About our Sponsor
In fact, it allows you to find lost items in seconds: Your keys, your wallet, your phone, your luggage, your camera…you get the idea. Attach it to anything you don’t want to lose — say, some of those new holiday gifts you’re buying? — and use your phone to locate it by sound or see it on a map. Brilliant! Especially for busy parents who have even less time for finding missing stuff.
And we use Tile ourselves, so we can totally vouch for how awesome they are.
