Developer Description

Welcome to Tile, the world’s largest lost and found.

Compatible with Tile Mate, Tile Slim and Tile Original. You can order Tiles at http://www.thetileapp.com *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.

App Reviews

  • Love having a tile!

    By Harleymaxx13
    As one who has a tendency to “misplace” my keys, IPad and IPhone I was delighted when about 16 months ago a clerk at BestBuys told me about Tile. She showed me hers and how it operated. I was sold on it! I immediately bought a Tile for my IPhone. Besides my iPhone and iPad, that was the best money that I have spent on electronics. It was definitely the least expensive. I cannot tell you how many times the Tile has kept me sane. I am not sure where I put my phone or if I even have it with me at times and I just press the Tile. Immediately I know if I have the phone with me or can use my iPad to get a general location for it. I gave up my landline four years ago and just have my cellphone, so I am up the creek without my phone. In addition, I no longer remember phone numbers or addresses, so I am lost without the phone. I have had to deal with Tile customer support electronically and have found them to be very helpful and respond immediately with a satisfactory resolution. I am one happy customer, wish I could say that about some other companies I have had to deal with!!!
  • Dies fast, not a wide range, expensive per year

    By AJM2011AJM
    I preordered the product when it was still in development. It took a long time to get, but I was very excited for what it could do. The ad showed someone losing a bike and finding it with their Tile. Unfortunately, that’s not even possible. The original ad was a lie. There are not enough Tile users in their network to make something like that happen. You need other users to connect to the app to find your lost items and they have to be right next to the item. Maybe the thief could help you find it if they connected to the app standing next to your item, but what are the odds of that? I have to be right next to my cloth purse in order for it to find my keys inside it. It works half of the time. The range isn’t even a few feet in a normal (not steel) house in the same room. I had to throw away 3 tiles I had never used (not cheap,) because they make them stop working after close to a year. It didn’t tell me that when I bought those ones. It’s a great idea in theory, but there are other similar products with better range or that work with better technologies. It can’t even find your car in your driveway if you’re standing right next to it, so it definitely can’t help you figure out where you parked. Very disappointing.
  • Great App BUT:

    By Slimdotkom
    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..
  • Now you can be irritated about your lost keys AND your useless Tile!

    By SunshineOnMyToes
    I was an ecstatic early Tile user. Having had some brain glitches that lead to memory issues, among other things, my Tiles literally helped me feel more normal when I no longer had to be stuck at home, after being ready to head out the door, because my keys/wallet/med bag were in the pantry/linen closet/back of the van from putting them there when I grabbed groceries to bring in. My Tiles made such a difference that I continued to receive them as loving gifts... without heart to say that Tiles have been useless 60% of the time for at least a year and a half. My 8-pack birthday gift this year was so sweet (as was the 8-pack one year ago)... but this is the fourth time I’ve tried to find my iPad today and the Tile app continues to tell me it’s out of range, until I find it under a pile of laundry/in my file cabinet/or on the seat of a chair we never use, pushed under the table. Yea. Go Tile. So good at letting me know my iPad has been found the second it’s in my hands. I’m in the same boat I was pre-Tile... only irritated by the many other things which would have been far more helpful in our lives. I’m off to resume the Day’s Search #4...
  • Tile Saves Time and Stress

    By Abelrm
    In all seriousness I lose my keys, wallet and to a lesser degree, my phone all the time. I’m also pretty Type A/high strung. Nearly every morning buying before tile I would run late and freak out about my keys and now I just always use Tile and it solves the problem ASAP - no time, no stress. I also love the GPS functionality and the fact that I can ding my phone from my keys (had to do that a few times too). I’ve had Tiles for over 3 years now. Love their long battery and the fact that they offer you retile discounts and reminders. Will say that some of my older model ones will once in a blue moon not ring and just “buzzz” but overall couldn’t be happier. It’s loud enough to hear in a large house if you just walk around to find it. love love love - great product that I really use - can’t wait to upgrade to the newer sport models, once I do my next retile,and see if they’re even louder!
  • More than I bargained for!!

