Stick-N-Find Stickers have a Range of about 100 Feet, with a Battery that lasts for over a year.

(App will notify you)

 

 

 We made an amazing app for Stick-N-Find,

with many features...

 

The first feature is a simple radar Screen.                  Iphone Radar screen

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Radar Screen will display all your devices in a Radar type Screen. Of course, because we don't really know direction, the radar Screen can only be used to approximate the distance of the Stick-N-Find to your phone, but not direction. So once you have located on the Radar Screen a Sticker you would like to find, you start walking in a specific direction, and see if it gets closer or farther.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can tap the Sticker on the radar screen and decide if you would like it to Buzz, Flash the lights or both.

Then we have the Virtual leash feature.

Virtual Leash

 

 

 

 

 

 This allows you to create a virtual Leash on a sticker, if that sticker moves away more than the approximate selected distance from your phone, your phone will Alarm you. You can even select the type of Alarms per different Stickers.

You can also create a Reverse Virtual Leash: You put a Sticker on your keys etc, if you forget your phone behind, the sticker on keys will buz. You have to have the SticNFind app runnig on the background for the reverse Virtual leash to work.

 We also then made the “Find IT” Feature.

Find it feature

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Say you are looking for a missing Sticker, that your phone can not find, or is not in range. Once that Sticker is in Range, your phone will Alert you.

 

Stick it on your suitecase

Imagine you could Stick a Stick-N-Find Sticker on your Suitcase. When all the suitcases start coming out on the belt, you can sit down and wait. Once your Suitcase is within Range, your phone will Alert you, you can get up, and take your suitcase.

 

 

Washing Dishes

 

 

 

 

You could also stick the Stick-N-Find on your wife’s car. Once she pulls in the driveway, you get a notification, clean your mess, and go wash dishes before she comes in.

StickNFind Task Launcher.  *NEW APP*

By placing Stick-N-Find stickers in your Car, Home, Office, etc., the StickNFind Task Launcher app has the ability to change automatically a user’s phone settings, launch applications, change ringtone music etc.

For example, stickers can be put in different locations such as the door of a conference room. As a user walks in to attend a conference, the app will change the phone’s ringer to silent.

Other features include the ability to choose different tasks for different rooms. Music can be automatically turned on for one area while a navigation app may be started when sitting down at the wheel of a car. The app can even change the user’s ringtone when you get home, or check into Facebook depending on what location is accessed by the user.
StickNFind task launcher will be available in March for Android devices supporting Bluetooth 4.0
We are also working on an iOS version. Pending Apple’s approval, StickNFind Task Launcher for iOS will be ready by early summer.
