Wonderful!

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
by Jwalthour on 2019/05/18 11:55
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!

Here I am
by Mypeeburns on 2019/05/13 10:46
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!
by codeTOV on 2019/05/08 07:57
Simply the best app. Simple, great web map with a shareable link. Tried other gps apps and this one is the best!!
Safety
by A tracker on 2019/05/06 13:39
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
by Bfoxy2 on 2019/05/04 11:35
It’s nice to be able to anticipate your companies arrival.
Wonderful App!!!!!!!🌿☀️☝️
by Morgan Executives LLC on 2019/04/26 18:19
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.
by BallardSteve1016 on 2019/04/25 02:14
This is a straightforward app that works. Worth the price!

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
by HRLdude on 2019/04/18 23:07
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
by Seb0916cxx on 2019/04/14 22:56
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 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕
by Cammie4453 on 2019/04/11 22:06
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 ❤️💛💚💙💜
Great

Glympse Won’t send!
by Bryan Rahoe on 2019/04/05 23:41
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
by 2thDocUSA on 2019/03/28 05:43
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
by VRod130 on 2019/03/23 15:44
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
by cleverwerx on 2019/03/20 02:57
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!
No

Not cool
Safe travels
by MDerbes on 2019/03/17 12:27
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
by Theshacks on 2019/03/16 14:53
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!
by Sadielucci on 2019/03/09 18:42
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
by JimmyVP on 2019/03/05 13:34
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.
by resa.rae on 2019/03/01 23:37
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
by ECV 3 Cali on 2019/03/01 20:06
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
by nejejrjrjfjfjfjrjrjrkej on 2019/02/28 01:14
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

“Glympse shares your location information with third parties ...” Delete immediately.
iMessage support
by ilikepengwins on 2019/02/18 16:54
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
by 5kut on 2019/02/10 03:46
Logistical messaging helps with coordination and planning
It's got issues
by WantStuff2Work on 2019/02/09 17:15
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
by martmusico on 2019/02/07 20:26
Stellar app for letting family, friends, business associates, et al know where you are and when you’ll be there.
Very useful
by TSublett on 2019/01/30 02:58
It works well and my friends know when to come outside
Great app but...
by Phillip Colligan on 2019/01/23 01:10
...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
by Guruspeaker on 2019/01/20 01:08
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
by $eaHawks on 2019/01/11 12:28
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
by Driver4work on 2019/01/09 03:10
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.

by my nickname 707 on 2018/12/28 23:35
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
by GenericAppStoreNickname on 2018/12/28 21:50
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
by Dr. Punkin on 2018/12/27 18:02
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....
by Seriously, no name on 2018/12/17 18:27
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...
by DarlaBuck on 2018/12/16 17:32
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.
Great!
by Hepto on 2018/12/01 23:05
Great!
One of my most useful apps
by Cathy Paull on 2018/11/26 13:20
My whole family loves this. Use it daily to coordinate travel.
Works. Sometimes
by bmnave on 2018/11/24 22:53
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
by Mommy of Furbabies on 2018/11/24 17:58
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
by CICangel on 2018/11/22 21:20
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.
by RawLiquid on 2018/11/22 06:12
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.
by BenC52 on 2018/11/18 20:12
App. Help families keep in touch during trips.
Ridiculous
by The_Orcanator on 2018/11/18 01:22
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 on 2018/11/17 17:17
No
It good
by ADYGIRAFFE22 on 2018/11/16 20:49
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
by bigwhpwanafight on 2018/11/15 00:11
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
by bghhfsxjjdniy on 2018/11/13 06:41
Loading takes forever, that is if it decides to load.
Won’t connect to even begin
by 504cindy on 2018/11/12 16:41
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
by Chopper21jbler on 2018/11/11 22:30
This app has been great for a long time! I love it ! Definitely recommend!
@elphiablo
by scarey2btract on 2018/11/09 03:29
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
by PC observation on 2018/11/07 01:14
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.
Frustrating
by Nurse stacy on 2018/11/06 20:25
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
by Higzreviews on 2018/11/05 23:36
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
by Puppucino on 2018/10/30 22:03
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.
Uses
by itroosevelt on 2018/10/28 22:50
It’s been a benefit for finding loved ones...
Horrible
by dissappointed parent on 2018/10/27 16:51
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!
by praska on 2018/10/25 00:53
This app is pretty great from a safer perspective. Love it!
Use to be a fan !!!
by Kypaid on 2018/10/19 05:43
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
Glympse
by swan lara on 2018/10/18 18:49
This app is a secure way to know where your friends or family are while waiting to meet.
Best way to control location sharing
by LAsmiles:) on 2018/10/15 21:00
I have really found this service very helpful and flexible.
Wonderful Application
by Sxkoonce on 2018/10/08 17:13
I travel extensively my wife is always worried about me be away. With Glympse she can see location at the touch of a button. Great app!

