SUCCESS!! Stretch Goal #1 - $25,000 - Android Support for Wallet TrackR
We will be supporting Android at Launch. The Samsung Galaxy S3, Note, and other Bluetooth 4.0 Android phones will be supported.
What is a Wallet TrackR?
The Wallet TrackR fits easily into any wallet - just like a credit card. When combined with the free Wallet TrackR iPhone app, it becomes a powerful new tool to keep you from losing your wallet. When the Wallet TrackR gets separated from your iPhone or iPad, the Wallet TrackR app gently alerts you that you may be leaving your wallet behind.
The app also takes a GPS snapshot of where your wallet was at the moment of separation in case you didn't hear the alert. Tap a button within the app to make your wallet "ring" in case your looking for it around the house or in the dark. The technology works both ways, which means your wallet can beep to alert you that you're leaving your phone behind. Works with your iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, new iPad, iPad mini and the new iPod Touch.
How does Wallet TrackR work?
If you forget your wallet, the App will play your favorite song and the Wallet TrackR will beep before you get too far.
Lost and Found Map
The App remembers the location and time you separated from your Wallet TrackR and can show you on a map.
Is your wallet hiding?
If you cannot find your wallet, press the FIND button in the App to cause the wallet to beep.
Battery Life: 1.5 years
Device Compatibility: iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Mini, New iPod Touch, Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy Note, Android Bluetooth 4.0 Phones
What People are Saying
"it could be its handiest device yet"
"the next great way to safeguard your wallet"
"I am really excited about this, not only because of the technology, but because of the affordability. It's a small price to pay to keep track of your valuable gear."

The Item TrackR App
The App is already available for download. Try out the Item TrackR App for yourself today by using it to track your Bluetooth Headset or Car.
The App has an iPhone and iPad Interface. The App can keep track of 10 items simultaneously. In fact, the iPad has a special screen for you to interact with all your items on a single screen.
From the app you can set a custom icon, ring the device, see on a map where you last left your item (or where you parked your car if that is what you are tracking). You can also be alerted with a custom ring tone.
The separation alarm enables you to be reminded that you are leaving your item (or phone) behind with a brief chime.
The app also has an Anti Theft Mode which will cause the wallet trackr to continuously ring if your wallet gets stolen. It's a modern day car alarm. You can silence the alarm with a single touch within the app.
With the app design, we tried to simplify the entire ui and enable users to access core functions as quick as possible. If you have any feature requests or feedback, we would love to hear it. firstname.lastname@example.org or chris (at) phonehalo.com

THE WALLET TRACKR STORY:
My roommate always misplaced his wallet and it caused him to run late. At that moment, I realized he wasn't the only one with this problem. I called Chris, and my friend from college, to brainstorm on solutions to this problem. Our goal was a simple and seamless solution to prevent the problem of misplacing their wallets. Wallet TrackR was designed to be the thinnest solution possible Most people place their wallet in their back pocket, so the design is sturdy enough to sit on.
Chris is a proud geek and lover of all things electronics and gadgets. Chris studied electircal engineering at University of Califronia Santa Barbara where he met Christian. After graduating, Chris started making consumer electronics devices and mobile applications. The projects chris has been involved with have won awards from Popular Mechanics, CES, and more. Chris is an avid surfer and kite surfer.
