About The Tile App

TheTileApp works by locating items that have a Tile inside of, or affixed to, it. The art of multi-tasking has consumed our lives is now accompanied with the popular trend of misplacing our belongings.
 
TheTileApp works by Bluetooth GPS connectivity to a battery operated small square shaped waterproof tile. All tiles have a keyhole for placement on a set of keys, a double sided adhesive for items such as laptops or they can even simply be put into a purse or backpack. 
 
Tiles may be purchased online at www.TheTileApp.com. Special deals are currently available for pre-orders. The pricing is as follows: 1 tile costs $18.95, 4 tiles cost $56.85, 8 tiles costs $113.70, or 12 tiles for $170.55. A shipping charge of $8 is applied to each shipment. In the future each tile will cost $25.00. 
 
Upon receiving the tiles you must first sync them to your Apple device. As long as you are within a 180 radius of the tile, you will then be able to view yourself moving toward the item or perhaps moving further away from it. Each tile has a built in speaker so you may also generate an audio alert if necessary.
 
If you are out of range, the” last place seen” feature will point you to the location of where it was last detected. Should another TileApp user be in range of your tile, it is detected through their app automatically and discreetly. The tile’s location will then appear on your map.
 
This function serves for lost or stolen items as well. By tagging an item as lost or stolen, other tile users, if in the vicinity of the item, will unknowingly be assisting you while trying to locate your item. Even people who do not purchase tiles, but choose to download TheTileApp, can take part in efforts to find items tagged as lost or stolen.
 
The low energy usage of these tiles means you never have to replace a battery. Each Tile lasts a year; at the end of the year you will be sent replacement tiles as well as an envelope to mail back your old ones for recycling. 
 
Currently TheTileApp is only available for individuals with Bluetooth 4.0 Apple products; these include the iPhone 4S, the iPad 3rd generation, the iPod Touch 5th generation. Online reviews submitted by Tile users show nothing but positive experiences had by all. The only complaint came from individuals who possessed an Android phone; this is because their phones are not equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 connection capabilities.
 
Now you can finally leave the stress of losing items, and wasted time searching for your belongings, in the past; this device is a Holy Grail.

Should have waited

Reviewed By Bob on January 9, 2015

Usually I never purchase any product until there are a good number of reviews. Thought this would be a good product to give out for Christmas. I received an email that the tiles had shipped Nov 20th
which would be in for Christmas, Well I received them Jan 2 2015.
It was easy to activate the tiles. But to find your keys using the app is useless. The app only says your in range but does send you in the right direction. The sound it emits is much to low to hear if your keys are in a coat pocket or under some clothes. Very disappointed in this product I thought the app would pin point the location much more accurately then it does it only says your in range within 30 ft.
Well that still gives a large area in your home to look.
Hopefully they will improve many features of this product.

Not Impressed

Reviewed By Not Tech Savvy on January 2, 2015

I received a Tile as a gift for Christmas. I had no trouble activating it, BUT upon testing it around the house, the 'tone' it plays is too quiet and unless you are standing on top of it, it will be hard to locate. I just placed the tile in various places around the house, if it were under something, I don't think I'd find it. Also the 'find it' option does not give me the warm fuzzies. I don't want anyone else looking for my phone, wallet, purse, etc... because they could just leave the tile lay somewhere and take my valuables.

Ripoff

Reviewed By Comet on January 1, 2015

My husband bought me a pack of 4 tiles for Xmas. One wouldn't activate because it was broken. I went to their web site to try and contact technical support, but they don't let you talk to a human. You have to follow their help files and if that doesn't work (it didn't), you're out of luck. There is no way to get your money back.

I just waisted $76

Reviewed By Phillip Gapp on December 27, 2014

Nothing worked; including contacting the company. There is no way to access "support." Hopeless. Do not send them a dollar. In the 1980s software companies knew their systems did not work, but published them anyway just before Christmas. They would deal with it latter after receiving millions in sales. This sounds like Tile. the rating is not low enough to score this company.

I AGREE THIS COMPANY IS A BIG SCAM

Reviewed By Elaine on December 27, 2014

I ordered my tiles and after what I feel to be a reasonable period I reached out to them about my order. I get a response back that I should receive it by the end of the month. Subsequently several months passed, still no order.

I finally sent an email stating I was fed up and wanted a refund. The Help group responded and asked should the put it back on my card or via PayPal. I opted PayPal and I am still waiting. After reading all these reviews I see this is how they operate. You either don't get your tiles nor do you get your refund. I agree that a class action should be taken against them because they are a scam artist.

Just disgusted
