Used to be a bit better I really like this, but it used to be more intuitive- it seems to take twice as many actions to start sharing your position. Personally I use it so the missus can ring for an ambulance if she sees my position stagnate for more than 15 minutes on a ride or run!
Good app but hard on the battery Hey team! I like going for ALL DAY bicycle rides and was wondering if you could send a PING every five minutes instead of a steady GPS feed? Or have a setting that only notifies watchers if I am stopped for x number of minutes?
4-Hour Limit! Useless for trips. You can only set a 4 hour limit, then you have to resend invites to anyone who is monitoring your GPS location. Not good for a teenager you're tracking or an elder senior citizen. They won't remember to invite everyone again while they are driving on a long trip. Absolutely useless.
Surprisingly benign I was very disappointed when Google shut down Latitude. Glympse is the best substitute out there. It works as described, is cross-platform & doesn't decimate your battery. Locations are temporary/as-needed &, while default is 15 minutes, visibility duration can be set to whatever is desired/required. As a free app I thought there must be a catch, but I have yet to find one. This might just be one of the few truly functional & benign apps. Update:2 years later still use it all the time.
Thanks for support Ford Sync. Very useful tool. I am glad it works with Ford Sync. Thanks for this. As improvement i suggest glymps can work as background process and if i want to request someone location it would respond. So no need to share for location - just allow to be asked for location from specified people. Would be useful for kids phone l.
Really stupid You have to send a request to your family member to let you know where they are and they have to answer you. No help if you are trying to locate a teen or their lost phone. When my son answered me, it transmitted as some dude in Saudi Arabia. Worthless!
