BOUNTE Releases Lost & Found Mobile App that Turns Good Samaritans into Bounty Hunters

LAKE FOREST, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–BOUNTE™, LLC, a leading lost and found software and technologies
company, today launched the world’s most intelligent lost and found
mobile app, available at the Google Play and Apple App stores. The
BOUNTE app uses mobile and messaging technologies to help people quickly
find lost items such as pets, jewelry, laptops, phones, sunglasses and

BOUNTE uses geolocation technologies to push out relevant location-based
alerts, including on social media. BOUNTE also broadcasts to users
whether a bounty is available and specifies the reward amount.

“Everybody in their lifetime will lose something like a wallet, ring or
phone. It can be frustrating, time consuming and sometimes heartbreaking
to frantically look for valuables and come up empty,” said Stephen
Sinclair, BOUNTE CEO. “BOUNTE solves this problem by broadcasting your
lost item on the app’s network, instantly tapping a search team. Owners
also can offer a reward, turning the search into a treasure hunt.”

People typically look for lost items on social media, online lists,
school websites and public safety boards. These options are not very
effective because they are siloed sites slow to reach an audience that
can readily help.

  • Signup for BOUNTE is free. Posting items costs $1.99. To post, enter a
    description, photo, location and bounty (optional).
  • BOUNTE users within a relevant geographical region are then notified.
    Also, anyone with an Android or iPhone can check and see what’s been
    lost in their location. Then, they can start searching, too!
  • BOUNTE offers one-click posting to chosen social networks.
  • The finder notifies the owner by tapping the screen’s found button.
  • For no cost, searchers who find a lost item not yet posted tap the
    button, “I Found Something!”
