Glympse is a mobile service that allows GPS-enabled mobile phone users to share their location via a Web-based map for a pre-set period of time with anyone they choose. With Glympse, you are in complete control – you choose WHO you want to see your location, WHEN and for HOW LONG. Unlike other location-based services that require users to log in and build a friend network before use, Glympse can be used within seconds of downloading to a GPS-enabled smartphone device. There's no need to create an account to use the service, eliminating login and password hassles. Once downloaded, you can "glympse" anyone you choose by simply selecting a contact or contacts, choose the duration you want your location to be available to the recipient, and then hit send. Only Glympse uses patent-pending, time-based GlympseWatch℠ technology that allows users to set a timer for how long their location may be shared, from minutes or up to four hours.
