NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- When those nifty smartphone key finders like Hone sprung up last year, the bummer for many of us was they didn't work with our Android smartphones. That's because only the Apple (AAPL - Get Report) iPhone had the necessary Bluetooth 4.0 technology, which is marketed as "Bluetooth Smart," and the majority of smartphone users don't have an iPhone.Google (GOOG - Get Report) finally caught up and over the summer it added Bluetooth Smart support to the new Android 4.3 operating system. Now, even Android owners can do such cool things as use their smartphones to unlock their doors, control a garden's sprinklers, wear a smart watch that says what's on the smartphone and, of course, quickly find misplaced keys.