    By Rob-the-Paddler
    I am well known in my family for misplacing things, so one of my sons got me a few Tiles for Christmas 2015. They and the App have been helpful locating items around the house but then I lost my keys at Newark Penn Station on December 5, 2017. The App reported the last location and I went back and searched to no avail. I thought that was the end it, but then on January 4, 2018, the Tile App notified me that they were detected in Hoboken Terminal (a completely different train line and a place I would have never checked). It turns out that they were turned in to the terminal’s Lost & Found 2 days after I lost them and the day before I filed a Lost & Found report with the train line. (So much for the efficacy of their database!) We got the keys back because the Tile App detected my 2 year old Tile, even though it was long past its replacement date. I am very impressed!
  • Don’t Buy

    By justmyopiniontoo
    It’s always been a problem that the Tile batteries don’t last more than a year, if that long, can’t be replaced without purchasing new Tiles, and that the ones found in the stores are near the end of their lifespan. But now they have modified the app so that you must give them full time access to the microphone of your iPhone and iPad. Seriously? Why? It’s worked just fine without needing that intrusion. Now it’s not an option. A serious privacy overreach that’s totally unnecessary, as demonstrated by good past performance without it. What data are they trying to sell now? My response to the developer: I am more than capable of turning the microphone on and off; what of those who don’t? The app was quite capable of allowing me to find my iPhone with my iPad and vice versa previously without the microphone and your sales of user data is well known. My iPad is WIFI only, so it’s not “calling” anything when I use it to find my phone and vice versa. And if I want a phone to call my phone, I’ll just call it using my cell carrier. So, again, why have you changed the app to need the microphone?
  • Stops working when you actually need it

    By sbr517
    I’ve been a fan of tile for over 2 years with the original tile (now called Tile Mate) but this year decided to upgrade to the Pro series for the “better range” and “louder sound.” Both tiles work perfectly when I am testing them, even with the phone across the room, as long as I already know where it is. But now whenever I actually need them to work, to, you know, actually find my phone, I always get the sad beeps that mean my phone is supposedly out of range, when I know it isn’t. Tonight I lost my phone inside my car, and both my tiles couldn’t find it when pressing the logo button, when the phone was actually RIGHT there next to me. When I finally found my phone using Find My iPhone on my computer, I checked that the app was open and Bluetooth was on, still sad beeps. Of course now that I tested finding the tiles with my phone FIRSt, they are able to find my phone. But I need them to work the opposite way much more often and they keep letting me down. Big fat waste of money, save your money and use a better tracker.
  • App won’t simultaneously connect to iPhone and iPad

    By Jbyrer
    I have used Tiles for 2 years and have been very pleased with its abilities to find tiles and cell phones. One month ago the tile app stopped working on my iPad and started working on my iPhone. As a result i could no longer find my keys using my iPad. Instead I had to use the iPhone app to find them. The Tile online support was clueless about how I could revert back to the iPad and could only suggest that I upgrade the Tile app. Tile Customer Care support via email solved the problem. The Bluetooth inside the Tiles can only communicate with one device at a time. All I needed to do was turn off my cell phone and then start the Tile app on my iPad. This allowed the tiles to disconnect from my cell phone and re-establish the iPad connection. Thank you, Tile, for all your help. I’m a happy customer again!
  • *** BUYER BEWARE ***

    By MadMadMikey
    The app and the tiles themselves are seriously flawed. The App: I have multiple devices and I loaded the app to my phone and my iPad. Don’t ask me why, but I have to use my phone to find the first tile and my iPad to find the second tile. They came together as a pack and I set them both up at the same time to my phone. When I signed into my account on the iPad later, they both worked fine but after an update or two they split. It was unbelievably annoying. The Tiles: I say *was* annoying because the tiles crapped out. I’ve had them about a year and used them about three times a month. It’s not the Bluetooth locator. That works fine. It’s the sound. You know those cheap birthday cards that play music when you open them but then when you look at them a year later nothing comes out at all? Those are the speakers they use. They’re incredibly cheap and for the amount of money I paid for these things, I expected something of a higher quality. They were great while they lasted but ultimately they’re a waste of time and money.
