What a forgetful bunch we can be. It’s estimated that Australians lose around $1.2 billion worth of personal belongings each year. And along with the waste of money, the time and frustration involved in tracking things down can quickly add up.
The LOFO app aims to help people reconnect with their lost property without the need to post notes on shop windows and neighbourhood trees. It provides a centralised platform where details can be posted of items you have lost or found. Just post a missing object with an approximate location and receive a notification when it is found. Include a reward and the post will appear on the app’s wall.
The global platform makes LOFO handy for regular travellers and holidaymakers, and the app also has a marketplace where found items can legally be sold if not claimed. Users can keep the money or choose to donate it to charity.
