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!
Needs to be opened twice 1/5
Useless while driving. Isn’t it a “drving” app? Can’t use it hands-free and NOT compatible with AppleCarPlay.
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.
One of my most useful apps 5/5
By Cathy Paull
My whole family loves this. Use it daily to coordinate travel.
Works. Sometimes 2/5
This app used to work a lot better. Half the time I can get glympse to generate the text link. The other times I have to force quit the app and try several times while standing on my head. I also get a lot of complaints from the recipients that the links don’t work.
Safety App 5/5
By Mommy of Furbabies
Glympse helps my family to keep tabs on whereabouts for safety. I feel happier just knowing where they are, and they feel the same way about their dad and me. Thank you for being a free friend and family safety app :).
Great app. Makes me feel safe 5/5
I was in a bad accident and hit my head. I had no idea where I was at. I hit redial on my phone and got my husband. He knew the route I normally took to work. He finally found me and got help. If I had this app he could have looked and sent help immediately. If you drive a lot of backroads, country roads this app is an absolute necessity. If you have teenagers that just started driving, this app is a necessity.
Good lord this is a frustrating app. 2/5
When it works it’s great! Just be prepared to be nagged like your phone is a crack head looking for a fix...expect to need to restart your phone whenever generating a glympse fails or the nagging doesn’t stop, even if you cancel the glympse, it still notify you every minute ‘please switch back and hit send’ even though it’s stuck twirling away until you pull your hair out....
Great App. 5/5
App. Help families keep in touch during trips.
Tried to set up for family travel over Thanksgiving. Nobody could get it to work. Non-intuitive, complicated and no info on how to set up.
Waste of time.
By noone st sll
It good 4/5
I love this app because when I’m at a friends house or something my mom can know where I am and I can know where she is. But the only thing that I would say that I would like to change is that if you have find my iPhone you can just put in there information and know where that are I just wish it were more like that or you could make a friends system like where you have certain people that you have as friends and you can see where they are. But other then that I really do like this app.
Links opening direct to app still broken 3/5
Multiple updates and this feature is STILL broken. I’ve tried all the workarounds and even emailed support for which I never got a response. PLEASE FIX!
Doesn’t load 1/5
Loading takes forever, that is if it decides to load.
Won’t connect to even begin 1/5
Won’t connect to even begin it. I’m trying to verify my phone number. I guess I won’t use it. My phone is an iPhone. My husband has the android and uses this.
Great app 5/5
This app has been great for a long time! I love it ! Definitely recommend!
I am wondering if Glympse ever gets you in trouble since you use it with both your girlfriend and your wife. You might want to read your comment you made about your experience with using glympse. Hey what do I know maybe your wife and girlfriend are down like that,if so, your a lucky man, enjoy!!! Lol
Bugs since IOS 12 2/5
By PC observation
Since the release of iOS 12, the app will not open. It goes to a screen that requests agreement to user and privacy terms, but it won't accept any input. The "Accept" button highlights when pressed, but the app won't open. It appears to work through a shortcut I had built previously, but I cannot modify that shortcut's recipient or destination.
By Nurse stacy
When I first started using this app I liked it but over time it’s become more frustrating because when I try to share my location or request it only works half the time. I keep resending in settings with WiFi or without and yet I get same result from multiple locations. I rebooted my phone and checked for app updates by my version was current. I’m about ready to seek another option because this is an important tool for me and my family.
Stopped working 3/5
It used to be grade but my last three attempts have failed to transition to sending the glimpse to my intended recipients
Glympse only opens in default browser 3/5
I love Glympse! I have no other complaint but ever since I switched to iPhone 8 from iPhone 7 Glympse only opens in safari which is the default browser. It’s frustrating since I can’t find any troubleshooting direction for that.
It’s been a benefit for finding loved ones...
By dissappointed parent
This app isn’t user friendly at all! If your family has iPhones and androids it won’t work very well. I’m deleting this ASAP! All I want to do is locate my kids phone anytime anywhere.
Amazing tool for safety! 5/5
This app is pretty great from a safer perspective. Love it!
Use to be a fan !!! 1/5
Today was a day from hell ...I’m a professional driver and I was recommended by several clients and fellow affiliates as someone who was a good person to use while in Chicago. High end client with a detail who tracks his every move via Glympse and the app decided not to work and made me seem as though I am not up to par with technology. Everything seemed fine now my reputation is marred due to this and this could have been a deal that put me over the top . Tried restarting and refreshing but then Apple just got tired and threw the towel in
By swan lara
This app is a secure way to know where your friends or family are while waiting to meet.
Best way to control location sharing 5/5
I have really found this service very helpful and flexible.