Locked up
by RJ55 on 2018/10/06 17:48
App completely locked at the TOS screen and pressing the agree button wouldn’t register. The button greyed like it knew I pressed it but the TOS screen stayed up. I had to delete and reinstall the app.
Love this app
by pjwjones on 2018/10/03 15:04

Hangs when sending
by BillBlasko on 2018/10/01 20:58
I would have given this 5 stars up until a few months ago when it started hanging when sending an iMessage. It never actually sends. If I use the share sheet it works, but that’s not convenient.
Crashes
by Manderkel on 2018/10/01 12:44
App would not send SMS verification code so I proceeded as guest. When I try typing a name for myself the app instantly closes. Unusable
Doesnt work
by Steph cobb on 2018/09/30 20:22
App shut my entire phone down and when I started it back up and wanted me to login again said it was sent to my phone and never did and now it doesn’t work anymore.
Crashing
by Ronin K-9 on 2018/09/30 00:13
Trying to use the app for the first time. Have requested three validation codes and not received a single one. Finally decided to try guest and the app crashes when selecting different features.
Crashes on iOS 12 when going to settings
by DocSharpie on 2018/09/23 06:16
Since upgrading to iOS 12, Glympse always crashes when going to the Settings screen. Aggravating!
Glympse doesn’t work after update
by Jayphonic on 2018/09/22 01:46
Used to love this app. It no longer generates glympses after the latest update.
Unusable
by lewatkin on 2018/09/21 21:55
Since iOS 12 update, app keeps closing when you click on settings or try to change your name. Needs updating. Prior to iOS 12 app worked great.
Buggy. Not reliable.
by dallasinpcola on 2018/09/21 21:06
When I first got this it worked very well. However when I go to send someone my location it just sits there in the wheel spins. I have to often shut it down and restart it three or four times before it takes I love it when it works
What the heck?
by jm456 on 2018/09/21 04:46
This app is not easy to use. It’s not user-friendly. I never know it’s going on. And I can’t seem to figure out what’s going on. Signing on is also a dumb process. I always have to verify my phone.
En español
by RHW84088 on 2018/09/20 16:38
I downloaded glimpse to see if we could find a simpler cross platform family location app. We are a bilingual household English and Spanish, but when I downloaded the app it loaded in Español and when I went to change the idioma by going to setting the app crashed. Seems like it has potential but crash needs to be fixed. Using iPhone7 with iOS 12.
Disappointed
by als12677 on 2018/09/19 10:26
Just downloaded this app last night and every time I try to navigate or do anything in the app, it shuts down. 😐
Stopped working
by Koli mom on 2018/09/15 19:52
Over the last month or so, none of my Glympse attempts have worked properly. Incorrect ETA, or not moving at all. Errors occur on my end as well as the persons I am glympsing with. Is anyone else having issues? I have deleted and reloaded the app. But that did nothing.
Stopped working
by SparkyCa2004 on 2018/09/02 20:57
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.
Generating Glympse Not Working
by kchf06a on 2018/09/02 17:26
I’ve been using this App for several years and love it. In the last couple days the App stopped working. Although I have data the Glympse App gets stuck “Generating Glympse”. I thought this was a one time event but for me on an iPhone X and IPhone 5s the App will not “Generate Glympse” anymore. My guess is there are server side issues. I’ve power cycled the 2 different iPhones and confirmed data availability with SpeedTest and other Apps. High data speeds are available. I’ve force closed the Glympse App as well.
Glimpse
by J dewig(icequeen) on 2018/09/01 13:50
I love glimpse never have any issues,helps a lot when I’m a hurry and you have friends or family wanting to know where you are or if you have left early just send a glimpse and there ya go ..... really love the app no complaints from me😍😍😍😍😍👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Again, too many clicks to open
by aloreep on 2018/08/31 13:51
When I receive a Glympse link, I click, it opens in safari. I click “view map”. I click “view in app”. It says Open App Store, I click “cancel”. I click “view in app” again. It says Open in Glympse, I click “Open”.
Love Glympse
by ~Alu on 2018/08/31 00:04
This app is great! It helps my wife be at ease when I’m traveling. I totally recommend it for anyone that travels a lot or has loved ones that travel a lot.
Challenging
by Petiepilot on 2018/08/29 23:08
We share all the time for balloon chasing and this can be a pain to sync with others
ANCIENT FB connection
by rmckimjr on 2018/08/29 21:28
I hadn’t used this software in a while, had some repair work done on my phone resulting in an OS wipe, loaded app in, tried to connect FB, can’t, keeps trying to use old-style connection mechanism that hasn’t been around for a while now, get same error when attempting to authenticate via FB app or logging n w/ phone or email option, so sad
Very useful app
by JPH724 on 2018/08/27 22:56
My husband and I used this app daily when we were a one-car couple coordinating pick-ups at the train station. Now that we have two cars we still use it whenever we’re meeting someplace, or coordinating a pick-up to go out together or even just to let each other know where we are and when we’ll be home.
Love it!!
by D'Love on 2018/08/25 00:40
Super cool app! No glitches!
Missing 1 feature but AWESOME otherwise
by pop-up killer on 2018/08/19 05:46
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.

