It is due to the unique Apples AirPods that is the world’s first small sized and wireless Bluetooth headsets for the iPhone.As much as these small devices cost, the growing concern about them is with how ease they can get lost. You thought put them down somewhere and the next moment you can’t find your 160$ Bluetooth headphone! Surely you don’t want that.
Finder’s for Airpods makes sure that you never lose them!
Deucks Pty, a developer who has some experience in making gadget finding apps, came up with this excellent idea of creating a tracking app for the AirPods. What this app does is that it measures the Bluetooth signal from either of your lost AirPods and guides you using a “hot” and “cold” tracking system. Just launch the app if one or both of your AirPods go missing and it will get you to the spot where you misplaced your headphones.
The app helps you find your missing AirPod through graphic lines. A thin line means that you are far away from your AirPod while a thick line indicates you are getting closer to it. The app will also give you a visual clue as to how hot you are how cold depending on the signal from your AirPods wireless signature. Made from his own experience, Deucks has prepared this great app after facing the same issue of losing his AirPods the very next day he brought them.
Needless to say, we can be careless at times and loosing something as small as the Airpods is inevitable. Finder’s for airpods makes a good job at protecting your investment.
Does this app work?
When dealing with any kind of technology there are bound to several factors that can go against it. Since the app uses Bluetooth signals, certain environment factors can cause hindrance to the apps working and slow down the process of connecting to the Bluetooth signature of your lost AirPod.
Another aspect that can act as a limitation to the working of this app is the fact that your lost AirPod needs to be charged to emit the signals. Once the battery levels are depleted, finding your headphones become extremely difficult. Since Bluetooth tracking requires the user to be in close proximity with the other device, finding your lost AirPod becomes effective.
Update on Finder’s for Airpods
As of now, Finder’s for AirPods which was up on the Apple store has been removed by Apple and was deemed inappropriate for the apple store. According to the developer people who have already bought this app can ask for refunds via their iTunes.
