Ratings and Reviews
Still on trial - update.
The App's instructions are poor and non-extensive and need an upgrade. However, the help desk was very good, so if in doubt, email or ring them. I have still to trial them on trip.
I trialled 4 of these for six weeks, hoping they would work. At no time did any of the 4 work. In fact, they appeared dead by the time I reached Sydney en route to Europe, despite new batteries being installed on the day I left. Worked at home, dead three hours later. Useless. Not recommended.
Glitchy, does not save, does not work!
I saved my Leash It information to the app before loading my luggage onto the plane. When I landed and took my phone off airplane mode, there was no sign of the item, nor the information - the information had been cleared from the app. Further, the app was unable to locate my luggage because the device info had been cleared. I am disappointed I wasted $50 on this rubbish device and glitchy app.
App is extremely flakey and wouldn’t even let me get past the stage of registering my Leash It device.
I tried it on both an iPhone 6 and an iPad Mini 4 with the same result, so at least I can say it’s consistent.
