Let Your Family and Friends Know Wherever You Are

Share your location for a set period of time with Glympse

Making plans is fun. Unfortunately, actually meeting often involves back-and-forth text messages explaining where you are along the route.

To remove the mystery, there’s Glympse, a mobile app that allows you to share your exact location with a friend for a set period of time.

Start by downloading the free Glympse app to your Android, iPhone or Windows Mobile device.

When you want to share your location with a friend, add their email address or cell phone number to grant them access to a Google map with your real time location for anywhere from 15 minutes to several hours.

If your friend doesn’t own one of the supported smartphones, they can still view your location from any computer. Glympse even monitors your speed and calculates your ETA.

The service is very handy for groups meeting in large places (like a park or arena) and families waiting on arriving relatives, to say nothing of that annoying friend who is always twenty minutes late.

Now, if only there were a way to Glympse your paycheck.