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!
Love it

My husband always knows where I am when I travel .. great app !
Works great

We use this app to track hot air balloons during flight. The crews like it, and I like it too
Perfect for Camp!
by sisinthecity on 2018/08/10 11:46
I am a camp counselor and my camp uses Glympse so the parents can track the buses as we pick up the kids. This is app is so easy to use and I would recommend it to anyone! Thanks! :)
Great hot air balloon tracker

Great for tracking hot air balloon
Awesome app
by ElPhiablo on 2017/12/01 17:06
Glympse allows me and my wife to make most of our time. We both have to commute but only have one car. I cannot use public transport to work, so I use the car. I drop off my girl friend at the train stop every morning before I drive to work, however, picking her up in the evening is not that easy since I might be stuck in traffic or her bus/train is caught up by the rush hour. Being on each others' screen through Glympse makes it much easier to still time our pickup well. If she is running late, I go to the store adjacent to the train stop first. If I am running late, she walks towards the way she sees me taking on glympse. Also, for longer driving without the other you can always make sure you know what's going on so that I can have dinner on the table by the time she is home for example. We seriously use Glympse every day. Just great!
Navigation buttons and editing location names
by dammmitjim on 2018/02/06 00:56
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 on 2018/05/09 02:05
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.

Safe travels
by MDerbes on 2019/03/17 12:27
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.
Not what it was in the beginning....
by Seriously, no name on 2018/12/17 18:27
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.
Simple and perfect
by TimHunter on 2017/11/25 00:33
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.

