I think the idea behind this app is awesome. When I first downloaded it about the first 5 times I used it I never had any issues with it but after that all of a sudden anytime when I have received or sent glimpses to others or from others their locations or mine tend to freeze. I have yet to use this app now without having a freeze issue. Sometimes it will work in the first hour of use and then freeze or sometimes it's just frozen from the get go. I was hoping after about three years they would finally have this addressed. They say it only happens when somebody's on the phone but it doesn't seem to matter in my case.
Good app but needs fine tuning
Generally it's a good app. But I hate the fact that I have to have location service always on. This drains the battery. I wish it would have the option of "while using" for location services. The alternative is to turn it off when not using and turn it back on each time I use the app. Well, that's just stupid and inconvenient.
Glitch in remove
When I click the button to remove someone else's expired Glympse, instead there's a little banner at the top that says "Glympse extended by 15 minutes". I'm not even sure which Glympse is being extended, cause it's not theirs...
