This is the old PB App and is only for use with the Dragon 3D motion sensor. If you have a Honey or newer device, please use the latest PB App on the App Store. This app's main purpose is to support the Dragon hardware only.
Ratings and Reviews
I have used the Tile for a little bit and liked it but decided to get the Pebblebee for the replaceable battery feature. I bought the 3 pack because I wanted to keep one on our baby just in case we turn stupid and somehow leave our child in the car like you see on the news. I liked the thermometer feature too. Upon setting them all up I notice the temperature on the three didn't match. I calibrated them after they have been sitting next to an actual thermometer for an hour. All three didn't match and were even different from each other significantly.
As for the tracking. I turned on the "getting lost" feature which is supposed to let you know when your phone and dongle starts getting further away. Well that didn't work at all which defeats the way I wanted to use it
Battery hogging inconsistent device w/o support
I have a trackr device, Tile, TagOnce, Qmote and a couple others that I've bought over the past couple years. Pebblebee is the least reliable device. I've been considerable underwhelmed by pebblebee devices, and that's me being very generous. I backed the original pebblebee and bought five more. Big Mistake! The batteries, in the pebblebees lasted less than a week, on their battery saving mode. I went through 10 batteries within two weeks. I wasn't even using four of the devices and the batteries still died. I wish I'd never paid for the Dragon. I was told that the Dragon came with a Qi charger. There was no charger with the Dragon. The online instructions don't go into any specific function detail. It's just downloading the app, pairing and setting up the device. It won't find my phone unless I open the app, on my phone, then it tells me my "device has been located" Seriously?? I have a Mophie case so I have sufficient battery but I'm not wasting it on pebblebee products. The best device I've found, and it's just now available for sale, is the Qmote. Minimal battery usage and it works. I've already thrown away all but 2 of the original Pebblebee products. They're frustratingly inconsistent and support is slow at best, absent when you need them. Hopefully you'll read the reviews before throwing your money away.
Well designed, but not very functional
I hope their next endeavor is a little better, with the Stone. The Honey needs some work. I like the idea of a thermometer, though. And the app only sounds like a text message when the device is getting lost, unlike if you actually have the app open and phone unlocked. It's supposed to run in the background, not open all the time! Well, enough ranting. They did send me a new version of their Honey for free which seems to work a bit better, but although the case and app look nice on the design, the functionality is lacking. I guess I'm just saying I rather prefer function over form, which seemed to be where the first app was headed (it was a lot uglier then!). Then they started focusing less on making it work better and more on how it looks. I hope the next update is more addressing the bugs and glitches. I don't think I am alone with that.