It good
by ADYGIRAFFE22 on 2018/11/16 20:49
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.
Frustrating
by Nurse stacy on 2018/11/06 20:25
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.
Amazing app
by $eaHawks on 2019/01/11 12:28
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 location sharing app
by Bluto4x on 2018/01/21 12:17
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.
Great app. Makes me feel safe
by CICangel on 2018/11/22 21:20
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.
Try Out Public Tags
by TYM Camp on 2018/08/03 02:10
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 on 2018/06/17 04:14
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 on 2018/06/02 18:57
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 on 2018/09/02 20:57
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.
Generating Glympse Not Working
by kchf06a on 2018/09/02 17:26
I’ve been using this App for several years and love it. In the last couple days the App stopped working. Although I have data the Glympse App gets stuck “Generating Glympse”. I thought this was a one time event but for me on an iPhone X and IPhone 5s the App will not “Generate Glympse” anymore. My guess is there are server side issues. I’ve power cycled the 2 different iPhones and confirmed data availability with SpeedTest and other Apps. High data speeds are available. I’ve force closed the Glympse App as well.
Obsessed!
by Ali.Marie.In.Wonderland on 2017/10/16 03:32
I am obsessed with this app. It holds me accountable. I will say “yes. I’m on my way. Walking out the door....” 30 minutes later—> I ACTUALLY walk out the door. But with Glympse, I share my location and destination with someone and tell them I am on my way and I actually go because they can see if I haven’t. It also helps that it’s MY idea. No one forcing me into accountability. It’s good stuff
Useful
by acb420 on 2017/10/27 00:51
I use this app to augment the Find Friends native app for friends without iPhones or for those who I’m not sharing locations with on the regular. A very strange side use of the app was to determine my speed when the speedometer in my car stopped working (and the only caveat to that is that I wish I could increase the font size of the speed reading)
One of the most useful apps around
by MC_MisterE on 2018/03/31 19:18
Better than find my friends by a mile, this is a must have app. Send friends and family a Glympse and let them track your progress on the way to their house, or find your buddies without trying to text constantly back and forth. Good bye “Where are you?”
So helpful!
by Allison713 on 2018/06/17 22:55
I’ve used this app for both personal and business use. It shows your location at every moment which is perfect for meeting up with your friends. It also works out great when I’m making a delivery to a customer because they know right when I’ll be there.
Very useful app
by JPH724 on 2018/08/27 22:56
My husband and I used this app daily when we were a one-car couple coordinating pick-ups at the train station. Now that we have two cars we still use it whenever we’re meeting someplace, or coordinating a pick-up to go out together or even just to let each other know where we are and when we’ll be home.
Our moving company uses it every day! Our customers love it too!
by Jet314314 on 2018/06/03 16:12
We have been in business for 15 years and another delivery service sent us a Glympse. I clicked on it and was amazed. We have added this to our company and love it! It makes my company look more high tech than ever. Thank you! Steve Niedziela, Owner of Dirt Cheap Mover. Corona, California
What happened
by VRod130 on 2019/03/23 15:44
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.
This app freezes up too often.
by resa.rae on 2019/03/01 23:37
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!!
Use to be a fan !!!
by Kypaid on 2018/10/19 05:43
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
If you want to keep track this is the only app
by Bll3 on 2017/09/25 21:00
By far the best app in the App Store for keeping track and finding someone in a crowd. Or just letting someone know when you will be home. Works wonderful When one person is out on a bicycle so the other can keep track.
Get out the door faster
by Theshacks on 2019/03/16 14:53
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.
Worked yesterday but not today.
by kaycee59 on 2018/07/16 12:42
Yesterday my daddy took off on a 9 hour trip. He had car trouble soon after he left and we were able to locate him and help him. But today when he took off, the app continues to say it can’t connect to network. I was really relying on this app to help me with my fathers travels today. — not happy about this. The network is working fine on my end. I have WiFi and cell service. It must be a problem on their end.
Best Option so Someone Knows You're Really Coming
by Troyjoy on 2018/02/17 16:21
I use Glympse *all the time* when headed somewhere to meet someone. It's always reassuring for them to know I'm on my way, even when I'll be on time—but especially on the occasions I might be a few minutes late. Over and over recipients say, "Wow, that's cool! And so helpful."
Nice
by (X 1526,Y 1886) on 2017/10/26 06:32
My girlfriend uses this for me to pick her up from places and it works every time. I love her and this app. She introduced me to it. Just wish it could have no time limit and the user could choose when to disable it or enable it at will. That way it could be used for family for safety.
Wonderful!
by Officelady2 on 2017/09/25 16:01
Glympse is wonderful for keeping family updated on how near or far you are from them. We always use it when heading to our out of state daughter's house. If we get lost, we send a Glympse to her and she tells us street by street how to get where we need to be! Would hate to be without it.
In a year
by Shae4170 on 2017/11/04 22:33
I've been using Glympse for a year. My fiance and I use the app to track one another bc were constantly on the go. It cuts down on the texting and phone calls. It's always accurate and we've never had any issues with app.
Simple location sharing
by ScannerJammer on 2017/12/21 03:56
I can imagine some people saying "what's the difference between this and Apple location sharing"? Let's just say it's a nice alternative to using that...give yourself a few more options, etc.
Great App!!!
by sammilsc84 on 2017/12/14 23:57
It's great for my family to keep tabs on me if I'm out somewhere new and want them to check in on my location. It's great for traveling with or to others so they can know how early or late I'll be. I can tell it how long I want them to see my location.
Pat your own back
by 2thDocUSA on 2019/03/28 05:43
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.
Again, too many clicks to open
by aloreep on 2018/08/31 13:51
When I receive a Glympse link, I click, it opens in safari. I click “view map”. I click “view in app”. It says Open App Store, I click “cancel”. I click “view in app” again. It says Open in Glympse, I click “Open”.
location love!
by TracyEleven on 2017/11/09 21:01
It’s great to let your people know where u are. We use it during hot air balloon chasing, when one goes out of town to know travel is going safely and most important for me..... when going for a run! We can never be to cautious and safe y’all!
May save your life!
by JimboJames100 on 2017/09/24 18:21
I love Glympse. It allows you to keep track of loved ones when they're traveling. And it works very well. I’ve been using this program for a few years and with each update it gets better.
My favorite for real-time sharing
by HRLdude on 2019/04/18 23:07
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.
Good lord this is a frustrating app.
by RawLiquid on 2018/11/22 06:12
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....
Glimpse
by J dewig(icequeen) on 2018/09/01 13:50
I love glimpse never have any issues,helps a lot when I’m a hurry and you have friends or family wanting to know where you are or if you have left early just send a glimpse and there ya go ..... really love the app no complaints from me😍😍😍😍😍👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Great app, Big problem!
by Samivaliloo on 2018/08/06 07:55
This is merely a great app when it comes to location sharing. But there is a BIG downside... guess what! It cannot share the link on iPad just because it says “iPad cannot send text message!” Are you kidding me! Just fix it and get the next star... doing that is just like a piece of cake.
👌
by my nickname 707 on 2018/12/28 23:35
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.
Simple and useful App
by cleverwerx on 2019/03/20 02:57
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!
Family At Ease
by Mountainbiker25 on 2018/05/05 16:31
No more having to remember to let family know when you get someplace. Also in Michigan winters it is nice knowing if we go off the road that there is a map showing exactly where we are located.
I love Glympse!
by G*dsmackme6 on 2017/12/28 22:20
Everyone that I have sent a Glympse too has told me how awesome it is and I have shared the link over and over. I use it everyday, it has helped me with the business I am in as it let’s my customers know that I am in fact on my way!!
Use Glimpse Daily
by Nancy KF on 2018/04/13 00:48
My husband sends me a Glimpse when he leaves work. This helps we have dinner hot when he gets home. The text is helpful. Also like when can let people know how far we are when meeting anywhere.

