Glympse is the simple and private way to share your location. Want to let someone know where you are? Just send a Glympse! Install and share your location in real-time with others in seconds! No sign-up, no passwords, no new social network to manage. Glympse sends a link with your ongoing location to anyone via email or text message. Best of all, the recipient doesn't need any special software to be able to see your location. They get a link that shows your real-time position, and optionally your speed, a message, a destination, and your ETA. And, Glympse makes it hassle-free by only sharing your location for the time period you choose, and then it automatically stops. The latest Glympse updates for Mango allow for Fast App Switching and creating Favorite Tiles on your Start page. Unfortunately, the WP7 Mango update does not allow applications to utilize real-time location sharing in the background unless you screen-lock while running Glympse. Current limitations for the Windows Phone 7 version of Glympse: - Glympse cannot share your location in the background, but it can continue to send your location under a locked screen. Please see the Preferences screen under Settings for the option to enable this feature. - SMS invites are delivered from a Glympse number and can only be sent to numbers located in the domestic United States. - There is no automatic way to launch the Glympse app from a web link/url. - If you would like to view a received Glympse in the app, you will need to cut/paste the entire invite URL (http://glympse.com/ABC-123) or code (i.e., ABC-123) into the text box found in the "View a Glympse" page.
2/28/2014Needs to be updated to take advantage of WP8.
2/18/2014Baaaaaaad Cant even share via whatsapp
1/30/2014This app does not work well for me. It updates locations too infrequently. I get updates somewhere between 10 and 15 minute intervals. Not adequate for my needs. I tried to use this to monitor my child who takes public transit home. 15 minutes between updates for this kind of use is not great. Will have to look for another solution.
1/21/2014App so useful. But urgently deserves an update
12/25/2013Needs update...why doesn't the phone acknowledge the app is installed it opens the browser instead
12/22/2013I think the look of the UI is great. kinda sucks that you can't launch the app direct from a received link as you can in android and iOS. And what is the reason for using a odd SMS address? Shame there hasn't been an update in over 2 years!
11/23/2013Beautiful, and very usefull!
11/20/2013No update since 2011... This app used to be great but needs updating... Uninstalling since it barely works now... Sad
11/16/2013Love this for tracking friends when getting together. Shared from an iPhone friend and so happy to see it works on my Nokia.
11/16/2013It works as designed. Thanks!
