They let you down as soon as you need them. It's not worth the risk. I've tried so many times to love these aesthetically beautiful little things (I have 3.)
So I liked their idea and supported them on Kickstarter. However this app is crap. The battery unit often falls out of the metal holder. Then because the app gets closed by the OS (never before did I want any app to want one to stay active) the alert it was left behind never happens. It has 2 flaws the Pebblebee itself and the app that supports it. 5 rings of waste I can't give them away it's so bad.
In our family we have an iphone 6 plus, a Samsung Note 4, and a Yoga 10 tablet. Could not get either of the two Pebblebee Honeys I bought to work on any of the devices. Besides the money, quite a bit of wasted time spent on this product.
Moto 4G 2016 phone. I work as a software engineer in test for mobile QA Android. This is my QA opinion. Pros: devices are asthetically pleasing. Led and sound work great. Cons: App logs me out randomly. I suspect it's the life cycle onDestroy() but could also be a memory leak. I want to really like this product and it's innovation but if it's off when I need it, that defeats the purpose. Good luck Peeblebee...I know it's tough with so many devices in the ecosystem. P.S. if you need an alpha tester to help improve the stability, just let me know, I'd love to help. :)
If you are having issues detecting your pebblebee with the app, after installing the app, head to your app list, in your settings of your phone, find the pebblebee app, and force stop. Then reopen the app and try to reconnect, it worked for me. The only thing I didn't like is it has its own camera feature to take photos with versus using your own camera app, wish I could use my own.
Terrible, even the core functions of locating and sounding the phone alarm don't perform properly. Wanted to support the idea but resorted to buying Tile to replace pebblebee. Disappointing.
