Well, summer is drawing towards its inevitably conclusion: Back to School. So much stress over finding the right (expensive) supplies so they can be lost three months later and never seen again. Who wouldn’t love that, right? Ok, so some of us could think of better ways to waste money (day spa, anyone?). Fortunately, there is an alternative… not to buying expensive supplies, you still need to fight that battle on your own; BUT they don’t need to be lost under the bed for till your children graduate from college and move out into their first apartment. “How?” you ask – with Tile.
Tile is a small Bluetooth device that you can slide into your kids backpack or lunchbox or anything else you don’t want them losing (i.e. that you don’t want to have to buy a new one). With Tile you can keep track of where they are and find them if they get lost (ok, WHEN they get lost). Using the Tile app, available for iPhone and Android, you can zero in on the items location, if it’s within 100 ft. of you (like a high tech game of Marco Polo); you can see the Tile’s last approximate locations (so you can have a starting point for your game of Marco Polo); or if it is out of range, in other words really lost, other Tile users can “find” it, and send you the approximate location.
Tile doesn’t actually track GPS locations and only you can see the Tiles registered to you. Tiles are lightweight, water resistant and durable, meaning you can put them on just about everything. And with a starting price of $25, what’s not to love? You can find them on TheTileApp.com and Amazon.com and at major U.S. retailers. So what are you waiting for?