Wonderful!
by Texasgirl0118 on 2019/05/19 15:27
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
by Jwalthour on 2019/05/18 11:55
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

Here I am
by Mypeeburns on 2019/05/13 10:46
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!
by codeTOV on 2019/05/08 07:57
Simply the best app. Simple, great web map with a shareable link. Tried other gps apps and this one is the best!!
Safety
by A tracker on 2019/05/06 13:39
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

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.
by BallardSteve1016 on 2019/04/25 02:14
This is a straightforward app that works. Worth the price!

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
by HRLdude on 2019/04/18 23:07
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
by Seb0916cxx on 2019/04/14 22:56
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 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕

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!
by Bryan Rahoe on 2019/04/05 23:41
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
by 2thDocUSA on 2019/03/28 05:43
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
by VRod130 on 2019/03/23 15:44
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
by cleverwerx on 2019/03/20 02:57
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!
No

Not cool
Safe travels
by MDerbes on 2019/03/17 12:27
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
by Theshacks on 2019/03/16 14:53
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!
by Sadielucci on 2019/03/09 18:42
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
by JimmyVP on 2019/03/05 13:34
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.
by resa.rae on 2019/03/01 23:37
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
by ECV 3 Cali on 2019/03/01 20:06
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
by nejejrjrjfjfjfjrjrjrkej on 2019/02/28 01:14
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
by CookieMonsterYikes! on 2019/02/20 01:24
“Glympse shares your location information with third parties ...” Delete immediately.
iMessage support
by ilikepengwins on 2019/02/18 16:54
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
by 5kut on 2019/02/10 03:46
Logistical messaging helps with coordination and planning
It's got issues
by WantStuff2Work on 2019/02/09 17:15
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
by martmusico on 2019/02/07 20:26
Stellar app for letting family, friends, business associates, et al know where you are and when you’ll be there.
Very useful
by TSublett on 2019/01/30 02:58
It works well and my friends know when to come outside
Great app but...
by Phillip Colligan on 2019/01/23 01:10
...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
by Guruspeaker on 2019/01/20 01:08
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
by $eaHawks on 2019/01/11 12:28
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
by Driver4work on 2019/01/09 03:10
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.

by my nickname 707 on 2018/12/28 23:35
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
by GenericAppStoreNickname on 2018/12/28 21:50
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
by Dr. Punkin on 2018/12/27 18:02
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....
by Seriously, no name on 2018/12/17 18:27
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...
by DarlaBuck on 2018/12/16 17:32
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.
Great!
by Hepto on 2018/12/01 23:05

One of my most useful apps

My whole family loves this. Use it daily to coordinate travel.
Works. Sometimes
by bmnave on 2018/11/24 22:53
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
by Mommy of Furbabies on 2018/11/24 17:58
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
by CICangel on 2018/11/22 21:20
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.
by RawLiquid on 2018/11/22 06:12
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.
by BenC52 on 2018/11/18 20:12
App. Help families keep in touch during trips.
Ridiculous

It good
by ADYGIRAFFE22 on 2018/11/16 20:49
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

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
by PC observation on 2018/11/07 01:14
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.
Frustrating
by Nurse stacy on 2018/11/06 20:25
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
by Higzreviews on 2018/11/05 23:36
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
by Puppucino on 2018/10/30 22:03
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.

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!

