I LOVE GLYMPSE 5/5
By Unicorns and rainbows!!!!!
This app has made it so easy to communicate with my friends and family. It's so nice because my parents don't have to constantly be tracking my phone, but instead I can glympse them whenever I'm driving places so they know I got there! I totally recommend this app to anyone who is beginning to drive!
Disaster Relief 5/5
This app has made lives easier for disaster relief volunteers. Thank you Glympse! #JoinTheCrowd
Sharing Location 5/5
By Raph Zam
This app is good for tracking people and seeing where they are!
Must have for cyclists 5/5
I have no complaints about this app, it's a lifesaver for a young cyclists with paranoid parents. It's so easy to use that my parents can understand it and let me go out
Can you please add traffic on your app??
It's Cool for the most part 3/5
By Seattle Rex
The phone client is pretty nice. Unfortunately, the watch version is completely useless, and has been useless for 8 months. I think they released it just to say they have one. Otherwise, I don't see the point. They definitely do not actually work on the watch version. The map, the rare times you can see it, is static and never updates. You will still need to hold your phone to use Glympse. So, decent app if you don't care about watch functionality.
Great since not only for iphones 5/5
This is a great location sharing app. The function I like best is it allows you to share with any other smartphone or web users because the receiver views location in a web browser if they don't have the iphone. Also, the other person doesn't have to be a user of Glympse to view your location.
Great that works with ios4 backgrounding!
I can't believe how long this app is been around and been a great service.
Love this app! 5/5

This happens help me run my business on time and in real time since 2010! Love it! Keep up the great work!
Glympse make me happier than 5/5
By 61 Yankees
a balanced equation.
Love this 5/5
I use it to let my parents know when to expect me to get home.
The strange thing --- I use an airplane to make the commute --- and the app works nearly flawlessly even at 7,000 feet.
It's a bit cool seeing my ground speed at 150 mph.
Best location sharing app just got better 5/5
This app is a lifesaver. I use this app almost every day to let my family know when I'm gonna be home from work.
Nice that I can add my mode of transportation to my Glympse.
This GLITCH situation 1/5
By Dancing Hands
I can related to "GLITCHY". I relied alot on this kind of APP. I am not able to speak to the phone. This is one of the APP to help me find my relative.
Glympse Request 1/5
When I send a Glympse request to friends, it keeps coming back as a link for me to send my own location to myself. I already know where I am!
Glitchy after recent update 2/5
Inconsistent service since I last updated the app on the 22nd. Hope it's fixed soon; it's my go-to app for sharing my ongoing location.
Used to be okay but now when people share their location it will freeze and not update when they are moving on the map, and it always show my location about 10 miles out from my actual location, in the middle of the woods lol
Developers who listen 5/5
12 hour share limit up from 4 hours AND location not always on?! This is great! Very useful app. I use it when taking road trips so my family on the other end knows when to expect me and my wife can check in to make sure I'm still alive (and not speeding.)
No Traffic 1/5
I haven't been able to see traffic anymore. It's a big reason why I use Glympse.
I love sharing for 12 hours! 5/5
By Deep Playa HI
Thank you for listening to our requests, Glympse!
Location services 5/5
First off I love this app. My wife and our families use this all the time. My only problem is the location services. I understand it's needed to use it, but please give us the option to only have it on when we're using it. I hate having apps use my location in the background when I'm not using them. Please fix this and I would give Glympse 5 stars.
App has been updated to only use my location while I use the app. Now it's perfect. Great app and thank you for the change.
Awesome app 5/5
Super cool I can send out a group text and everyone can see where I'm holding so they don't need to keep calling me while I'm driving
Been super glitchy lately! Does not hold on to a connection and I lose the people I am following because the service cuts out! I use this app for a purpose and it is not fulfilling that at all!
I have this app on my phone. The only reason I downloaded it was because it was on the "FORD" apps list.
DOES this app work ON my car instead of my phone.
I would like to know where MY car is (when borrowed or if stolen). I have a 2016 Ford Mustang with SYNCH3. 2 Stars because I have the app---100 Stars if this is installed on my car.
Great at times!! 3/5
I love this app, It does a great job, however there are several times when the app works for a few minutes and freezes up.
App CarPlay support!!! 3/5
Please add this
App is in Spanish? 1/5
Downloaded this app and the entire thing is in Spanish. And yes I'm in the US, on the US App Store, and using an English keyboard.
No, my phone is not set to Spanish.
Location Always On?? 5/5
Update: Location services "Only When Using" is back. 5-stars again. The only thing I'll say is that it took a week for that option to show up even though I downloaded the update and restarted my phone 7 days ago.
This has always been a 5-star app for me, but this update requires location services even when the app is not in use. Why? It never used to be that way. Please go back to the way it was and stop draining my battery. Then I'll change my review back to 5-stars.
