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.
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.
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.
Hi, the app is good. I see you offer support to Land Rover cars. When will you support CarPlay?
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?
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.
The app didn't appear in the app update section, didn’t even know it had one until i tried searching the app
You can’t open the app now without getting bugged about shelling out more money. This is the last tiles I will buy.
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.
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
