app can also be pretty useful if users lost their smartphone or Tile gadget, as any smartphone can work as a virtual Tile thanks to the mobile app. This way, users can find their phones using the Tile gadget and their gadgets using their mobile phones.
Still, if users lose both their mobile phone and their Tile gadget, there is a web application that they can access in order to find both of these items.
The Tile’s logo has a hidden button that users can press in order to find their mobile phone. When they double tap on the button, the phone will ring if it is in range.
This is actually the second generation of Tile devices. The new device is considered better as it makes a louder sound so users can find objects faster. The tone is considered to be up to three times louder than it was for the first generation. Plus, the new device has a bigger range. It can find items within 100 feet.
The Tile app is already available in online stores and retail for the price of 25 dollars, while the Tile gadget is not yet on sale, but will be launched soon.
Voices say users will be able to get the Tile device for free when they buy a T-Mobile smartphone, as the T-Mobile company wishes to give away some new Tile gadgets in order to celebrate the launch of the second generation.
