Greensboro, NC -- Do you always lose your keys? Forget where you put your purse? How about your child, are you forever asking them where they left their coat? There's an app for that! (Or at least there will be)
The Tile App isn't released yet, but techies all over are excited about it's release this Winter. Kent Meeker of TechScout has ordered one of these "tiles".
The "tile" is a small piece of plastic that can be put on your keys, wallet, coat, bike, you name it. Whatever it is you lose, you attach this "tile". Then ou use an app on your phone to find it. The radius is 50 to 150 feet. There's even a mapping screen.
The company is selling them now for $19 but when the product begins shipping the price goes to $25. There is a battery inside this "tile" and you need to replace the "tile" every year. The company says they will send you reminders.
This was a start-up idea that came to fruitition because of on-line orders and fundraising. Their goal was $20,000 but they quickly raised a million dollars!
The site only says the "tiles" will be shipped Winter 2013/2014.
