    First off, I haven’t used it yet. However, during the setup process, I discovered a couple issues. First, the little itty bitty tiny back arrow is way too small. I’m not someone with giant hands trying to type on an iPhone 3, just an average Joe, using an iPhone X. I found that I have had to attempt to push/tap/mash the back arrow, about 5-10 times before it would go to the previous screen. If I was attempting to see, much less touch the back arrow while driving, I’d end up being some statistic. Please make it bigger and more distinguishable from background color. **Note - I wouldn’t try to use it while driving since my vehicle now recognizes the app. The second issue... In trying to rename a location, I finally discovered that I must hit return on the keyboard, which only makes the keyboard disappear, then I have to try my luck again with the back arrow. How about a “save” or “update” button, which automatically takes you back to the previous screen. Once I actually use it, and if I discover anything else of note, I will update my review. For now, it’s a 4 of 5, based on the hopes that it works as well as all of the previous reviewers have raved about, with the option to increase once issues are addressed.
  • Love glimpse!!!

    By Sbea007
    Love glimpse. I first started using it for family meet ups. I use it when we’re getting together and there are multiples of us coming together at one location. Makes for easy planning if someone is cooking and needs to know when to pull out the roast... also disable your speed insight. My dad doesn’t need to know how late I am or how fast I drive ;) Additionally, I’ve found its great for airport pick ups, surprise parties and other friend meetings. No one is left waiting. You all know exactly where everyone is at and how fast they’re moving. My only wish is that the recent map view with the dotted line was a bit clearer. It’s hard to immediately see where people are at and what road they’re on.
  • Missing 1 feature but AWESOME otherwise

    By pop-up killer
    To the developers of this awesome app. I use glympse to let my clients on my limo bus find my location throughout the night. The great part is they don't have to install any apps to use it. It is a web based link they can see me from. The part I wish this app had was a way for them to see their own location on that link, or a way for them to connect their dot to my dot. I often have to park in an area just within walking distance but it gets difficult to describe to them where they are in relation to my location. This would be an amazing feature to include in a future update.
  • Simple and perfect

    By TimHunter
    Glympse does what it's supposed to do, allow others to track your location and speed. My wife loves being able to keep an eye on me when I'm taking a long bike ride, and I like knowing that she's keeping an eye on me in case something should happen. (Even though she once "caught" me taking an unscheduled stop at the local ice cream shop!) Some years ago I got hit by a car while riding and ended up in the E.R. Nobody knew where I was! If I had had Glympse my wife would've known that something was wrong and could've found me.

    I travel to Service customers machinery and appointments are not always exact because of the nature of what I do. Glimpse allows me to notify multiple appointments all at the same time as to my location and progress allowing them to better plan their day, works great and unlike other apps that claim they do this or that, I have never in the last year experienced one bug or screw up with this app, I’m glad my parents didn’t have this app when I was younger and dating!
  • Great location sharing app

    By Bluto4x
    This app allows you to send a pin of your current location and speed so people can keep track of where you are. An excellent way to keep tabs on family or company coming to visit. What is great for me is that my wife can know where I am in inclement weather or when I am going to be home very late. The only downside is that this is not a Siri recognized app, allowing me to send a Glympse on-the-fly if I forget to send one before I leave wherever I am at.

    By TYM Camp
    We used Glympse for our youth camp so that parents could go to our website and click on a unique bus link and see the location of the bus as it returned to their town. And as Camp Director I could see where my buses were as they came to camp. And the app even shows me how fast they were going and a estimated hours & minutes until arrival. So helpful! Thanks Glympse team; most excellent app.
  • Constantly hangs when sending a glympse

    By alyceneal
    After using this app for years with no problems, the app started hanging when sending the glympse a couple of months ago. I have to hard-exit the app, reopen, and resend the Glympse in order for it to work. I am not sure if the problem was caused by a change in Glympse or iOS, but after months of issues and other complaints, it is still not fixed. I have tried navigating the glympse help menu to find an answer or place to submit a problem, but can’t seem to find any place to get help. Hoping that posting the issue here might help get this bug fixed.
  • Beats phoning ahead!

    By Alan-in-Seattle
    Why call to say, “Well, I should be there at (such-and-such a time) – as long as traffic cooperates” – when you could just send them a glimpse of your location instead? That way, the folks at your destination can just tap the link you sent them and know where you are at any moment until you arrive. It’s a great app, and I use it all the time!
  • Stopped working

    By SparkyCa2004
    I e been using this for a couple of yrs now and all of a sudden it stopped working. Well the only thing that stopped is that it won’t generate the link that I send to people showing where I am at. I have deleted it and reinstalled it but it didn’t help. I tried to send in a message to support but I was not able to get that sent. I do like the app. It is a great thing. I hope to be able to get some support help on this.
