"Glympse™ is a groundbreaking new way to share your location with anyone for a specified period of time using patent-pending GlympseWatch™ timer."

Glympse is a new tracking utility for Android that has just landed at the Android market! Glympse allows you to send a live updating link with your current location (as defined by GPS, cell towers and Skyhook) to your contacts, allowing them to watch your position online for a predefined period of time (hence the 'patent-pending GlympseWatch')!

It's probably easiest to explain with a couple of screenshots! On the device...

So how well does it work? Incredibly well! The UI is well thought out and easy to use on the device, and for the trackee (<_<) the live updating map looks great with north orientated or direction orientated options.

Glympse is FREE and you can grab it now from the Android Market!

Sort of, although it's a lot easier to share your location with others without them (or indeed you) having to sign up.

It's a great fancy live updating view too...
