Interesting Use of GPS Sharing

Glympse is a particularly interesting app, of the hundreds of thousands of apps out there on smartphone app stores.

It enables you to share your location with a specific person for a specific period of time via emailing them a web link. Unlike other location sharing apps, this level of targeting makes it much more useful to scenarios such as meeting up or letting someone know when you’ll arrive.

It’s an interesting innovation, because Glympse aren’t offering anything radically new, just taking the technology that’s already out there and simplifying it so it becomes more useful.
