The TINE App #ProductReview

The TINE App 

So, I just love how technology is making it easier for us to move beyond the screen and connect with people we care about. I was recently introduced to a new smartphone app called TINE (pronounced “tiny”). This free app is a brilliant cross between post-it notes and YouTube! 

What is the TINE app?

Once you download the free app to your smartphone, you have to order the little stickers that go along with the app. They are called TINE tags and you get them free with your app download. TINE tags have a small QR code that can be scanned by any smartphone.

To use TINE, it is simple. 

  1. Place the sticker where you’d want someone to find it. 
  2. Scan the tag using the app. 
  3. Record an audio or video message and hit Save.

Now you message is saved on that tag. When the person comes along and scans your TINE tag QR code, they will hear or see your recorded message on their phone. TINE even notifies you when someone hears your message.

How can you use it?

As a mom, when I discovered this handy little app, I immediately thought of all the ways I could use this – both for sentimental reasons and some a little more day-to-day functional. Here are just a few of the ways that I use TINE in my house:

  • Record a message or book for my kids. Attach the TINE tags to each page of the book. Scan and record each page into the tag’s QR code. This is a great way for your kids to hear your voice or to share a special message if you are out of town.
  • Attach a special message to a gift you are giving.Turn that gift into an interactive experience for the recipient. I could see the grandparents loving a video of the grandkids singing “Happy Birthday” on their next package.

  • Mark key “honey-do” projects for your honey. Sometimes a project needs more explaining that a simple to-do list. Attach a TINE tag to a key place where the project needs to take place, and record your vision for that project. This works great in our new house where my husband is handling some projects where I have specific details about hanging a picture or painting a wall. 
  • Attach your vacation video to the scrapbook. This is a great way to combine the memories of a scrapbook with the digital media of the 21st century without needing Facebook. Take that vacation video and attach it to your TINE tag’s code. Place that code in your family scrapbook for those nostalgic moments in the future.

There are thousands of ways you can use the TINE app. How would you use it?

Download the app.
