I wrote about Tile when they were on Kickstarter back in 2014. I thought it was a clever tool for people like my sister who are constantly losing their car keys or travelers that keep misplacing their phones. Now fully launched, Tile is a tiny Bluetooth tracker that looks like an oversized Scrabble letter that you either attach, stick or place on any item that you tend to lose. When you can’t find your item, you just go into the Tile app on your phone and track it down with a tap of a button. If you can’t find your phone, you can just press one of your Tiles to make the phone ring—even if it’s on silent. It’s brilliant.

The kicker is that it works using Bluetooth, so your Tile has to be within a 100-foot range of you. If by chance you lose it outside of the 100-foot range, you can ask other Tile users to help. The feature is 100% private, so no one knows you’re looking for a lost item but you. See the video above for more info. Prices are really reasonable at just $25 for one Tile, $70 for four or $130 for 8.

They also offer Tile Slim which is the world’s thinnest Bluetooth tracker—as thin as 2 credit cards. Easy to stick, slide or tuck into tight spots like wallets, purses, passports and more.

    Recently announced is a larger but thinner Tile that can be inserted into a wallet. A little more but lost is lost.
