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.

Not a Scam

Reviewed By Peter Dashnaw on November 19, 2014

I disagree, it is not a scam. Perhaps they were a little premature in their marketing, and even made a few poor calls on the delivery schedule, but this is the world of crowdfunding. Get used to it. Even feature films are turning to this method of producing and distributing their product. A new Star Trek movie is being released in winter 2014, all produced and paid for by crowdfunding.
I have all of my tiles, and I distinctly remember these folks telling me it would take a year or so. My only grievance is the volume of the beep signal is too low, almost inaudible, but I can locate the tile using the app, and I have faith in the company that they will remedy this issue.

Here is a good link to Forbes Magazine that describes crowdfunding.

Relax! Good things come to those who wait.

received tiles, happy with them

Reviewed By Ed Boyle on November 11, 2014

After a year's wait, they finally arrived. A short day's dilemma when I didn't received the email confirming my account. It turns out that my internet provider send it to deep spam. So if you have this problem, be sure to dig into your spam folders.

Works as advertised.

Frustrated and furious

Reviewed By Sandra  on November 9, 2014

Some people have received their tiles i certainly haven't, 13 months so far and emails to them assured me that it was coming in Sept (hey guys Sept has passed its now Nov) and yesterday my reply to another where the hell is my tile email from me got a your email address not registered. Its got to be a scam otherwise they are the most disorganised company in the world. They are an embarrassment and should be closed down. How dare they advertise when they can't even place aged orders. Shocking and disorganised.

terrible customer service. Vapor Ware?

Reviewed By Jess on October 18, 2014

I paid my money more than one year ago and got a series of emails stringing me along. Then I got an email asking me to confirm my email address, which of course their system was unable to do. So now there is no record of my purchase. When I try to communicate with them by email I got a response saying someone would look at my email in 17 days. I'm beginning to wonder if this is a scam. If other people feel that way should we consider a class-action lawsuit?
