Sharing your location through Glympse has been a time-sensitive affair, with friends and family receiving links to maps that would plot your position for a few hours at most. Now, however, Glympse has partnered with Evernote to save records of your travels. Simply share your current location broadcast to Evernote and the complete trek will be saved to a "My Glympse Trails" folder. Android users are getting the first crack at the new feature starting today, but folks running the iOS app are set to receive the integration shortly. Check your handset for the update or click the bordering source link to grab ahold of the app.
Glympse Real-Time Location Trails Now Saved Within Evernote
New Integration Allows Glympse Users to Archive Location Details in Evernote
SEATTLE – July 3, 2013 – It was only a matter of time before Glympse, Inc., the world's leading real-time location sharing service, began working with Evernote, the company that is helping the world remember everything, to allow users to easily save their Glympse "trails" in one place. Now included within Evernote Trunk in the Lifestyle and Travel Category, Glympse users can easily choose Evernote directly from the mobile app and automatically archive their location broadcast.
"Many of our users have requested a way to save a snapshot of their Glympse map trails so they can view road trips, keep runs and bike rides, archive a special trip abroad, or just remember an interesting location. We wanted to make this feature simple and easy," said Bryan Trussel, co-founder and CEO of Glympse. "Evernote is the perfect solution: users retain complete control over how they share their location and can choose to save their trips to their personal Evernote account for review at a later date."
Sharing to Evernote from Glympse is easy: like sharing to Facebook or Twitter, a user simply signs in to their Evernote account in the Glympse mobile app. They can then send a Glympse to their Evernote account to automatically save their trail for future reference. The completed trail is automatically stored in a folder in Evernote named "My Glympse Trails." From this folder, users are able to see snapshots of their saved trails along with the details (including recipients, date, time, and duration of the Glympse as well as the destination if included) of each Glympse saved.
"Evernote helps people remember their lives, and a big part of living is traveling from place to place. With Glympse, those trips can be recorded alongside an Everote's users other memories. It's a natural fit," said Rafe Needleman, director of developer relations.
