Finders Key-pers

Do you ever lose your keys? Your wallet, purse, car, smartphone?

A Tile — along with the accompanying Tile app — is the coolest way to find all of these things.

Here’s how it works:

  • Purchase one or more tiles (available from the Tile website and Amazon)*
  • Download the free Tile app from the Apple Store (iPhone and iPad) or the Google Play Store (Android)
  • Create an account
  • Follow the few easy steps to give each tile a unique name (“keys,” “purse,” “bicycle,” “car,” “dog collar,” etc.)
  • Place a tile in/on your stuff

If you misplace the tiled item, use your phone app to make the tile beep. Or, if you need to find your car in a parking lot, for example, use your phone to locate the tile/item on a map.

It works the other way too: if you misplace your phone, you can squeeze any of your tiles to make your phone beep. Pretty great!

You’ll probably want more than one.

* Be sure to purchase the second generation tiles (Gen 2) as they are newer/better than the first releases.
