~~~ 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

One of My Favorite and Most Used Apps
I LOVE this app and not sure why I haven't written a review before. I use it all of the time. The nice thing is, YOU control who can see your location and for how long. Once it expires, they no longer can see your location. Apple has the Find Friends app but it's either they can see you location 24/7 or not at all. With Glympse, you have complete control.
And you can enter your destination so they can see your ETA. You can customize the messages and they can even see how fast you're going. It's useful because when I'm in traffic, I tell them, look at Glympse and they see I'm going 11 mph LOL!
I LOVE this app and couldn't recommend it more. I hope the app developers leave it just as it is and not fix something that isn't broke! It's great!
We use the app whenever we bring children home from school and parents use it to see how close we are coming to the dropoff location so that they can figure time to go there.
Now, the problem is that we drive 3 - 5 hours and we sometime forgot to refresh the gps cuz it lasts only up to 4 hours. We would like to see it increases to 6 hours instead of 4 hours.
It used to be good
I don't know what is going on with this app but every time I use it, it freezes where the person is but the time keeps running. It does says when was the last update but that's it.
I have tried closing the app and reopen the link, I have reloaded it, it is annoying... It's not a reliable app.
Please fix it or give us a way to overpass this issue.
