Needs to be opened twice 2/5
Hasn’t been updated in a long time. Useless while driving. Isn’t it a “drving” app? Can’t use it hands-free and NOT compatible with AppleCarPlay. Good app, otherwise.
Great App 5/5
This app puts me as ease as a mom. I can always know that my kids are fine as they are traveling.
Love it 5/5
Can watch my
Loved ones when they travel
I love Glympse 4/5
Occasionally a bit buggy, but overall works great and I really like this app!
Love this app, when it works 1/5
I love everything about Glympse, except the fact that it hangs nearly 100% of the time when I’m starting a new Glympse to someone.
The only way to get past the hanging is to force close the app and restart it.
I tried to email the team first, but the email us link on the Glympse website would not work for me.
Great app. 5/5
By Michael Nethersole
I use this app all the time. For clients and family. If they’re wondering where you are and when you’ll get here, they don’t need to call. Just look at the Glympse. Then they know if they should start the dinner or wait a bit. It’s great. And I recommend it to everyone.
My husband and I use Glympse daily👍🏻
He is a runner and biker...I love seeing where he is and that he’s ok.
We have used it to find each other while out walking or even to show where we are located while driving.
Love using it!
Glympse is a wonderful app 5/5
As a runner with an Apple Watch, Glympse is a great app. I can put my iPhone in my pouch, then start a session to follow me from my watch right before my run. No other location so I've found had this convenient feature. Please keep development going on the Apple Watch app!
5 Starz 5/5
5 Starz says it all!!!
Here I am 5/5
I use this to track my progress while out on my motorcycle. That way if something happens, someone can see my progress or lack of it.
Da Best! 5/5
Simply the best app. Simple, great web map with a shareable link. Tried other gps apps and this one is the best!!
By A tracker
I use Glympse to keep me safer when I go out to walk or run. I text a friend who keeps an eye on me. I love this app!
Company is Coming 4/5
It’s nice to be able to anticipate your companies arrival.
Wonderful App!!!!!!!🌿☀️☝️ 5/5
By Morgan Executives LLC
It’s a wonderful app for many reasons! You can track your work & family. You’ll know where your kids are. We enjoy this app and thank you!
Does what it’s designed to do. 4/5
This is a straightforward app that works. Worth the price!
By Small Fry 1938
Been using this app for a year now and all of a sudden it kicked everyone out. It will not allow me to open a group for my family. It’s been great but what’s going on?
My favorite for real-time sharing 5/5
I prefer this over Apple’s location sharing or google maps, or Waze. This lets folks see real time location with speed, and it’s easy.
Down-side: it’s the only thing it does well.
Was great...now...meh 3/5
Was the best app around for tracking someone, however now it NEVER updates the live location. I can see original location and MPH...then it freezes and never updates...for HOURS!
AMAZE BALLS 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕 5/5
Awesome and so very helpful .It makes it easier so you can see where a person is when they are on their way .You can also share with other people where you are at and when you will be there ........AWESOME app fell in love immediately ❤️💛💚💙💜
Glympse Won’t send! 1/5
By Bryan Rahoe
For a while now, my iPhone X Glympse app won’t open a text message to send a Glympse! It’s almost a 1 star at this point, but I love the concept, this just needs to be fixed. The app doesn’t work! Very rarely does it work, and I can’t trust that it will, so I do t use it! Please fix this Glympse!
Pat your own back 3/5
App keeps asking me to rate it while I am trying to use it. Which makes it dangerous to use... have to answer it’s stupid self rating system in order to continue use. I like how this app actually works while I am out cycling to let my wife know im moving and safe. I just don’t want to be bugged constantly with rating it while I am moving.
What happened 1/5
When I first got this app I loved it and it worked perfectly. I don’t know what happed or when it stared but it no longer works. I went to app page to check that I had my phone setting correctly for the apps to work and I have all my setting setup exactly as suggested and Glymps no longer works. When ever I send link to friends to share where I am all the app does is spins and never sends the information. I’m currently trying to find a new app that will work like Glymps and I will even pay for one that works.
Simple and useful App 5/5
Glympse is one of the most used apps I own. My husband is s cyclist who bikes in the city. I can view his progress and have on one occasion, was able to determine that he was involved in an accident. To say this app is a lifesaver is true. Thank you Glympse!
