Can't find your stuff?
Posted 9/4/2013 6:36:00 AM

There's an app for that!

Actually, a couple of different apps for different kinds of 'stuff searches'.

If you're just trying to remember where you store or file things in your house (I'm the kind of person that if I don't see it, I forget it exists), the "My Things App" is the way to go. It's a free app that lets you log where everything is, along with pictures - so next time you need to find, say, the warranty on an appliance (or any of those other things you use once a year or less!), you can just search it in the app! A side benefit? If there's a storm or other damage to your home, you'll have a record of everything ... as long as your iPad or iPhone isn't damaged, too!

The other app is more useful for those things you need all the time but constantly misplace. You know what they are - your sunglasses, keys, wallet, charger, the kids! 'Stick 'n Find' is a newly developed (and internet-campaign supported) product that uses Bluetooth technology and your smartphone to help you locate things. You put a sticker on the item, then the phone will locate anything with a sticker within 100 feet of where you are (kind of like using a metal detector to find coins on a beach). Sounds like a lifesaver, timesaver - maybe even a job saver when you're running late & can't find your keys.