This app is pretty great from a safer perspective. Love it!
Use to be a fan !!!
by Kypaid on 2018/10/19 05:43
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

Wonderful Application

Locked up
by RJ55 on 2018/10/06 17:48
App completely locked at the TOS screen and pressing the agree button wouldn’t register. The button greyed like it knew I pressed it but the TOS screen stayed up. I had to delete and reinstall the app.
Love this app

Hangs when sending
by BillBlasko on 2018/10/01 20:58
I would have given this 5 stars up until a few months ago when it started hanging when sending an iMessage. It never actually sends. If I use the share sheet it works, but that’s not convenient.
Crashes
by Manderkel on 2018/10/01 12:44
App would not send SMS verification code so I proceeded as guest. When I try typing a name for myself the app instantly closes. Unusable
Doesnt work
by Steph cobb on 2018/09/30 20:22
App shut my entire phone down and when I started it back up and wanted me to login again said it was sent to my phone and never did and now it doesn’t work anymore.
Crashing
by Ronin K-9 on 2018/09/30 00:13
Trying to use the app for the first time. Have requested three validation codes and not received a single one. Finally decided to try guest and the app crashes when selecting different features.
Crashes on iOS 12 when going to settings
by DocSharpie on 2018/09/23 06:16
Since upgrading to iOS 12, Glympse always crashes when going to the Settings screen. Aggravating!
Glympse doesn’t work after update
by Jayphonic on 2018/09/22 01:46
Used to love this app. It no longer generates glympses after the latest update.
Unusable
by lewatkin on 2018/09/21 21:55
Since iOS 12 update, app keeps closing when you click on settings or try to change your name. Needs updating. Prior to iOS 12 app worked great.
Buggy. Not reliable.
by dallasinpcola on 2018/09/21 21:06
When I first got this it worked very well. However when I go to send someone my location it just sits there in the wheel spins. I have to often shut it down and restart it three or four times before it takes I love it when it works
What the heck?
by jm456 on 2018/09/21 04:46
This app is not easy to use. It’s not user-friendly. I never know it’s going on. And I can’t seem to figure out what’s going on. Signing on is also a dumb process. I always have to verify my phone.
En español
by RHW84088 on 2018/09/20 16:38
I downloaded glimpse to see if we could find a simpler cross platform family location app. We are a bilingual household English and Spanish, but when I downloaded the app it loaded in Español and when I went to change the idioma by going to setting the app crashed. Seems like it has potential but crash needs to be fixed. Using iPhone7 with iOS 12.
Disappointed
by als12677 on 2018/09/19 10:26
Just downloaded this app last night and every time I try to navigate or do anything in the app, it shuts down. 😐
Stopped working
by Koli mom on 2018/09/15 19:52
Over the last month or so, none of my Glympse attempts have worked properly. Incorrect ETA, or not moving at all. Errors occur on my end as well as the persons I am glympsing with. Is anyone else having issues? I have deleted and reloaded the app. But that did nothing.
Stopped working
by SparkyCa2004 on 2018/09/02 20:57
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.
Generating Glympse Not Working
by kchf06a on 2018/09/02 17:26
I’ve been using this App for several years and love it. In the last couple days the App stopped working. Although I have data the Glympse App gets stuck “Generating Glympse”. I thought this was a one time event but for me on an iPhone X and IPhone 5s the App will not “Generate Glympse” anymore. My guess is there are server side issues. I’ve power cycled the 2 different iPhones and confirmed data availability with SpeedTest and other Apps. High data speeds are available. I’ve force closed the Glympse App as well.
Glimpse
by J dewig(icequeen) on 2018/09/01 13:50
I love glimpse never have any issues,helps a lot when I’m a hurry and you have friends or family wanting to know where you are or if you have left early just send a glimpse and there ya go ..... really love the app no complaints from me😍😍😍😍😍👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Again, too many clicks to open
by aloreep on 2018/08/31 13:51
When I receive a Glympse link, I click, it opens in safari. I click “view map”. I click “view in app”. It says Open App Store, I click “cancel”. I click “view in app” again. It says Open in Glympse, I click “Open”.
Love Glympse

ANCIENT FB connection
by rmckimjr on 2018/08/29 21:28
I hadn’t used this software in a while, had some repair work done on my phone resulting in an OS wipe, loaded app in, tried to connect FB, can’t, keeps trying to use old-style connection mechanism that hasn’t been around for a while now, get same error when attempting to authenticate via FB app or logging n w/ phone or email option, so sad
Very useful app
by JPH724 on 2018/08/27 22:56
My husband and I used this app daily when we were a one-car couple coordinating pick-ups at the train station. Now that we have two cars we still use it whenever we’re meeting someplace, or coordinating a pick-up to go out together or even just to let each other know where we are and when we’ll be home.
Love it!!
by D'Love on 2018/08/25 00:40
Super cool app! No glitches!
Missing 1 feature but AWESOME otherwise
by pop-up killer on 2018/08/19 05:46
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.

by dave234567890 on 2018/08/18 20:24
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!
Love it