Safe travels 5/5
At first I felt like Glympse was a bit stalkerish and unnecessary. However, I’ve come to like using it because of the feeling of security it provides. I travel extensively around the country with my toddler to visit family. My husband travels for work so he often isn’t with us. I can send a Glympse to my husband and the family members we’re visiting so they can see our progress. If I forget to tell them where exactly we’re stopping for a break or to eat, Glympse shows them where we are. God forbid something happens to us on the road, someone can see where we are.
Get out the door faster 5/5
Love Glympse! It’s great to let someone know when you’re on your way. We use it often to let my parents know when we’re on our way. That way when we’re close they start getting ready to leave and are walking out the door as we pull up.
Awesome App! 5/5
I’m an iPhone user, so when my friend added me to her location sharing list on Glympse I was intrigued so I downloaded the app, and immediately loved it. I prefer it to the iPhone location tracker BY FAR!!!! It’s definitely my app of choice. Trust me...YOU’LL LOVE IT!
This app freezes up too often. 2/5
This app could be amazing.. but every single time my daughter uses it coming home from college, it freezes. She’s 5 1/2 hours away and I like to see where she is along the way, but it never fails, it always freezes up before she gets home or back to school. It now says it was last updated 55 minutes ago. I’ve tried exits by the app, going back to the original text where she shared her Glympse, but still frozen. Grrr!!
Good fun 4/5
By ECV 3 Cali
It’s not only nice to have but a lot of fun toying with friends. Can’t wait for more options! Keep it up google you’re the best!!!
Not smart 2/5
I get a Glympse from my wife, but it doesn’t open the app, it only runs in Safari. This is stupid. Why will it not open in the app?
Nope Nope Nope 1/5
“Glympse shares your location information with third parties ...”
iMessage support 2/5
Love this app, however only works half the time anymore. Really tired of having to click “let’s do it” 11 times and being told “fantastic news” and it still not work working from iMessage extension.
Good to know 5/5
Logistical messaging helps with coordination and planning
It's got issues 3/5
When sent a Glympse, i can open it in a browser, but if trying to open it in the App, I get taken to the Apple Store instead of opening the app directly. And the Glympse location still doesn't open in the app even after this.
Simply fantastic 5/5
Stellar app for letting family, friends, business associates, et al know where you are and when you’ll be there.
Very useful 5/5
It works well and my friends know when to come outside
Great app but... 4/5
By Phillip Colligan
...can you please make it to where if you tap the map it won’t ask to add a point to it? So annoying! Also, can you make it so you can remove said point? 👍🏻
Doesn’t work on iOS anymore 1/5
The last several times I’ve tried to use it, it locks up during the send process. It sometimes work if I attempt several times. Sad. Used to love this app.
Fix it and I’ll update my rating.
Amazing app 5/5
My whole family has iPhones and we still use and love Glympse all the time. There’s just something cool and reassuring about watching your loved ones in REAL TIME coming and going.
When my 13 year old babysits our younger kids she likes it when I send her a Glympse when we’re on our way home. She says it makes her feel better and helps her know when to start cleaning up (and turn off the TV! 😂)
Great App 5/5
I use this app regularly to let my wife know when I’ll be home from work. I also use it to communicate etas with my friends.
I love this app
By my nickname 707
Only thing I could think that would make it better is if a texted link opened the app directly instead of having to go through the web first.
Connection to servers keep failing 1/5
This app is completely useless to me. Every time I try to send my location to anyone in my contact list, the app immediately fails in connecting to the network. Every other app on my phone connects flawlessly to either Verizon’ 4G signal or Wi-Fi.
I am uninstalling the app and looking for a comparable replacement.
Two Thumbs Up 5/5
By Dr. Punkin
Best things since slice bread. Ilove being able to share and see my travel journey with family and friends.
Not what it was in the beginning.... 1/5
By Seriously, no name
I travel frequently for work and for the last several months there has been issues with Glympse. With both sending location and if someone requests my location, unless we are both on the phone it will not link. Seems useless if one has no way to pick up the link at another time! AND...most times even if we are both on the phone at the same time it will not link. For busy people, knowing arrival times is crucial!
I have an iPhone, and the app is current. I think this is an important app, but believe me, I’m nearly ready to look at other options, such as purchasing Spot which I would prefer not to do, but the reliability and ease of use, even with tech-savvy people, with Glympse is suffering badly.
Love this app, but... 3/5
I really love this app. However I have been having issues requesting locations. Will not let me get people from my contacts. Once I have three people will not let me do anyone else. Would be super awesome if this were fixed. I would give a 5 star of I didn't have this issue.
