Glympse has been a favorite app for me since it came out a couple of years ago. Whenever I'm meeting someone, Glympse sends out my exact location and time of arrival to as many people as I want. Friends or associates can see my progress in the Glympse app if they have it, or on any browser running on a laptop, desktop or mobile device.
Today the company is delivering a major update to the free app that adds more services, while simplifying screens to make it easier than ever to let people know where you are.
Glympse CEO and co-founder Bryan Trussel told me, "We've reached a pivotal point in the evolution of location sharing -- moving beyond check-ins and static one-time, closed-network sharing events to location as a mainstream way of communicating where someone is at any given time. People are actively seeking ways to share where they are more regularly and with broader groups of people -- but with control."
