missing the boat somehow
We've used this app for a while and have been very pleased with it, but in the latest update they overhauled the entire interface to make it more slick, but managed to break some functionality in the process. Now instead of being able to use home screen icons to send the same glympse I use every day (the new homescreen icons just deliver me to a web page that says I've been redirected and doesn't go anywhere), I have to navigate through 3 or 4 screens of tapping to get the same info sent. Also, with iMessage, Glympse almost always starts a new conversation instead of using the one that is already open. Once they work these issues out, it'll be a home run. until then, it's just another half-baked piece of software that kind of does cool things, sometimes.

I like it a lot
I love Glympse - both my husband and I are on the road a lot - separately, and need to check each other's location a lot. And yet - for the most part we use Find My Friends - even though we both prefer Glympse. There is one big reason why we use FMF mostly, and that's because we never have to initiate anything. We are waiting for the day that at any time we can use Glympse to check each other's location without having to send or request a Glympse. We should be able to allow this type of permission within the app - trusted friends or similar. Hence four stars instead of five. C'mon devs - make it so that we can retire FMF. :)

Where did the app badge go??
Why would you remove the push notification badge that showed you how many viewers you currently had? The new interface is lovely and definitely looks more polished, but I am really missing the way we used to be able to see immediately who was viewing me both with the app badge and on the map screen. Aside from this, I am very appreciative of this FREE app that I literally use daily. Keep up the great work!

Good but some bugs
Initial location is not correct. I have to manually open the maps app and press current location to get it updated in glympse.

Almost perfect. Need to get rid of calendar.
If it wasn't for "calendar integration", this app would have been perfect. Even after disabling the calendar notifications from the menu, it still would give me notifications that I have calendar entries and ask if I wanted to create a Glympse. Why exactly would I need to create a Glympse for Mona's birthday, or a doctors appointment, or meeting my colleague who sits 10 feet away from me?

Had potential, before the last upgrade
Used to work well for the most part, but this last upgrade/version not only is ugly, less user friendly, but it just plainly doesn't work! You'd think the developers would QA it before publishing the release. Not worth get it it until fixed.
