~~~ Here’s what our users have to say about Glympse! ~~~
5 Stars - “This app is awesome... I use it to show people where I am, my eta, to coordinate several people meeting at the same place coming from different directions... It gives people peace of mind, and the option to see it in a web browser is awesome for those who don't yet have the app. Also, it's nice that you can set the Glympse to expire upon arrival for saved battery life.” – Bradley Dunham via iTunes
5 Stars - "Thanks u guys!!! This is so awesome! Now when my parents want to know where I am I just send them a Glympse!!! Thnx!" -via Glympse support
5 Stars - "Absolutely LOVE this app! I take the bus home from work and my husband picks me up at the bus stop. I send a Glympse when I get on the bus and he can track the location. We also use it when we are running 5k, 10k and half marathon races. It works fabulously!" -via Glympse support

What's New in Version 3.8
* Ford Sync 3 Support
* 64 Bit Support
* Bug Fixes
For anyone who hates having to update one or more people about ETA and location when all you're trying to do is concentrate on getting there. Not to mention that when you're meeting someone, nobody needs to guess when the best time for a location update is. Folks can anticipate arrival and leave to meet you when they're comfortable. Finally if someone arrives before you, it's all on them for once! -- 5 star feature: it could use an option for mode of transport. If my train followed the streets like it depicts, I will be very late... and very dead. Excellently executed and functioning app.
Everyone Loves It
One of my favorite apps. It's on my main screen. Everyone I send a "Glympse" to says how cool the app is. They download it. Everyone loves it. And everyone should definitely use it.
As a motorcycle rider, this is he ultimate way to let someone know when I am going to arrive. It's SUPER easy to share and request location. My girlfriend lives a mile away and we still use it! Try it and see.
Pretty good but...
The app has some great streamlined features. However, it makes the assumption that you are traveling by car. I was on a train that stopped frequently so in inaccurately chose a route and wasn't able to correctly say what time I would arrive. Needs an option for travel by other methods (hiking/walking/train/small plane,etc)
