Great app when it works. Unfortunately it only works when kept in the foreground, switch to any other app and switch back will cause the app to freeze. Also, no updates since 2014!!!

Very nice app to share your location with someone else. It's better than the share option in Waze, for comparison. But I've already had problems when it lost connectivity or ran for too long and it crashed.

Works fine, but no option to login with glympse account or socials (facebook). The android version is much better.

Please keep this app updated. It is great, but it would be way better if it were as good as the other versions.

A great idea but it only sends location information when the app is running in the foreground.

Since the denim update the app keeps crashing on both my windows phones while sending a Glympse. Finding the app useless right now. Would love to see a bug fix. I can view someone else's Glympse all day as long as they don't have the denim update.

App has improved quite a bit in the last year, but still missing features from iOS version. Biggest in my opinion is the ability to request location share.

I for one don't like the new feature that makes you send a glympse separately to each one of group of several friends. It turns an easy one-click process into something tedious and time consuming.

This works great and doesn't require the recipient to have the app. I like that I can pin a preset Glympse to my start screen like "I'm on my way home" and easily let me family know where I am and when to expect me.

App details

Version notes

New in recent updates: Background operation - Glympse will now be able to run in the background. This enables users to share their location continually, for the amount of time set, while using other applications and without having to update settings to allow permission for Glympse to run while the screen is off. International phone number support - Glympse now leverages the default messaging app on the device to allow users to share their location with any phone number supported by their carrier. Easier view-in-app capability - Viewers can now easily launch and view a Glympse in the app from a link received in a text message or email through the "View in App" button in the Glympse web-viewer. Description of update: Update: New - Added ability to Pin a Glympse shortcut as a Tile to Start New - Multiple SMS recipients get delivered individual invite codes -- requires you to send multiple messages! New - "Prompt to stop Glympse" on arrival at destination option now re-prompts you to stop when opening the app, if you missed the Notification Toast earlier on. Fix - Pressing OK too quickly on Confirmation page no longer interrupts sending SMS invites. Fix - Editing a shortcut or re-sending an expired Glympse now allows removal of recipients. Fix - Map tile in the app's main screen now updates viewer-counts more frequently when you have an active Glympse Update: Fix - International users should no longer have data loss issues involving shortcuts or destinations. Fix - International users should no longer crash when using the destination picker. Fix - Setting distant destinations should no longer crash. Fix - Several cases where attempting to resume using the app (after tombstone) should no longer crash.
