From the manufacturer
Show your stuff who’s boss.
Tile finds your lost things whether they’re nearby or far away. Attach a Tile to as many items as you want and easily keep track of them in the app.
Ring your things.
Ring lost items just like you'd call a lost phone. If your Tile is within the 100-foot Bluetooth range, it will play a loud tune until you find it.
Three times louder than Tile Gen 1, tiny speakers let out a 90 decibel melody that’s easy to hear—even if it’s hidden under laundry piles or in a few rooms over.
While scuba diving is out of the question, rainy days won't pose a problem. Tile is water-resistant to IP5 standards.
Enough said. You'll love it.
Tiles are meant to make life easier and less stressful. With that in mind, Tile's non-replaceable batteries will last at least one year with zero charging required. After a year, you can replace your old Tiles with new ones for a special community member price.
Tile works on Apple iOS and Android devices with Bluetooth 4.0
Tile supports Apple devices using iOS 7 and 8: iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, iPhone 6, 6 Plus, iPad Air, iPad Mini, iPad 3rd Generation, iPad 4th Generation, and iPod Touch.
Tile supports the following Android devices using 4.4 or higher (KitKat or Lollipop): Samsung Galaxy S5/S6/S6 Edge, Samsung Note 4, HTC One/One Plus One, HTC One M8/M9, LG Nexus 4, and LG Nexus 5.
If your device is not on this list, but uses Android 4.4 and Bluetooth 4.0, there is a good chance Tile will work fine. However, we are not able to offer the same level of support in troubleshooting scenarios.

Unless you want to re-buy this product every year I suggest you go with another product (probably MYNT) which comes with a battery that can be replaced. An absolutely ridiculous situation.
The device makes a connection with the associated App your mobile phone using bluetooth, so the range is limited to about 100ft (30m), however the Tile and the App clearly communicate regularly because I can check on the App to see how long ago my cat was within range and hence if it says she's currently nearby or was nearby 2 minutes ago I know she's safely in our garden.
If she's gone out of range and I need to get her to come back I can just slowly wander around the garden until I get a connection and then I can make the Tile play a melody. I'm training my cat to associated that with treat-time so she'll come home and it seems to be working :-)
Obviously if your cat wanders off long distances, like most cats do (mine is just very possessive of our garden :-) ) then it won't help you locate your cat that easily.
One feature I also like is that in the application you can press the green circle and it gives you an indication of the signal strength (full strength would be a full green circle, a poor strength would be 1/8th of a circle) so you know how far away the tile is.
This device is great for finding things like lost keys etc in your house, but if you were to lose them in a city, you wouldn't know exactly where they are, however because the App and the Tile communicate regularly the App would know the rough location that you last had your keys with you, so you could head back to that location and see if you can get a connection to the Tile again. So unless someone has moved your keys there is a reasonable chance you could find them again.
If you've lost your keys you can activate a mode on the App. If any other Tile user walks past your keys their phone will note the location and you'll be sent a notification of the location of your keys. The other Tile user would be unaware that they've helped (for the safety of your keys), but it's a useful "community" feature.
The manufacturer also sends out emails with hints and tips and a couple of tips I really like are:
1) When going on holiday put a Tile in your car so that when you've parked your car and walked away, the App will note the rough location of your car, so it should be easier to find your way back to it in a large carpark.
2) Put a Tile in your hold-luggage (check-in bags) and just as you're entering the aircraft you can open up the App on your phone and see if it makes a connection to your tile ... if it does you will know your bag is on the flight (however this is pushing the limits of the range of bluetooth, so it might not get a signal even if the Tile is on the aeroplane).
When you get to the destination airport you can stand back from the crowd gathered around the baggage reclaim belt and just wait for your App to get a connection with your Tile and you know your bag is on its way around the belt! Neat.
The other handy thing is that if you lose your mobile you can double-press the button on the Tile and your phone will play a melody, even if it's on silent (even if you've activated the mute switch on the side of an iPhone).
After using it for a few weeks ago the battery seems to be drained as it's not making a connection even when she's within 50ft of me, so hence giving it 4 stars. I'm now trying another Tile and will see how long this one lasts. The manufacturer state they will replace Tiles if the battery lasts less than 12 months from the date you activate the Tile (no matter how long you might have had a "spare" one sat in a draw waiting to be used).
When the battery dies you can send the Tile back to the manufacturer and they'll replace it for a small fee (less than the cost of a new tile).
The reason it doesn't rank higher is the location of the tile doesn't always seems to sync to its most recent location so it sometimes shows that your keys are a place you were 8 hours ago. Once you open up the app it syncs with all your devices but that's not really helpful if your device at that stage is not within range and/or is lost.
It is also quite large but they seemed to have addressed that issue with introducing Tile Slim and the most recent version, which looks as if it is a lot better size.
I ended up reverting to a basic key finder with a loud alarm. Cheaper and doesn't require a yearly subscription!
