Description

Glympse is an app that lets you temporarily share your real-time location with family, friends, co-workers and more. It visually answers the question, “Where are you?” Glympse gives people and businesses power to share real-time locations safely, securely and temporarily, regardless of what type of mobile device they all have.

The app uses the GPS capability in your mobile phone to let you share your location in one of two ways:
Via a web-based map for a predetermined period with anyone you choose who does not have the Glympse app
Within the Glympse app for a predetermined period for those who, like you, have the Glympe app downloaded.

Sharing your location with someone is referred to as "sending a Glympse." A Glympse goes out as a link via text message. When recipients click on the Glympse link they can view your location on a map in real-time using any web-enabled device for as long as you choose to share with them.

Send a Glympse to let friends know you are on your way to meet them. Request a Glympse from a colleague who is running late to a meeting. Set up a Glympse Tag with your biking club. Create a Glympse Premium Tag for an upcoming local Santa parade. Those you share with can view your Glympse from any web-enabled device, no sign-up or app required.

Glympse is the pioneer of location-sharing. Since 2008, we have been providing solutions that offer communication between the right people at the right time when it matters most. Our solutions operate successfully with minimal data retention, and by default, we do not keep data, nor do we harvest or sell it.

Features
Glympse Private Groups
Glympse Private Groups is a feature in Glympse that creates a private, invite-only Group. You give members control over who can be a member. All members of a Group can share their location and request the location of other members – all visible only to those in the Group. Private Groups are ideal for sharing with family, carpools, sporting teams, groups of friends and more.

Glympse Tags
Glympse Tags is a feature in Glympse that allows you to quickly view and share location with multiple friends on a single, shared Glympse map. Glympse Tags are public spaces (similar to Twitter/X hash tags) where anyone who knows the Tag name can view the tag map and add themselves to that map. When you view a tag map, what you are seeing is a map of people who have chosen to join the tag map (example: !SmithFamilyReunion or !SeattleCyclingClub).

Glympse Premium Tags
Glympse Premium Tags is our premium offering in Glympse that provides customization options to personalize and brand the Glympse experience. You can create a one-of-a-kind experience by uploading your logo and branding, map out certain routes you plan to make stops at, as well as other branding elements. Glympse Premium Tags is ideal for events such as community parades, Santa parades, food trucks, marathons, and so much more.

Awesome app

Glympse allows me and my wife to make most of our time. We both have to commute but only have one car. I cannot use public transport to work, so I use the car. I drop off my girl friend at the train stop every morning before I drive to work, however, picking her up in the evening is not that easy since I might be stuck in traffic or her bus/train is caught up by the rush hour. Being on each others' screen through Glympse makes it much easier to still time our pickup well. If she is running late, I go to the store adjacent to the train stop first. If I am running late, she walks towards the way she sees me taking on glympse.
Also, for longer driving without the other you can always make sure you know what's going on so that I can have dinner on the table by the time she is home for example. We seriously use Glympse every day. Just great!

Missing 1 feature but AWESOME otherwise

To the developers of this awesome app.
I use glympse to let my clients on my limo bus find my location throughout the night. The great part is they don't have to install any apps to use it. It is a web based link they can see me from. The part I wish this app had was a way for them to see their own location on that link, or a way for them to connect their dot to my dot. I often have to park in an area just within walking distance but it gets difficult to describe to them where they are in relation to my location. This would be an amazing feature to include in a future update.

Navigation buttons and editing location names

First off, I haven’t used it yet. However, during the setup process, I discovered a couple issues.

First, the little itty bitty tiny back arrow is way too small. I’m not someone with giant hands trying to type on an iPhone 3, just an average Joe, using an iPhone X. I found that I have had to attempt to push/tap/mash the back arrow, about 5-10 times before it would go to the previous screen. If I was attempting to see, much less touch the back arrow while driving, I’d end up being some statistic. Please make it bigger and more distinguishable from background color. **Note - I wouldn’t try to use it while driving since my vehicle now recognizes the app.

The second issue... In trying to rename a location, I finally discovered that I must hit return on the keyboard, which only makes the keyboard disappear, then I have to try my luck again with the back arrow. How about a “save” or “update” button, which automatically takes you back to the previous screen.

Once I actually use it, and if I discover anything else of note, I will update my review. For now, it’s a 4 of 5, based on the hopes that it works as well as all of the previous reviewers have raved about, with the option to increase once issues are addressed.
