Great app! It’s already helped me a bunch of times to find my keys, wallet, and phone. I’m a little bit clumsy😬 Because the app prompts you to keep it open to maintain contribute to the mesh network of users and to assist the location of your items, I would like to request a cool graphic. Most people close all of their apps to keep the background battery usage to a minimum, so this is the only one open. If, on the graphic that appears when scrolling through the different apps that are currently open, you put a graphic that reminded the user to not close the app, that would be pretty cool and effective. Or, if in the settings there was a place to customize your own graphic that would appear while the app is open, that would also be pretty cool. Thanks!
Why can’t Tile figure out how to keep Bluetooth running in the background on smartphones? I primarily needed this to be able to find my phone that I tend to loose around the house, usually just before I have to leave for an appointment! If I remembered to leave the app open no problem, but most of the time I’ve cleared my apps (long time habit) and Tile just doesn’t work unless it’s open!! Then I have to do it the hard way: start my laptop, go to web, launch the “Find My iPhone”, wait a minute or two till it’s located, play the sound, hunt it down. – I really thought Tile would eliminate the need to use this method, but until the developers can figure out a way to lock the app open, or something that keeps it connected to Bluetooth, I’m faced with it only working if I’m hyper-vigilant about keeping the app open manually.
Bought one brand new and it was already connected to a device. Since they legally cant reactivate a deactivated tile for any reason, its useless to me. Scam likely, don’t buy.
I have explicitly chosen not to share my location with tile for privacy reasons, but tile sends a push notification to my device DAILY nagging me to share location. This must be a violation of developer policy and it is certainly user hostile. Im a paying customer and I made a decision, honor that choice!
I’ve had Tile for a year and the product works about a third of the time. I’ve contacted customer service which was difficult to communicate with since it’s been outsourced and they sent me new tiles. The new tiles will not communicate with my phone or my phone with the Tiles most of the time. Tile constantly sends unnecessary emails. Please do not email me in an attempt to change my review, I’m dissatisfied with this product.
They took out the ability to disconnect the Bluetooth connection to tile in the latest update. I am having bluetooth interference issue with my Bluetooth speaker. I used be able to resolve by temporarily disable the tile Bluetooth connection to tile while I am connecting to my speaker. Now I cannot do it. Thanks a lot for the update that took out a feature.
I like the purpose of this device since I’m always misplacing my keys and my phone. The HUGE down side to this is that once the battery runs out they want you to go and buy another one. This little devices are not cheap and it adds up. I will not be replacing mine again.
“In this release, we’ve further improved the app...” This is all they ever say. How comfortable do you feel in running a string of new releases when you have no idea what they’ve been doing to the code?
Would love you guys too more features like a feature I would suggest is the battery life indication of key smart pro!!!!
Love the Bluetooth Tile but Tile needs to create an LTE version like Samsung.
