    Tile really is the superior thing finder on the ma

    Tile slim works just like regular tile, only it is, well, slim. Super slim. They are not joking when they say it is as thick as two credit cards. It looks like someone ran over a regular tile with a steamroller. It is way thinner, but also a bit bigger on both sides than the regular tile. It is exactly as long as the height of a credit card. There is no hole for a keyring (this is a bit big for that), and there is a single button in the center (rather than a hidden button buried in the e). Range seems to be about identical to old tile, and time will tell on battery life. Set up is simple. Just open the app and press the plus sign in the app, press the center button on the tile, and it adds itself. That is it. Simple. Just like regular tile. It took maybe 5 seconds to set up. The finder alarm is loud enough that you can actually find what you have linked to your tile, and is simple to activate. Just go into the app, tap find it on the device you are looking for, and walk around listening. And like regular tile, this goes both ways. Press the button on the tile and your phone will start to ring. So bottom line, if you like Tile, you will like Tile Slim. I have often wished that Tile would fit in my wallet, and Tile Slim has answered that wish. My only gripe is that it would be great if it was a little longer on one side, perhaps exactly the dimensions (at least length and width, thickness is already perfect) as a credit card. It feels a bit off balance in my wallet since it is not quite as long as a credit card. So tile, if you are listening, make a credit card sized tile that fits seamlessly in a wallet. OR, make a super cool credit card holder that this securely inserts into. I would pay for that to have it not off balance my wallet. A word of warning. Regular tile did not have a user serviceable battery. When the battery died, you had to send it in and get a replacement at a decent discount from retail price. This thinner version appears to have the same issue. Assuming battery life is similar to regular tile, you are looking at a yearly re-investment. The battery thing is why I moved away from Tile for a short period, but the reliability of Tile brought me back pretty quickly as the other products could not compete.

    Tiles are an awesome product, that help me keep track of many items. On a daily basis, helps me keep up wth my phone and purse. I constantly leave cellphone SOMEWHERE in my home, garage, car, porch, bbq pit, closet, shelf, bathroom! Just press the "e" on my tile which is kept permanently in my purse. If I lose purse, phone app locates tile in my purse. If I lose both phone and purse,,, tile permanently stuck on my desktop pencil/pen holder,,, finds both! If an item is lost in another place; restaurent, store, anywhere,,, the Bluetooth capability of all other tile owners will bounce off your lost item,, and notify you automatically. Requires no action or even knowledge of other tile owners, to locate your missing item. This is a fantastic product! Am giving TILES for Christmas to everyone on my list. Old and young alike! Attaches under bike seat, in backpack pocket, key ring,,,can be tucked in or stuck on a million objects that can then be found by a tile, cellphone app, or app on your computer or tablet!

    The concept is cool, and it works as it is suppose to. similar to the concept of "find my iPhone". And I'm always misplacing my wallet, in my house not elsewhere. So now that I have it, I realize I'm not using it, like its more of an insurance product in a way. If I ever happen to lose it then it may come in handy. Im just not in the market though to pay $30 for something that may get use of it someday. I know better safe then sorry, but its one of those things I believe would make a great gift, like its nice to have but not fun to for your personal purchase. the biggest con besides just why its not 100% useful to me is the bluetooth. It basically requires you to have your bluetooth on all the time in order to keep tract of the tiles location. So not false advertised and does what it is suppose to do, but overall ill be returning it. I would recommend to someone who clearly loses/misplaces specific important items such as keys, wallets, even remotes. But if its just the occasional "oh my wallet was left upstairs", and you looked for 10 minutes until you remembered it was upstairs. then no, request it as a gift for Christmas, etc...

    My husband had the original sized tile, which while was great was sooo bulky in his wallet. It left a fat square imprint where he would store it but it was a necessity as he always seems to lose his wallet. At one point he lost his wallet twice in a 6 month time span and as the wife who has to cancel all the cards and change all our automatic payments it was frustrating. The slim version is the PERFECT replacement for the tile going into the wallet and he doesn't have an ugly square sticking out from it anymore. It's saved us so much time when he's misplaced his wallet in the house using the ring feature. I'd say it isn't as loud as the first version, but its loud enough for us to buy it.

    When I first became aware of Tile, I didn't feel like I needed it. But after losing my wallet a few months ago (luckily it was returned to me), I realized I needed this. It's an excellent product that works quite well. You can use the Tile App to find the lost item (wallet, phone, tablet, etc) or you can use the Tile itself to find your phone. My only complaint is I have this thing in my wallet and half the time, when I sit down in my car, it rings my phone as it's pressing the button on it, thinking I'm trying to find my phone. They need to have an option to disable the 'find your phone' feature if you want to. But that's a small bother. Overall, the Tile is excellent!

    The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars, is because I think it may still be a bit pricey for it to become mainstream enough for everyone to mutually benefit from having more of the interconnected network functionality to help discover lost tagged items with tiles. It's so difficult to replace all the cards in your wallet, and such a hassle to deal with... I only wish this technology would've come sooner! I put one in my luggage too! I have a bad habit of not putting things down in there proper places, or worse, putting it in a "special" place for me to only forget later where that "special" place was! So this product was a life saver!

    I like how slim this Tile is. I have only found this Tile useful when tracking it down when it's within range. Outside of the range with this Tile and your chances of locating it again are still pretty slim, especially in the hands of stranger. I really wish they made this with a proximity alarm to alert me if my wallet and phone are too far apart from each other to prevent loss. I would buy this again because I think its better to have than have not, if you are the type of person that misplaces their wallet as much as I do.

