Stagnant app missing basic features for years
I’ve wanted to love Glympse for a very long time, but have never been able to. The basic idea is fantastic, but their implementation leaves a lot to be desired. First, the location accuracy is poor, and the app doesn’t try to do anything to smooth it out (like locking to roads, the way Google Maps does), so it looks like the broadcaster is jumping into buildings and lakes and rooftops as they go. Second, if the broadcaster has double-backed, you just see a jumble of trail and can’t easily tell where they are. (This could easily be fixed if they just faded out the broadcaster’s trail, but they don’t.) Finally, Glympse’s support is pretty lackluster - their “feature request” board is locked, with many popular ideas that have gone unanswered for 3+ years. The app gives you the impression it was once the product of a vibrant startup, but is now collecting cobwebs.

Creepy
I Was texting my husband who was out of town when I got a message that said I want to see your location, thinking it was my husband I clicked on the link ,downloaded the app and sent my location. Later when I spoke with him he said he never sent the link but I sent it to him! Thank god we trust each other, this creepy app could potentially cause marital problems.

4 hour max time limit too low
Traveling across state I would need about an 8 hour time limit. Pretty ridiculous that you're limited to only 4. Oh also this app always stops updating location.

Terrible App
My husband sends an email I tap where I'm supposed to. I see him for about 2 seconds and he never moves. Very frustrating. I'm going to delete it.

Stops Updating Location
The app is great when it works. But, it sometimes stops updating the location and doesn't restart.

Wish time windows could be longer
Love the interface, but wish locations could be set for more than four hours.

Third (or fourth or fifth) time's the charm!!
Usually takes three or more tries to get it to the work. GF sends, I get notice and go to app, and nothing.... I send request and wait. I get response back and go to app and nothing. So I pull down notifications and tap on notice again and this time when it takes me to app I get a "your request was sent" and then finally it says "viewing XXX's glimpse" and I finally am shown her location. I hate that there is no where in the app to go to to "pick up" waiting glimpses. It just doesn't work at all the way it should.

How do you add contacts
Share my location with who? If there is an obvious way to show where I am to my friends I've missed it. Only giving 3 stars not 1 because I'm assuming its me thats dumb.

Receiving glimpse doesn't work!
Every time somebody sends one to me I never get it on the app. It's only email. Then I have to go through the website. Sometimes it doesn't even work. So annoying
