"Glympse 2.0 stops broadcasting locations after ~10 mins"

Maybe Group feature if it works.


Glympse stops broadcasting my (or the other party sharing hers/his) location after about 10 mins or so using the new version of Glympse (2.01.298). The Glympses remain active but the locations (either theirs and/or mine) won't update even though I know all parties have moved. This issue seems to happen after a party stays at one place for some time (~ 10 - 15 mins). Glympse used to work fine before this update in my old iPhone3gs AND new iPhone5 (IOS 6) using AT&T. It was until after I updated Glympse to the newest version, the location services stop updating/broadcasting. Verified the same symptoms with other two Glympse users, one with VZ and the second with AT&T, using iPhone4s (IOS 6) and latest Glympse version (2.01.298). We have no battery saver apps loaded either.

"Best GPS app I know of"

Simple, clean, easy to use, addictive, and private.


Uses GPS, so battery life can be an issue depending on the phone


Alerts everyone you are meeting or want to keep up to date about where you are, what the traffic may be, and when you are likely to arrive. You are in control of all info. Multiple uses.

Send location to anyone.
It's realtime on a map.
Love the timer idea.


Wish it ran in the background on iPhone

"Very useful app"

This is very useful for long trips, letting friends know exactly where you are and when you will arrive. No need for repeated phone calls. The user may control the duration and access of the tracking info.


Definitely uses a lot of battery power and the cellphone gets very hot. After 3 hours, the battery ran down. But if you can use a car charger and not put it in your pocket, it's excellent.


This is extremely useful for many traveling situations; it provides a degree of security for family members and also assists coordinating meeting points. If the battery usage were better, it would earn 5 stars.
