Great location sharing app I've used this app since it first came out. It's an excellent tool for sharing your location. It only shares your location for a short period (a Glympse) and that period is configurable. The best use is when you are picking someone up. They can watch you travel to their location and don't have to wait outside wondering if / when you will arrive. You can also create shortcuts for frequent recipients. My only complaint is that the main use case "share location" is hidden in the side menu.
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!
Love this app! It let's me know where family members are when we're planning a family supper. I can time the rolls perfectly! It's also helped me with my young daughter when she's stuck in traffic. I can typically find out why and either re-route her or have her wait it out. My whole family uses this app!
Often the shared direction is erratic. When my family members are sharing glimpse with me, often I see their route path very erratic - lot of zig zag or the arrow won't move at all in spite of keep the GPS switched on on my phone as well as at the sender's phone. This is definitely making it not so reliable app.
Very helpful! I do a lot of mountain bike riding in semi-rugged terrain by myself. I can send a link to family or a friend to track me. Very nice to kno if I do have an accident someone knos where I am. So far has been very reliable. Those that cannot make the trip enjoy just following along!
Great app with limits Just discovered and appreciated. It is what I looked for from a while. I think you should improve the sharing path, letting people to share directly to a person for external IM apps (like Whatsapp) and giving the possibility to hide unused share methods, like sms. It also should prevent to turn off the screen when a sharing is active (may be optional in settings)
