We’ve been fans of Tile for a while and were excited to try something smaller, and well, stickier, because not every item we tend to lose worked with the more keychain-friendly options already available. AirPod charging cases, for example, have an affinity for constantly being misplaced. But those days are over thanks to a well-placed Tile sticker.
Look, these things work, and they work well. You’ll know immediately if you’ve merely left something in your jacket pocket in the hallway (the ring noise is loud and distinct) versus leaving it at the restaurant where you had lunch that afternoon (the map function is on point). In fact, we spent a day tracking an iPad all throughout NYC without knowing exactly where it was headed, but we always knew exactly where it was. Other potential uses: bikes, laptops, travel mugs, cameras, headphones, TV remote controls, chargers, umbrellas, etc.
Oh, and with the Tile app, the device can work the other way and find your phone (as long as you know where your Tile-tagged device is). No longer will your lost phone be in the last place you look — it will be in the only place you look. Think of all that time saved!
