don’t bother wasting your money of these. the batteries die sooner than promised, and 9 times out of 10 it won’t work when you actually need it to. i’ve been late to work more than once because i couldn’t find my keys, and the tile NEVER works.
Rarely works even when a few feet from phone.
Ok Yes I’ll ya lopk May pizza l
I just bought a Tile. Get home, once this app was downloaded it turns out that you need a subscription to use the things it claims to do. First crowdfunding the actual Tile product, then try and sucker people into what most of us call a scam, a subscription. Or a continuous crowdfunding of sorts if you will. All while using crowdsourcing to make those parts of your Tile business/service better (the parts people need to subscribe to). It doesn’t get more shady then that. You have zero customer support. Taking the money is the easy part... Why isn’t any of this made clear on the box? The app itself is a mess. Even the single one basic function you can do without a subscription, making the tile beep if it’s close to you can be a mess. If you don’t let the app have constant access to your position, have it set to ON in app background activity and actually have the app open at all times as well, you’ll get bombarded with notifications, and popups inside the app are more or less covering the thing you’re trying to find. Irony? Don’t let anyone fool you into thinking that a subscription is necessary for a company (or any single devs) to thrive and be successful, what subscriptions does is that it suddenly increases the revenue way beyond the actual value of a product and/or service, compared to just flat out selling a product (like most companies outside the mobile world still does). It’s also unsustainable from a consumer perspective when the amount of bills to keep track of every month keeps rising. Tile, you really should let HomeKit take care of the “smart reminders” etc, eh? I really don’t wanna be tied to your app. There are plenty of (free) Bluetooth apps on the AppStore that will scan for all your Bluetooth devices, and show you the signal strength (which will increase or decrease depending on how close/far you are from the device). You’ll miss out on the ringing tone, but if you’re mostly using those green rings in this app to find your Tile, those other apps will do the same job..
When it does it’s great! But often it just beeps indicating it isn’t connecting. Like right now, I wanted to find my phone but time couldn’t. When I did I trumped connecting and it won’t connect, despite both the app and the phone having the most recent updates. It is completely in consistent. 3.12- that email doesn’t work. Bounces back- maybe supposed to be .com? I reinstalled and it seems to be working now...
I upgraded to the Tile Pro’s and they work fine to help find stuff. My compliant is that it’s too easy to trigger the ‘find my phone’ feature. When I have my keys in my pants pocket, it seems like one third if the time that I bend over or do something that causes my pocket to squeeze, sets off my phone. I’m constantly having to silence my phone. And they should setup the app so that I can silence the phone by just depressing the on-off button. Instead, I have to take it out of my holster to swipe the alert off the screen. They need to make it so that you have to press and hold the button down for several seconds, or even better require you to push the tile button 3 times in a row to trigger the phone. It needs to be a more deliberate event.
I have two tiles and sometimes one of them works but mostly they don’t. Even when I have one in my pocket the app cannot locate it via Bluetooth (they are properly paired). Tile promises a peace of mind but doesn’t deliver.
Left my phone somewhere at Disney. I must have dropped it during the excitement and chaos upon our arrival, I didn’t think about it. I was running solo (husband deployed) with our three young children. We grabbed something to eat and sat at different areas that I thought I put it down and someone picked it up, brought it to security, or who knows?? Tile Saved me from back tracking. I simply pressed the tile button, logged online and it located the phone in the parking lot of our hotel. I had left it in the car when we checked in and valet had swooped the car away before I could do my mommy check of ‘do I have everything?’. Rather than dragging my kids everywhere, I simply asked valet to have my car ready downstairs. I grabbed my phone and asked for him to re-park the car. I gave him a nice tip for saving me the hassle. We were able to enjoy Disney sooner than later. Thanks Tile!
Went through the setup process and confirmed it worked. After that it was unreliable. The tile would be 2 feet from my iPad and would not signal. Even after the tile was “seen” because the “last seen” time stamp was modified, it still never beeped. Maybe it is defective? Will be returning.
My tile is extremely helpful for when i leave my keys places and i can just easily track them. I do think that y’all should make a tile sticker for airpods? I always seem to lose my airpods so it would be amazing if there was something i could stick onto the case so i would easily be able to find them!
