Disclosure: I was sent a sample from the vendor in order to write up an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.
You know you are getting old when you forget where you put things. Maybe it is me being tired lately with all the craziness of the upcoming holiday season or even from my pneumonia, but I swear my memory is going. One minute I am checking my phone or the iPad for messages, and then next I am trying to retrace my steps because I can't find it. I have gone crazy turning the rooms in my house upside down trying to find my stuff. I have even started asking the girls if they have seen things when they go missing, and bribe them with a $1 or trip to the store, for the first one who can locate and bring said missing item to Mommy. I know, I am bad...but, when you can't find your phone (which we all can't live without), you, too, would resort to bribery.
But, thanks to a cool new tracking device called TrackR, I no longer have to stress out when I loose my phone or iPad. Thanks to this coin-sized Bluetooth device, I can locate my lost item in seconds. You are saying to yourself right about now that you need a TrackR, too....right? Come on, you know you have found yourself trying to retrace your steps to find your lost belongings. What if there was an easier and quicker way to do it -- and without any stress or headaches? Well, this is where the TrackR comes in, as you can attach this to practically anything including your wallet, laptop bag...even your pets. When you attach the TrackR to your precious belonging, you never have to worry about it getting lost ever again. And, if it does, a quick tap of the TrackR app (which is FREE to download), will locate its last known whereabouts for you, helping you quickly locate it from anywhere.
Say you left your wallet at a friend's house, or dropped your car keys on the floor of your car (what my husband seems to do all the time), you can be in your house and access the TrackR app from your phone and locate your missing item. This is great, as I have used other tracking devices -- yeah, you know those ones where you whistle or clap and it beeps until you find it -- but, you had to be within certain range for these devices to work. This really isn't realistic or helpful in today's day and age when we are always on the go.
I am so glad I don't have to worry any more when I find myself misplacing my iPad in the house, as it is being tracked with the TrackR app, and can be back in my hands in no time. :-) Problem solved.
With the holidays fast approaching, why not consider gifting your friends and family with the peace of mind of never having to worry where they left an important belonging like their phone, iPad or laptop bag again? Get everyone on your shopping list a TrackR and know you are giving them a gift they will thank you for, time and again, when they find themselves saying, "Where did I leave my....?" To make the TrackR a more personable gift, consider their custom printing options when ordering. You can choose any photo to print directly onto a TrackR, making it the perfect personalized, low-cost gift this holiday season! :-)

Track it down. From anywhere.
"If an item goes missing, the TrackR app records its last known location on a map. When another user of the TrackR app comes within a 100ft range of your lost item, you will receive a GPS update of where your item is."
Plus, with the world’s largest Crowd GPS network, when an item is truly lost, the entire TrackR community is activated and will anonymously update the customer with the exact GPS location of their lost item.
Finally, with custom printing options, you can choose any photo to print directly onto a TrackR, making it the perfect personalized, low-cost gift this holiday season!
