The 500k goal has been reached!

Good afternoon "iFinders"

Great news did come with a new, refreshing morning: we have reached our $500K stretch goal!

One of the results that is part of this, was the "last seen GPS" function and will now be available in the coming iFind APP. The APP will automatically remember the last seen GPS location of each of your tags. It serves as a great reminder when you have no clue where a tagged item could be lost. Using this new function with "Rope" will make iFind an even more powerful anti-lost and anti-theft tool.

That is not all. With you backers' generous supports, we want to make our technique more prevailing. We will include a software development kit (SDK) release in our future plans.

Thank you again to all our backers. We could have not achieved this without your support so far.

      Please read the comments and review the following posted by Sarah:

      For people new to the comments section here, this is for you.

      When I originally pledged, I thought the users commenting were just bullying the creator for more information. After spending a few weeks reading the posts everyday, it's pretty clear that every negative commenter has been 100% justified in their criticism of this project.

      1) The reports the team has posted are using numbers that aren't really possible. (that's the talk about the wifi routers, etc)
      2) There's no mention of the shake-to-find-your-phone feature they advertise.
      3) No videos of a working prototype. That little clip in the video they show isn't real. You can see on the top of the iPhone screen that the Bluetooth system is off, which you would definitely need to have on to pair a Bluetooth device.
      4) The dimensions they give are too small to house the surface area an antenna would need to pick up all the EM's they claim.
      5) At the very, very least the iFind will have to be "recharged" by placing it next to a strong wifi signal once a week or month. In retrospect, this would be fine. Yet WeTag has not brought this up when asked.
      6) The transparency is completely non-existent.
      7) As Mr Bungle pointed out, Apple will not allow apps to "rope" at 5 second intervals. It must be less than 2, which makes the 2nd report even more suspect.
      8) All "testing" has been done themselves.
      9) Their company address is some guys house. Who knows if the house belongs to any of them.

      Am I missing anything? I might just copy/paste this in here every 12 hours. If they ever clear up or answer any of these points, I'll take them off. More likely though, I'll just add more points to the list.

      Backers should read the main comments section for this project, outside of just this update.

      There is valid concerns posted by numerous backers about this project and whether it really exists outside of just pictures and tech reports without much substances or facts. There has been no real evidence that this project is real and requests for details (outside of their self created reports) have not been provided. Details that they have provided has been proven to be wrong. (Your money and your own risk, but do yourself a favor and do some due diligence.)
