Fails when you need it Finally actually lost my keys after having this for 6 mos. App crashes every time I try to ping the device. Good idea, just doesn't work.

Unable to use as trusted device Unable to set as trusted Bluetooth device since it will only connect to the phone via the app. App is hard to find in the play store. User interface is very simplistic and in need of improvement. Leash function seems to be hit or miss in my experience.

Should put 'Pally' in the app name It is hard to actually find the Pally Smart Finder app since Pally isn't in the name and I had no idea who Ace Sensor is after ordering the device on Amazon. I'm using this with a new Pally Smart Finder fob and my Galaxy S5. Once set up it is working well for the 'Leash' function, which is why I wanted this technology - to tell me when I unintentionally walk away from my phone. The product fob only shipped with iPhone instructions, and this app is not very intuitive, especially for setting up Leash, so it is best to visit the Pally website and download the Android guide. I find that the medium range mode can still leave me un-notified at a distance of 24 feet in my house, so I am using the short range mode. The fob's beeper is loud enough that I hear it well when in my pocket, if it sounds off because my S5 is out of range. Once figured out, the app works OK, but it could be made with a more intuitive interface. Since I had no Android setup guide, I had to guess and tap on 'Find' to access the hidden Leash menu. They should have put Leash accessible from the Android Menu button typical to most apps.

Easy set up Quick, two minute pair, and reliably works within Bluetooth range. Meets expectations.
