Ratings and Reviews
One of my most useful apps
My whole family loves this. Use it daily to coordinate travel.
This app used to work a lot better. Half the time I can get glympse to generate the text link. The other times I have to force quit the app and try several times while standing on my head. I also get a lot of complaints from the recipients that the links don’t work.
