Website of the Week: Glympse.com

Glympse

This is my new favorite app. Last week my cousin offered to give me a ride to the airport and when I texted him to see how far away he was from my house, he sent me a link. Since it was so slow to open up on my Blackberry, I forwarded it to my laptop and there it was…a Google Map with his exact location and the speed at which he was traveling. I thought, “what a perfect app for travelers to know where their ride is!” Glympse’s tag line says it all—“Share your where”—and you can apply all kinds of privacy settings so only the person(s) you want to know where you are can see your location. And the best part? It’s free. Don’t you wish all car/busses/trains/planes supplied this? No more “I’ll be there in five minutes” lies.
