Description

Welcome to Tile, the world’s largest lost and found. Tile makes tiny Bluetooth trackers and a companion app that allow you to locate lost or misplaced items in seconds — like your phone, keys, and wallet. Compatible with Tile Mate, Tile Slim and Tile Original. You can order Tiles at http://www.thetileapp.com *Ring your things. Attach or stick Tile devices to anything you don’t want to lose and use the app to ring your stuff when you’re within Bluetooth range. With Tile Slim and Tile Mate you can pick from one of four unique ringtones. *Ring your phone. Can't find your phone? Press any one of your Tile devices to make your lost phone ring —even if it's on silent. *See where you had it last. Keep the app running in the background and it will automatically record the last time and place it saw your item on a map. So, if you left it somewhere, you know where to look first. *Ask others to help. Still can't find your Tiled item? Our “Notify When Found” feature puts every device running the Tile app on the lookout for your lost stuff. If anyone comes within Bluetooth range of your Tile, we'll let you know where it is. This feature is 100% private, so no one knows you're looking for a lost item but you. *Find your phone from any device. Our app turns any phone or tablet into a virtual Tile. Simply download the app on all of your devices — and use the app on one of your devices to find another. Plus, you can use our voice calling feature to call another device from the app — even on silent — to help you get in touch with whoever may have picked up your lost phone.  Notes: * The app utilizes Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to communicate with your Tiles. The maximum range is up to 300 ft for Tiles Pro 2018. * The app utilizes Location Services to record the last known location of your Tiles, based on your phone’s geo-location data. * Continued use of GPS or Bluetooth running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

I was able to find my phone AND tile!

5
I’m known for losing my phone at least once a week. It ends up being a dramatic manhunt. To remedy this, my husband bought me a tile for Christmas. Within 48 hours I had already put it to use twice because I’m the worst. Flash forward to this morning. I can’t find my phone...no biggie I’ll just get the tile from my purse. But it’s not there. I dump out my purse. Nothing. Queue a full fledged panic. How am I gonna find the tile?! It’s tiny and could be anywhere! Then I remembered this app. I downloaded it on my iPad and within 10 minutes I had my phone and tile. I rarely write reviews but I had to with this. This app is a lifesaver.

Buggy, no technical support

2
Finding stuff is hit and miss. Searches for a long time to find something 10 feet away, says its nearby, then a few minutes later the “last known position” is “9 days old” and 30 miles away???? Maybe I just don’t get it. I keep getting a message saying “background refresh needs to be enabled” but settings has it greyed out so I can’t enable it. Help Search goes into an infinite loop looking for an answer. Zero response, not even simple acknowledgement” from diagnostic report. Not a fun experience.

Does this thing even work?

2
I bought 8 tiles for my wife and daughters to use. My daughters are in college and they use them for keys, backpacks, purses and bikes. We share access but when I look, the last time my app has seen some of these items, which are all near me or my kids and used regularly, is between 3 and 85 days ago. When I look for my own phone from my iPad, an android phone that runs tile in the background and is 15 feet away, the last time it was seen was. 78 days ago. So clearly these tiles do not work passively. On top of that, when they do work, the location of these tiles is only accurate, at best, down to a couple of city blocks. So, they don’t update often and when they do, they are not very accurate. Not what I expected.

CarPlay support?

Hi, the app is good. I see you offer support to Land Rover cars. When will you support CarPlay?

Unauthorized Charge

1
I just received a charge for Premium Service that I wasn’t aware that I had signed up for. My Tiles died months ago and I decided not to purchase replacements. How did this happen?

Only crashes upon opening after most recent updates

1
Can’t even get the app to work anymore, even though my OS and everything else is within the specs. Every time I open the app to look for a tile, I can’t even get to the home screen, it just crashes. I also tried to ring my phone from an active tile today and it won’t do that anymore either. Pretty frustrating since it’s supposed to be a “there when you need it” tool and technology.

Starting to get really greedy for money

1
You can’t open the app now without getting bugged about shelling out more money. This is the last tiles I will buy.

Like Tile, not a fan of the app

2
Why can’t they just have a simple list view. Been using them since the beginning, had tons of problems in the beginning that eventually were worked out but I don’t need to see an advertisement in the app for premium. I have 12 tiles I keep renewing, just give me a simple list view without all the crap.

It really does not help if somebody takes your wallet

1
I lost my wallet and someone random picked it up and I thought oh hey I have the tile app this should be easy to track down but no it’s not it’s based off of other people’s tile to find it. So Even though I was on the spot of where it said my wallet was I actually wasn’t because i tried hitting the ring the tile button but it wasn’t close enough so I spent 45 minutes walking around and still couldn’t get close enough but 30 minutes later I get an update on how the community has found it so I go to that place and still no luck even though I was on the market on where it said it was so thank you for making me spend 15 dollars on something that is a great idea but is very flawed and doesn’t work when you need it the most