We use this app to track hot air balloons during flight. The crews like it, and I like it too
Perfect for Camp!
by sisinthecity on 2018/08/10 11:46
I am a camp counselor and my camp uses Glympse so the parents can track the buses as we pick up the kids. This is app is so easy to use and I would recommend it to anyone! Thanks! :)
Great hot air balloon tracker

Great for tracking hot air balloon
Awesome app
by ElPhiablo on 2017/12/01 17:06
Glympse allows me and my wife to make most of our time. We both have to commute but only have one car. I cannot use public transport to work, so I use the car. I drop off my girl friend at the train stop every morning before I drive to work, however, picking her up in the evening is not that easy since I might be stuck in traffic or her bus/train is caught up by the rush hour. Being on each others' screen through Glympse makes it much easier to still time our pickup well. If she is running late, I go to the store adjacent to the train stop first. If I am running late, she walks towards the way she sees me taking on glympse. Also, for longer driving without the other you can always make sure you know what's going on so that I can have dinner on the table by the time she is home for example. We seriously use Glympse every day. Just great!
Navigation buttons and editing location names
by dammmitjim on 2018/02/06 00:56
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 on 2018/05/09 02:05
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 on 2018/08/19 05:46
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.
Safe travels
by MDerbes on 2019/03/17 12:27
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.
Not what it was in the beginning....
by Seriously, no name on 2018/12/17 18:27
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.
Simple and perfect
by TimHunter on 2017/11/25 00:33
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!
It good
by ADYGIRAFFE22 on 2018/11/16 20:49
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.
Frustrating
by Nurse stacy on 2018/11/06 20:25
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.
Amazing app
by $eaHawks on 2019/01/11 12:28
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 location sharing app
by Bluto4x on 2018/01/21 12:17
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.
Great app. Makes me feel safe
by CICangel on 2018/11/22 21:20
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.

