Ever wonder where a friend or a loved one is? The Glympse Request feature lets you reach out to anyone with a request that they share a Glympse of their location with you.
From the Map screen in the Glympse app, simple tap on Glympse button and then choose the Request button and enter the mobile number of the person you wish to send the request to. Just like a regular Glympse, the Glympse Request comes through as a simple link so anyone with a smart phone can respond.
When the recipient clicks on the link, they are taken to a web page where they can accept or decline the request. Once the request is accepted, the Glympse app opens on their smart phone allowing them to share their location with you with a single tap.
Okay, so you might be wondering what happens if the recipient doesn't already have Glympse on their phone. Well, we've got that scenario covered too. When the recipient taps your link agreeing to share their location, if they don't already have Glympse on their phone the link will take them to the appropriate app store to download Glympse. When they open the Glympse app for the first time, the app will recognize that they were trying to send a Glympse and will automatically prepare the Glympse for them so all they have to do is tap Send.