We are doing the great loop in our boat and wanted to share our location with friends and family this app is perfect , very user friendly and fast . I shared my location in FB and the only thing I would like to have in the app is to be able to see who is seeing us
This App Rocks! 5/5
It's simple to use, puts me in control of how long I am sharing for, and works on any device!
Needs to fix location services always on 5/5
The reason I used Glympse was because of the fire and forget nature of it where after the time I set the app would stop using the GPS. Now the app causes the GPS icon to always be present as if it is always using location services. Fix this already.
EDIT: This seems to be fixed so I'm updating the review to my previous score of 5 stars.
Works well 4/5
The only minor problem is that sometimes I want more detail of street names on the map.
Location Services - Update 5/5
Update: location services now has the option 'while using the app'. Thank you!
With the new update there is no longer an option to use location while in use only. It's either never or always. Until this is fixed I will no longer be using this app.
By White Lab coat
Downloaded. Too complicated to use or add people in private group. 1 star recommendation. Ugh! Deleted.
it's okay 3/5
By The Super Labrador
this app means well but it's annoying complication and inability to constantly track my friend has made me despise my friend from switching from iphone to android. like now she has to sit in the parking lot somewhere trying to figure out where i am. UUUUGH.
Turn off location services always on 1/5
New version requires ALWAYS ON location services. Caught it pulling my location even though the app was closed, I wasn't sharing with anyone, and I disabled iMessage sharing. App still was pulling my location. Uninstalled.
Need CarPlay version 5/5
I love the app but use it in my F-150 with Sync 3. Works great with AppLink but now that Sync supports CarPlay I can't run it on my display. Need a CarPlay version quick.
Works well, UI needs work 4/5
Are use this app at least three times a week with my kids. It serves a need. I do wish the user interface was more consistent. The screen for adding the first person is completely different from adding a second person. Lord only knows why.
Cross-platform goodness 5/5
Solid app for those who have groups of people on cross platform. We find Glympse to be more useful anyways for location sharing than find my friends because of the update interval. 👍
Awesome app 5/5
By Jurys out
Use it daily
Not great 2/5
By T. Vat.
So my fiancé and I use this when we're heading home from work to put the other at ease since traffic is always horrible where we are. There's always an accident. It's nice because you can share your location for however long you want to share it for. Only thing is, it doesn't accurately share your location. The past couple of times I've shared my tracker with my fiancé it would say that I'm still at work while I walk through the front door. ONE time I was able to track my fiancé's bus ride home from work and then for 10 min it completely stopped in the middle of no where. In summation, it's not very reliable. Giving life360 a shot now.
Location always on 2/5
I like this app for android, so now I got it from my iPhone. The location services are on permanently. I don't see why. Maybe I'll just use Apple's location services instead.
Even bettererer for v3.0 5/5
Glympse is a lifestyle!
Glitch in remove 5/5
When I click the button to remove someone else's expired Glympse, instead there's a little banner at the top that says "Glympse extended by 15 minutes". I'm not even sure which Glympse is being extended, cause it's not theirs...
I think the idea behind this app is awesome. When I first downloaded it about the first 5 times I used it I never had any issues with it but after that all of a sudden anytime when I have received or sent glimpses to others or from others their locations or mine tend to freeze. I have yet to use this app now without having a freeze issue. Sometimes it will work in the first hour of use and then freeze or sometimes it's just frozen from the get go. I was hoping after about three years they would finally have this addressed. They say it only happens when somebody's on the phone but it doesn't seem to matter in my case.
Good app but needs fine tuning 3/5
Generally it's a good app. But I hate the fact that I have to have location service always on. This drains the battery. I wish it would have the option of "while using" for location services. The alternative is to turn it off when not using and turn it back on each time I use the app. Well, that's just stupid and inconvenient.
One of my favs 5/5
I use it all the time with my family and friends. Simple and just works.
Love the app so far, as it's easy for the one who owns me to check in on my whereabouts. Looking forward to iPhone integration with WhatsApp.
Works great 5/5
Latest update fixed the crashes on 7+ iOS beta 10.3 4 and 5. Works great now!
Location services always on 1/5
By Chitown Maria
This used to be an all right app for sharing your location with friends and family. It isn't perfect - the time estimates for how long it takes to get to your destination are typically wildly inaccurate and it doesn't take into account traffic or the possibility of using public transportation. However, it is the best location sharing app I've found since Twist went away that doesn't need to share your location all of the time. But, since the last update, it has location services on ALL of the time, which is unnecessary and drains the battery. I will be deleting the app if they don't fix this.
Bring back location services "while using app" 1/5
I have to manually toggle between this app "always" having access to my location and "never" having that access. Please bring back the option to have it only access location data when app is being used. I use this app less & less because of this issue.
Now tracking location 24/7 for no reason 1/5
I have used this app almost everyday for over a year but the recent update has made this app worthless. Why does the app need to track my location 24/7 even if app has been killed? The only way to stop it is to deny location services and manually turn on when you want to use the app. Please fix or I will delete forever.
