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. Tile Premium: Tile Premium offers an enhanced finding experience with exclusive features like Smart Alerts, Location History and Unlimited Sharing.

  • Not a Fan of the Disposable Tile

    Bought a box of four Tiles last year and they work as advertised. Put them on the keyrings and the dog. But now that the batteries are dying do I want to go out and spend another boatload of cash replacing them? Still thinking about it while I look at the replaceable battery type key finders.
  • Largely useless

    Good if you’re not sure where you left your stuff. But the biggest thing I need it for it does very poorly: alerting me when I’ve left something important behind. I get an alert when I’m ten minutes away from home. Hardly helpful. Definitely not worth the investment for me.
  • Crashes on launch screen

    Long time Tile user here. It used to be good while it worked. After OS updated and app updates didn’t help, I have gone as far as buying a new phone, but the app still crashes.
  • Needed Help!

    I thought I needed the tiles to be replaced, my husband had got me 4 tiles in Dec 2018. So about 3 weeks ago 3 tiles had issues it didn’t work. Which I originally thought the battery needed replacement. So I got in contact with the tile reps. They responded immediately and helped me RECONNECT my tiles. I didn’t know they they needed reconnection. So I’m very happy to have my tiles working again. The Tile Reps. (Peter, Dave and Ina) were awesome! Thank you again.

    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.

  • Tile=subscription based

    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..
  • Doesn’t always work

    By JamesP2012
    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...
  • Generally good. One criticism

    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.
