If you’re anything like me, this item from Life n Soul would be a gadget that would come in handy. The KiiTAG Bluetooth 4.0 Item Finder promises to help you to never lose your item!
We received the item finder to review a couple of weeks ago. Even though it said on the package that it was only compatible with iPhones, the app was recently made available in the Google Play Store, and the KiiTag does, in fact, work on my Samsung GalaxyS4.
When I set up the App on my phone, my daughter and I played a couple of games of hide-and-seek with my keys. The signal got stronger as we were closer to the keys, but it was still not very easy to locate the precise position of them. I would prefer something with noise like a metal detector when I get close to the object, that it would buzz or beep really loud. Even a flashing light on the fob would improve it greatly.
The app features an alarm that will go off(can be disabled) if the item goes out of range from your phone. It will show you the last place your item was seen- again, not down to the nitty gritty spot, but you can see if your item was last seen at home, or at your local coffee shop. You can assign up to 10 items with their own KiiTags on one phone. You might be out of luck if you lose your phone, though.
If you lose an item, you can report it missing, and others in your community can help you look for it(assuming they have the app. Unless you report your item missing, no one will have access to your KiiTag. Once you register your KiiTag, it will only be able to be used by you.
There are other add-ons like a camera remote($3.99), auto message sender($4.99), and phone finder(99 cents). These are all purchased through the KiiTAG shop within the app. KiiTAG can be purchased for $19.99 a piece on the LifenSoul website.
This little gadget makes a big sound! If you want a portable bluetooth speaker to listen to your device’s music on the go, I think this would be a good investment! The bonus is that it is water resistant against splashing water from any angle! You can listen to your music while riding your bike in the rain!
Mark was introduced to Life n Soul before with other products like the MT 101 Bluetooth earbuds. They make other products, too, like other Bluetooth speakers, and headphones. I’ll be reviewing another product by them that will locate lost objects in a later post. I’ve enjoyed testing out this Bluetooth speaker they sent us to review.
The speaker is easy to set-up. There is a USB cable to charge it. Once charged, it paired up with my phone quickly and painlessly. There are no apps you have to download to get it to work. Once paired, my phone automatically brought up my music, and I was amazed at the sound quality that came out of it! It took me a minute to figure out after the volume controls on the speaker weren’t going any louder, that I just needed to adjust the volume on my phone. The bass is impressive for this tiny thing, and I like that that it glows and flashes when it is on. The BM101 comes in black, blue, pink, purple, or white. There’s a stretchable strap so you can attach it to your backpack, bike handles, or wear it on your wrist.
Life n Soul sells this product for $24.99 on their website, and can also be found on Amazon, or in stores like Best Buy, Wal-Mart, and Staples- to name a few.
With the holiday season underway now that Halloween is over, you might be in the market for an inexpensive pair of Bluetooth earbuds. I have reviewed many in the past, but Life n Soul’s MT 101 is pretty good for your price.
The MT 101 has a small Bluetooth adapter as well as a small set of earbuds. This adapter will actually work with any pair of wired earbuds, turning any pair of earbuds into a wireless one. By the way, the adapter is Bluetooth 3.0 and can pair up to two devices at once.
If you want to get a hold of these, head on over to the Life n Soul site and lay down about $39.99 for them.