    I had gotten my mom a set of tiles years ago and she loved them. She let me know before the holidays that the main one was going to die, as I guess it alerts you, so I bought her another one in the slim version. She easily set it up and paired it with the app on her phone to use with her wallet and keys. Voila! Super easy and cool to use if you tend to lose track of things from time to time. The slim version seems much more useful than the others only because it's less bulky and fits on things easier. FYI it does not come with any sort of adhesive so you would have to buy that separately.

    Works well, ideally would be thinner

    If you have owned Tile, the Slim works in an identical manner and just as well. It is slightly thicker than two credit cards, and can be easily tucked away in most wallets. The speaker on Slim is (for obvious reasons) not as loud as it is on Tile and Mate...so if you do not position it properly in the wallet or purse you are going to track, it may be hard to hear the alert tone when looking for the item nearby. Otherwise, it is a great tool to help keep track of small personal belongings and can be a real time saver when you misplaced that item and need to find it in a hurry.

    Took it on a trip across Europe

    The tile worked great as a way to make my own smart-luggage on a several week journey through Europe, letting me know when I was getting too far away from my luggage and even letting me know my luggage was in the plane once I was seated (always comforting to know before the flight takes off). Highly recommend it for keeping track of important possessions and bought a second one for a friend because of how well it worked. Just wish it were a bit smaller to tuck away, and that it cost a bit less but overall great for what it is.

    I often use my tile and have loved it on those mornings where I'm running late and just can't seem to find my wallet. The ring is loud enough to be audible over the background noise in my house. My only issue is the loss of bluetooth connectivity to my iPhone if I don't open the tile app for a few days. So if I have been good and kept track of my stuff for a few days, then lose my phone, my tile won't be able to ring my phone. If this was fixed for iPhone it would be 5 stars but I'm switching to Android soon so it won't be a problem much longer.

    This is my second purchase of the Tiles products and my first of the Tile Slim. I really enjoy that these are so thin. I have one in my wallet right now and have the original tiles in my car, keys, coats, and a binder. These are items that I often loose or misplace. So far since having them I haven't lost anything, but if I have misplaced my wallet several times and it makes it easy to find. I would recommend everyone have tiles. I'm looking forward to the day when the tiles are thinner and smaller to where they are almost invisible.

    Love the size. I think it's safe to say I'm obsessed with tiles. I misplace my keys at least 2-3 times a week and my phone about the same. Luckily never both at the same time. I use either or to the other. Although not extremely loud the alerts are loud enough to make a difference. The white color of the tile does get quite dirty but it isn't anything a wet cloth and some soap cannot clean. Once tile is introduced to your life you will find your self wondering how you ever went on without it.

    No Geofencing!

    This works well for locating your wallet (or whatever personal item you put it in). However it lacks geofencing which would be a huge help. There was a time when I wasn't able to find my wallet in my house so I activated the sound. It was in my house, but for some reason, the app said it was on the freeway miles away. Being able to share the last known location of an item does help though if others can help you find it. I hope the add geofencing the next time around. Also works great for finding your phone too.

    The biggest gripe of this product is that it does not work consistently. The bluetooth connection does not always hold. While the product is cool in terms of size (fits ok in a wallet), if the basic function of locate does not work on a consistent basis, it's useless. I had the wallet 2 feet away from my phone under a pillow, and it could not locate it.

    Initially it's a great item. My phone found the tile within second. It connected and synced instantly. After a few hours I wanted to check to make sure it was still picking up. I may have been a few feet from the item but not far, I was able to see both items visually. My phone could not reconize the item. I then held the Tile in my hand to see if it could utilize the "find your phone" option. No luck there. I kept trying and finally both was able to find each other. Since I keep having the same problems.

    I have mine tucked in my wallet, and knowing it's there gives me peace of mind. However, while I've not had occasion to use it, I've tested it by using my phone to detect it. The app and the Tile don't seem to communicate very well, especially if you do a reverse lookup, i.e. press the button to ring your phone. Cannot yet determine if this is malfunction, or operator error. Will update! Based on price alone, I wouldn't recommend.

    I had one of the original tiles in my wallet, and it saved me a couple times. Once I dropped my wallet walking my dog, and when I got back to my car I was able to track it down, there's no way I would have ever seen it or my money or all my stuff ever again without it. Then, I lost my keys, and that very day got an ad for the new Tile Slim. So I got that, put it in my wallet, and hooked the original to my key ring. Both have helped me already, this is a great tool/toy.

    I purchased this to track a wondering mother in law who is in her 80's. Easy to set up once I watched the video and installed the app. It does NOT alert you every time the person/vehicle moves!! You have to log in EVERYTIME you want to track it. Once logged in it shows you where YOU are, you have to guess where the tracker is to find it on the map. I wouldn't buy it for anything more active or important!!! Go online and buy a tracker from a company who does that for a living!!!

    I have lost my Phone and keys in the past and after getting a recommendation from a friend, I search for reviews online. Youtube had several comparisons and demonstrated that the Tile had greater range and offered a discounted replacement after the first year. Works well and does ring the phone remotely from my computer. I wish the tiles had greater volume, but it does indicate last location contact . Not sure about system utilizing other tiles to help in locating lost items.
