Frank McPherson had very positive comments about Glympse running on Android and Windows Phone devices earlier this month.
His opinion appears to be shared by a number of people including investors who put in $7.5 million in a Series B round to Glympse. Glympse CEO Bryan Trussel said: Our plans for new products and features will strengthen our mission to provide a simple and sleek way for our growing user base to share location
Glympse provides a simple and useful way to share your location for a limited time. You can send a message from Glympse to someone else using email or text messaging. This results in a short text message (e.g., I will be here for another 30 minutes) and a link to a web map (Google Maps) with your location. Neither the sender nor the recepient needs a Glympse account. Like Frank, I’ve found a lot to like in Glympse’s simplicity and usefulness.
