    Glympse - Share GPS location's review

    Published: 2011-11-02, by .

    Glympse is a simple way to share your location: Account isn't needed

    • No account need (nor you either your contacts)
    • Widget
    • Tracks route and average speed
    • Accuracy could be improved
    • Needs to integrate more social networks
    • Battery killer

    "Sharing your location: better as easier"

    Dozens of social networks for sharing your location are coming up. Yet most of them share a catch: you have to create an account, add friends, link other social networks among other stuff before sharing where you are.

    Glympse works different: you just need to download the app and share your location in real-time. Although you can add your profile pic, view your check-in history and add other social networks, there's no need to register. Just share. Share via e-mail, Twitter, Facebook or SMS. Share where you are and where you're going. Share expected time to reach the place, distance and average speed. Share a message attached to your Glympse. Avoid all the bureaucracy and just SHARE. That's what Glympse does.

    Attached to your Glympse sharing, there will be a link to Glympse website. From there, your friends can check where you are and follow your path to your goal. Your friends (or just the people you share your location with) don't need to have an account either. Glympse lets you choose location provider (Google or Skyhook). What's more, you can choose preferred unit (metric or imperial), as well as the parameters you want to share: location, speed, etc.

    Glympse has been developed by Share your Where, an emerging developer who has just launched this app on the market with remarkably success (over 1 Million downloads)·

    Glympse doesn't have extra features as badges or location-based games. However, it's an essential sharing app with no frills. Its simplicity is its keystone.

    I downloaded this app because my dad asked so he could see the progress on our trip. I repeatedly attempted to create an account. Never received the validation code in over twenty tries. Also couldn't find any instructions as how to use it such as how do you cancel a trip? I found out by accident how to extentend the trip timer. Will be uninstalling and looking for a more user friendly app in its place.
