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.
Cool app. Able to follow 👪 family. Wish it did some more things and work off line. Wish I could block or take some of my contact out. Don't need to hit the wrong 📞 phone number. I hope one day it will let us chosen what contact to keep on the app.
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.
Works great I love being able to let a friend see where I am when I'm out walking or on a date. :) I disagree about making it more than 4 hours. This should be plenty of time to get where you're going and your friend can check in on you if you've been gone too long or didn't add more time. This is a great safety feature.
