*Ring your things.
Attach or stick Tile devices to anything you don’t want to lose and use the app to ring your stuff when you’re within Bluetooth range. With Tile Slim and Tile Mate you can pick from one of four unique ringtones.
*Ring your phone.
Can't find your phone? Press any one of your Tile devices to make your lost phone ring —even if it's on silent.
*See where you had it last.
Keep the app running in the background and it will automatically record the last time and place it saw your item on a map. So, if you left it somewhere, you know where to look first.
*Ask others to help.
Still can't find your Tiled item? Our “Notify When Found” feature puts every device running the Tile app on the lookout for your lost stuff. If anyone comes within Bluetooth range of your Tile, we'll let you know where it is. This feature is 100% private, so no one knows you're looking for a lost item but you.
*Find your phone from any device.
Our app turns any phone or tablet into a virtual Tile. Simply download the app on all of your devices — and use the app on one of your devices to find another. Plus, you can use our voice calling feature to call another device from the app — even on silent — to help you get in touch with whoever may have picked up your lost phone.
* The app utilizes Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to communicate with your Tiles. The maximum range is up to 300 ft for Tiles Pro 2018.
* The app utilizes Location Services to record the last known location of your Tiles, based on your phone’s geo-location data.
* Continued use of GPS or Bluetooth running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Still better than the pebble bee
My bf got me this last year for christmas. After about five months it stopped playing the song when I would try to find it, however, it still tells me the general location. Frustrating when they are not in a usual spot, but still, I know what room they are in. My dad had also bought me a pebble bee, which I stuck in my wallet. I never lose my wallet, so I haven’t had to use it. However it came with a second one. When I decided I would put both the pebble bee and the tile on my keys ( that I lose very often) I found out the the PB app had logged me out. When I tried contacting customer service they were of no help, and flat out ignored me after I told them I had already tried what they asked me to do. I don’t know how helpful the tile people are, mostly because I have had no issues with the tile. It says that the battery is running low now, and it needs to be replaced. You can buy a new one in the app. While I’m not worried about the expense, I AM worried about the environmental cost of throwing these away every year. I am definitely getting a new one of the tile, as it has helped me very much, and I will try to recycle my current one.
UPS Was Amazed...
I left my keys in Phoenix on Easter weekend and had family ship them back to me by UPS overnight. Keychain had all the important keys and a tile! The keys were lost and a claim was opened so that UPS could begin the search.
I was told that it may take several days to a week to locate them (if they were found at all). At the end of the first day I remembered I had a Tile on the keychain so I launched the app and pressed “lost” to initiate the alert to all Tile app users. It took about four hours to get an email alert that my keys were found at one of the UPS buildings near the Ontario California airport. The next morning, I followed the map directions in the Tile app and it took me literally to the security gate at a large secure building. I had to make several calls to reach an employee in that building who came out to meet me. I explained the Tile system and gave them my iPhone to take back into the building and it will guide them to my keys.
In less than five minutes the UPS rep returned to my car with my keys! Following her were six other UPS employees who wanted to know how the system worked and where they could buy the Tile. I found my keys in less than fourteen hours and UPS likely would still be looking for them. Absolutely incredible. If you ship anything of value, consider attaching a Tile to it so YOU can locate it in case it is lost.
Great App BUT:
The only issue I have dealt with so far is:
The app should not have to run in the background at all times in order to find your phone! My kids play on the iPhone & habitually close apps, so they do not run the battery down. If they mistakenly close the app & we do not realize it, then lose our phone..We are not able to use the app to find it..☹️This is frustrating! If you keep the Bluetooth on, there should be a way not to have to keep the app open. This situation just happened to me. It still took 10 minutes to find my phone because I could not use the tile since someone closed the app! Other than that, it is an awesome app!! I have not used it to find out keys yet but I am sure we will, as my husband loses them all of the time! Hopefully you guys can find a way to make it work without the app running..In the meantime, we will spend more time using it & working with it/getting used to it. So, I will update my review once I get the hang of it..
I recommend this for anyone who loses their keys/phone! It does work well as long as the app is running..
