We don’t realize the importance of anything till it’s actually lost. It maybe a pen of yours or an old mobile phone or even a tie your wife gifted you. It may not be lost forever; you have just placed it somewhere you can’t recall. But those 2 hours are very exhausting. Suddenly you start recollecting all the pleasant memories associated with that particular non-living object and it becomes a living-member of your life that you just didn’t care about enough. Sometimes you find them, sometimes you don’t and it becomes a mark on the timeline of your life, like a scar that you can’t erase but just hope to never look at. It happens almost every day when you can’t find your wallet or an important file that you forgot in your home and are now looking in the office. You need to change this attitude; you need to get Find My Stuff.
Find My Stuff is an iOS app that has been developed by Open Media OOO. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 8.0 or any later version of the OS.
Find My Stuff works with iBeacons and Bluetooth Beacons. These devices work like indicators which send waves in all direction from their point of location and this app works as an antenna that receives these signals. There is a long list of compatible Beacons including g-Tag, Trackr, Estimote, Roximity, Gear4, Red Bear B1 and many more. So as far as the compatibility of the app is concerned with other devices, it’s very high.
Find My Stuff is pretty easy to use. Just add the item you want to track along with the coordinates which will be considered its “home” location and you can spot them on the application map anytime. These coordinates will serve as the reference and if your item is missing from this position, you’ll automatically be notified. So the next time you accidently misplace your keys or wallet, you will know it by the earliest. Another important feature that this app accommodates is the proximity range. So you can set a particular range of distance between you and that item and the moment it crosses the limit, you’ll instantly receive a message. So do grab a nice pair of running shoes because when someone picks your pocket, you have to follow him real quick.
Find My Stuff makes sure you’re not disturbed constantly when you’re at home or working in office. So when you’re connected to home or office Wi-Fi, notifications will automatically be disabled. Or you can turn them off with a single tap and switch to Silent Mode. So it’s very easy to switch from extra-care to care-free life.
So overall, I’d say that Find My Stuff is a very smartly designed app that makes your life error-free and easier in many ways. The app comes for free in the App store. What more can you ask for?
Pros: intuitive UI; compatible with most Beacon devices; track items anytime; get notified when item is missing or gone beyond range; Silent Mode; free.
I give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
