Glympse - Share your location


Glympse is the easiest way to safely share your location with someone in real time. Let others follow your location on a dynamic map. You choose who can see you and for how long.

No sign-up needed and no new social network to manage. Recipients receive a link allowing them to view your ETA and location in real-time for the length of time you choose. When the timer on your Glympse expires, your location is no longer visible. Best of all, recipients do not need any special software to view your real-time map. Send a Glympse via SMS, email, Facebook or Twitter, and recipients can view it using any web-enabled device.

User reviews of Glympse - Share your location
A very good way to securely share your location. Works in realtime, configure per journey, always time limited so it doesn't matter if you forget to turn it off. Provides location & ETA in a browser window or in the app for however many people you choose to send it to.

Send location "google" via sms email etc. It's a link that updates itself with your location. simple efficient, superb

My whole family has been using Glympse with great results. A lot less to worry about because the tracking info is only one for the amount of time you specify and to the people you specify. Tracking data can be sent to phone, email or facebook and you can create favorites so it's as easy as hitting a button. Very nice location sharing app.

I use this app all the time. Anytime I'm riding my motorcycle by myself I send a Glympse just in case something happens to me.

One of my top 10 Android apps. I can't believe it's free and will gladly pay a subscription when need be.

Husband loves it I use this app when I go shopping and when I'm showing houses. Both my boss and my husband love this app. It is very precise for location and for estimating time arrival.

I like I like that it doesn't try to do more than necessary. Esp that it doesn't push any social network at me.

love it! This app has been great. I find that on occasion the street map disappears. Perhaps a map refresh would be useful.
