The StickNFind stickers are available on a normal sales website. This is not crowd funding – this is normal sales. They are completely willing to take several hundred dollars off your hands for their tags today. There is no mention on the site of the tags being pre-release, beta, or in-development.
Yet they post this on facebook earlier today:
We have been reading the comments and wanted to address them. The StickNFind product is compatible with devices that support Bluetooth 4.0, Bluetooth Low Energy, and operate on Android 4.1. The SNF app is, currently, supports the Samsung S3, S3 Mini and Note 2. We are working hard to gain compatibility with the other manufacturers’ devices across the Android ecosystem.
We, in no way, are misrepresenting, conning nor scamming our supporters. The StickNFind product is still in the pre-release stages.
This is not acceptable behaviour at all.
The second a company needs to make a statement to clarify that they are not conning anyone, you know something is badly, badly wrong.
Please do not tell me that this is crowd funding – and I should expect this. They could have delayed the product so it worked (many, many tags are DoA or fail quickly) and they could have communicated the serious Android limitation
