Tile App: Redefining Lost & Found
Do you remember when you were little and you used to play the game Hot Potato? One person would hide something and then the other person would search for it while the hider would eagerly announce “WARMER!” or “COLDER!” as the seeker would search for the item. As a child, this is a fun and entertaining game, even humorous at times, watching the seeker go completely out of their way looking for something that was in different location.
Fast forward to your life today; have you ever tried to get out the door to work, or take the kids to school, but can’t find your keys or your phone? You search all of the logical places to no avail, and your frustration mounts. How you wish at that moment that you had someone guiding you, letting you know if you are getting “warmer.”
Thankfully, one of my favorite gifts this season was the Tile Pro Series. It’s a tracker for your belongings. Use it to track almost anything, including your phone, keys, purse, laptop, backpack, or luggage. It works off of bluetooth, and literally with the press of a button you will be notified by sound and signal if you are getting closer, until you locate your item.
I’ll let you all in on a little secret…when I’m onsite with clients, I am constantly misplacing my keys-just ask my assistant, Erika! I’ll leave them in my workbag, inside a jacket pocket, or buried inside my purse. Ironically, when I’m at home I know exactly where my keys are, but when I’m out, I’m often distracted, and as a result, I’ll arbitrarily place them without thought. Has that ever happened to you?
As much as I’d like to believe that I will never misplace my keys again, I know that’s not reality, so why not reduce stress and save time by attaching this little square to my key ring? The setup was so easy, all I had to do is download the app, enter my name and email, and attach the tile to my keys. No fancy tech set up required! There are multiple versions available based on your needs and lifestyle. See which one is best for you by clicking here. Tile is available for both iPhone & android users.
