Tile Slim and Tile Mate Gadget Guide

Tile has officially launched in Australia.

Tile is a Bluetooth tracker and companion app that helps people find lost possessions such as keys, wallets, purses, cars, bags, luggage and more. Tile is a tiny white square that pairs with a smartphone or tablet to become a homing companion for lost things.

Users can simply open the app and ring any item that is in Bluetooth range or see its last known location on a map. Tile also works in reverse, allowing consumers to ring their smartphone with the push of a button on their Tile device itself even if the phone is left on silent mode.

The device also features innovative crowdsourcing technology to help users find lost items outside of Bluetooth range. Tile allows users to anonymously enlist the help of the entire Tile community in your search – so that anyone running the Tile app can anonymously update the location of any Tile anywhere in the world. Tile’s powerful Community Find feature has recovered lost and stolen cars, motorcycles, jewellery, pets and, of course, pesky keys that get dropped in between the couch cushions or stuck in the fridge somehow.

Tile Slim is as thin as two credit cards – perfect for wallets, purses, laptops and anything with a slim profile. Plus, you can customise your ring with four preset tunes.