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 on 2018/06/17 04:14
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 on 2018/06/02 18:57
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 on 2018/09/02 20:57
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.
Generating Glympse Not Working
by kchf06a on 2018/09/02 17:26
I’ve been using this App for several years and love it. In the last couple days the App stopped working. Although I have data the Glympse App gets stuck “Generating Glympse”. I thought this was a one time event but for me on an iPhone X and IPhone 5s the App will not “Generate Glympse” anymore. My guess is there are server side issues. I’ve power cycled the 2 different iPhones and confirmed data availability with SpeedTest and other Apps. High data speeds are available. I’ve force closed the Glympse App as well.
Obsessed!
by Ali.Marie.In.Wonderland on 2017/10/16 03:32
I am obsessed with this app. It holds me accountable. I will say “yes. I’m on my way. Walking out the door....” 30 minutes later—> I ACTUALLY walk out the door. But with Glympse, I share my location and destination with someone and tell them I am on my way and I actually go because they can see if I haven’t. It also helps that it’s MY idea. No one forcing me into accountability. It’s good stuff
Useful
by acb420 on 2017/10/27 00:51
I use this app to augment the Find Friends native app for friends without iPhones or for those who I’m not sharing locations with on the regular. A very strange side use of the app was to determine my speed when the speedometer in my car stopped working (and the only caveat to that is that I wish I could increase the font size of the speed reading)
One of the most useful apps around
by MC_MisterE on 2018/03/31 19:18
Better than find my friends by a mile, this is a must have app. Send friends and family a Glympse and let them track your progress on the way to their house, or find your buddies without trying to text constantly back and forth. Good bye “Where are you?”
So helpful!
by Allison713 on 2018/06/17 22:55
I’ve used this app for both personal and business use. It shows your location at every moment which is perfect for meeting up with your friends. It also works out great when I’m making a delivery to a customer because they know right when I’ll be there.
Very useful app
by JPH724 on 2018/08/27 22:56
My husband and I used this app daily when we were a one-car couple coordinating pick-ups at the train station. Now that we have two cars we still use it whenever we’re meeting someplace, or coordinating a pick-up to go out together or even just to let each other know where we are and when we’ll be home.
Our moving company uses it every day! Our customers love it too!
by Jet314314 on 2018/06/03 16:12
We have been in business for 15 years and another delivery service sent us a Glympse. I clicked on it and was amazed. We have added this to our company and love it! It makes my company look more high tech than ever. Thank you! Steve Niedziela, Owner of Dirt Cheap Mover. Corona, California
What happened
by VRod130 on 2019/03/23 15:44
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.
This app freezes up too often.
by resa.rae on 2019/03/01 23:37
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!!
Use to be a fan !!!
by Kypaid on 2018/10/19 05:43
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
If you want to keep track this is the only app
by Bll3 on 2017/09/25 21:00
By far the best app in the App Store for keeping track and finding someone in a crowd. Or just letting someone know when you will be home. Works wonderful When one person is out on a bicycle so the other can keep track.
Get out the door faster
by Theshacks on 2019/03/16 14:53
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.
Worked yesterday but not today.
by kaycee59 on 2018/07/16 12:42
Yesterday my daddy took off on a 9 hour trip. He had car trouble soon after he left and we were able to locate him and help him. But today when he took off, the app continues to say it can’t connect to network. I was really relying on this app to help me with my fathers travels today. — not happy about this. The network is working fine on my end. I have WiFi and cell service. It must be a problem on their end.
Best Option so Someone Knows You're Really Coming
by Troyjoy on 2018/02/17 16:21
I use Glympse *all the time* when headed somewhere to meet someone. It's always reassuring for them to know I'm on my way, even when I'll be on time—but especially on the occasions I might be a few minutes late. Over and over recipients say, "Wow, that's cool! And so helpful."
Nice
by (X 1526,Y 1886) on 2017/10/26 06:32
My girlfriend uses this for me to pick her up from places and it works every time. I love her and this app. She introduced me to it. Just wish it could have no time limit and the user could choose when to disable it or enable it at will. That way it could be used for family for safety.
Wonderful!
by Officelady2 on 2017/09/25 16:01
Glympse is wonderful for keeping family updated on how near or far you are from them. We always use it when heading to our out of state daughter's house. If we get lost, we send a Glympse to her and she tells us street by street how to get where we need to be! Would hate to be without it.
In a year
by Shae4170 on 2017/11/04 22:33
I've been using Glympse for a year. My fiance and I use the app to track one another bc were constantly on the go. It cuts down on the texting and phone calls. It's always accurate and we've never had any issues with app.
Simple location sharing
by ScannerJammer on 2017/12/21 03:56
I can imagine some people saying "what's the difference between this and Apple location sharing"? Let's just say it's a nice alternative to using that...give yourself a few more options, etc.
Great App!!!
by sammilsc84 on 2017/12/14 23:57
It's great for my family to keep tabs on me if I'm out somewhere new and want them to check in on my location. It's great for traveling with or to others so they can know how early or late I'll be. I can tell it how long I want them to see my location.
Pat your own back
by 2thDocUSA on 2019/03/28 05:43
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.
Again, too many clicks to open
by aloreep on 2018/08/31 13:51
When I receive a Glympse link, I click, it opens in safari. I click “view map”. I click “view in app”. It says Open App Store, I click “cancel”. I click “view in app” again. It says Open in Glympse, I click “Open”.
location love!
by TracyEleven on 2017/11/09 21:01
It’s great to let your people know where u are. We use it during hot air balloon chasing, when one goes out of town to know travel is going safely and most important for me..... when going for a run! We can never be to cautious and safe y’all!
May save your life!
by JimboJames100 on 2017/09/24 18:21
I love Glympse. It allows you to keep track of loved ones when they're traveling. And it works very well. I’ve been using this program for a few years and with each update it gets better.
My favorite for real-time sharing
by HRLdude on 2019/04/18 23:07
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.
Good lord this is a frustrating app.
by RawLiquid on 2018/11/22 06:12
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....
Glimpse
by J dewig(icequeen) on 2018/09/01 13:50
I love glimpse never have any issues,helps a lot when I’m a hurry and you have friends or family wanting to know where you are or if you have left early just send a glimpse and there ya go ..... really love the app no complaints from me😍😍😍😍😍👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Great app, Big problem!
by Samivaliloo on 2018/08/06 07:55
This is merely a great app when it comes to location sharing. But there is a BIG downside... guess what! It cannot share the link on iPad just because it says “iPad cannot send text message!” Are you kidding me! Just fix it and get the next star... doing that is just like a piece of cake.
👌
by my nickname 707 on 2018/12/28 23:35
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.
Simple and useful App
by cleverwerx on 2019/03/20 02:57
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!
Family At Ease
by Mountainbiker25 on 2018/05/05 16:31
No more having to remember to let family know when you get someplace. Also in Michigan winters it is nice knowing if we go off the road that there is a map showing exactly where we are located.
I love Glympse!
by G*dsmackme6 on 2017/12/28 22:20
Everyone that I have sent a Glympse too has told me how awesome it is and I have shared the link over and over. I use it everyday, it has helped me with the business I am in as it let’s my customers know that I am in fact on my way!!
Use Glimpse Daily
by Nancy KF on 2018/04/13 00:48
My husband sends me a Glimpse when he leaves work. This helps we have dinner hot when he gets home. The text is helpful. Also like when can let people know how far we are when meeting anywhere.
