Glympse

A while ago, I wrote about On My Way.  This application allowed you to share your location, and that person could see this location updated in real-time.  That application is not available anymore.

Glympse is a new free application that allows you to do the same thing, but it has some interesting features:

  • Ability to set a time limit, where sharing of your location is automatically stopped.

  • Ability to mark recipients as "favorites", to make it easier to initiate sharing

  • Ability to set a destination, where sharing will automatically be stopped when you reach that location.
