Cobra Tag™ ensures you will never lose your valuables again!
* This is a companion App for the award winning Cobra Tag loss prevention product
*Note- This app will only work with the Cobra Tag hardware marked as compatible with iPod touch (4th Generation), iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 2 and iPad.
A Cobra Tag™ device is attached to your keys, purse, computer bag, or any other item you want to protect from loss. The Cobra Tag communicates with the iPhone’s free app and will remind you if you leave your iOS device or valuables behind. An alarm sounds on both the Cobra Tag and the iPhone (or other compatible iOS device) to notify you the item has been left behind!
If you don’t hear the alarm, the Cobra Tag application can even store the GPS position where you left behind your valuable and display it on a map. Never lose your valuables again!
The Cobra Tag™ is also a 2 way finder. Tap the button on the Cobra Tag to ring your device. If you are looking for your Cobra Tag™ protected item, use the iPhone or other iOS device’s application to make the Cobra Tag™ ring.

Adds localized email addresses for user support.
I am the *worst* about loosing my keys. Or, I was before I got this. After digging through a dumpster bin at my work, certain that I had thrown away my car keys, which ended up being in a pan of food on top of my car, I decided to take action, and after an extended web search, found this app.
The device is small, lightweight, and looks like it belongs on a keychain. Its battery lasts about a week, and takes about an hour to fully recharge. It connects to your phone via Bluetooth, which will drain your iPhone battery a little faster. But if you wander outside of Bluetooth range of your keys, an alarm will pop up on your phone (the app doesn't have to be open), and it will email you coordinates of where you were when you last lost contact with them.
My one complaint is that the alarm could be a little louder. It's about the same volume as the iphone ringtone. But I haven't had any problems with it loosing sync like the reviewer below me.
Amazingly useful device
Bought this on the Cobra website a month ago, and it already saved my keys when I accidentally left them in a restroom while camping. What's really cool is when my keys were lost, my iPhone showed a map of exactly where I left them. Fantastic technology.
Does not work on iph4 & iph5
I tried everything to pair with the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5. How in the WORLD is everyone able to get your cobra tags to work?
When I open Bluetooth (yes, the device is charged all the way), it shows the cobra tag and "not paired". I click on it, and I get a message saying " pairing was unsuccessful". I go into the app, and it says I need to buy the cobra tag WHICH I ALREADY HAVE... BRAND NEW!!
I got three more of these for gifts and I do not want to give crappy gifts! Two have droids, but the other has iPhone 4.
