If you find yourself misplacing things like your bags or keys all the time, Tile is here to help. Tile, a crowdfunding sensation last year, is a lost-item finder that you activate with your iPhone then attach to just about anything. Powered by Bluetooth, Tile “sings” to you when you’re looking for your lost item. To find your misplaced item, open up the Tile app, tap the Tile you’re looking for, then tap “Find.” That’s when Title plays its tune, helping you locate exactly where it wound up. Tile’s range is less than 150 feet, which is why its “Community Find” feature is so important. Community Find uses the power of every other Tile user to help find your missing item, even if you’re nowhere near it. You can also mark your Tile as “lost,” which means you’ll get a push notification if anyone else finds it. If you want to keep better tabs on your things, Tile is available to order through its website today for $19.95.
