Tile has other major problems

I have a bunch of Tile tags, and Tile is very, VERY pissed off with me for not allowing them to grab tracking information 24/7.

When you install the Tile app, it is so desperate to get hold of your tracking data that every single time you start up the app it will whinge at you for not allowing it to run in the background and have access to location data. As a matter of fact, the app uses every trick in the book to stay running by, for instance, setting itself up for background refresh.

This also means that if you start up the Tile app it will start whinging all over again that it needs your location and inside leg measurement to work properly, and no, it doesn't, not for my use (finding cases and my keys).

Is the hardware good? Ish - it has the best range, so I keep using them even though they're sometimes hard to wake up. But the app and the attitude of the company who seems to think it has some sort of right to my data is starting to seriously piss me off.
