Real-Time Location Sharing: This can be used to share one's location with a chosen contact, for a set period of time, more-or-less in real time. One could probably do something similar with Google Now's Commute Sharing. But, this is more direct.
Glympse is a fast, free, and simple way to share your location safely using GPS tracking in real time with friends and family! No sign up required! Only those you share with can view your Glympse from any web-enabled device. Download Glympse today!
~~~ Here’s what our users have to say about Glympse! ~~~
★★★★★ “The best family and friends finder out there. If you need something that will help you stay in contact with your loved ones and you don't get this app then you are missing the boat” - via Google Play review
★★★★★ “No other location app I have used comes close to this one for accuracy and reliability. Used to keep track of the family unit, great for me.” - via Google Play review
★★★★★ "Absolutely LOVE this app! I take the bus home from work and my husband picks me up at the bus stop. I send a Glympse when I get on the bus and he can track the location. We also use it when we are running 5k, 10k and half marathon races. It works fabulously!" -via Glympse support
