Top Android App: Glympse

Top Android App: Glympse
Glympse is an extremely fast and easy way to safely share your location in real-time.  It is a safe alternative to other apps that constantly update your location in the fact that you can choose the time period that a person you choose is updated with your location.  Conveniently, a Glympse can be sent to an email or phone number for quick access.

You can run Glympse for just a moment to update a permanent location or for a few minutes to hours to track a particular path you may have taken to get to a specific location.  This option is great for giving someone directions to a place they are completely unfamiliar with.  Forget written directions or huge roadmaps, instead you have the exact GPS path tracked on your map.
Another huge upside to this app is that you don’t need to register to any site.  You don’t have to constantly update who or which sites are allowed to see your location; it’s set at the time you send each Glympse.
Overall, the focus on user privacy and the simplicity of using this app make it an extremely useful app.
Here is a quick, fun video review that has been posted to YouTube.
