I’m the first to admit that I love using technology to make life easier! This morning, as I was going through some of my favorite blogs and news feeds, I read about a great new product. It’s called Tile, and it’s basically a little white plastic square that brings “Find My iPhone” technology to any item to which it is attached.
Do you have trouble finding your keys? Attach it to your keyring, and you can find your keys using an app on your iPhone or iPad. Traveling? Drop a Tile in your checked luggage for extra security in case your bag is picked up by another passenger. Cycler? Attach a Tile to your bike to help find it if it’s stolen.
The Tile uses GPS and Bluetooth to help you find any item to which it is attached. The Tile app will even tell you where it last saw your Tile-attached item.
Can you imagine attaching Tiles to any item you might need to find? I can, and I pre-ordered three right away with an extra bonus Tile for $56.85.
The Tile is being funded by us, the enthusiastic user community, and supposedly will only be available at these introductory prices through July 22, 2013.
The prices are reasonable, and there’s lots of great information on their site at www.thetileapp.com.
