Share your location without letting the whole world know where you are
by on May 16, 2011
Not so long ago it used to be your parents – and on occasion the FBI – that wanted to know where you are at any given moment. Nowadays you can leave a digital breadcrumb trail for anybody who looks at your social network. The reasons behind doing this are pretty mixed. Mostly it is just bragging that you get out more than your mates do, other times it is something of a game – checking into somewhere new before any one else has time to make their own mark, Essentially it is marking your territory like a dog, but instead of wee you use twitter and Facebook.
Glympse is different. It is an app that will showcase wherever you are at any given time but instead of broadcasting this to the world, you can let your contacts know by text, email, Twitter or Facebook – all you have to do is load the app up, wait for your destination, then send the message to the contact. This will send off a weblink, which will expire when you want it too – from 15 minutes to four hours. Or you can set it so they can’t track you, but just see that you have checked in to a certain area.
The idea is a decent one, especially if you want to meet up with colleagues and you want to let them know where you are. It’s also great for parents who want to make sure their kids got the place they said they were going to.
