Most users prefer to open a Glympse received via SMS in the Glympse app, but may find the link opening in the browser by default. There is a simple way to do this! This article will show you how to change the default way your iOS device opens a received Glympse. Please follow the steps below or check out the attached video (at the bottom of the article) to change the default behavior.
For iPhone 6S and newer (See below for older versions):
When you receive an invite via text message (SMS), hard press the message and slide up.
If you hard pressed correctly, you should get the screen below. Select open in Glympse, and until/unless you change this again, each time you click on a Glympse link, it will open in the Glympse app.
A normal (or soft) press will give you different options as shown below. If you get this screen, go back and try again - press harder on the link and slide up.
iPhones 6/6+ and older:
The above method works on phones enabled with 3D touch, which means iPhones 6S or newer. For older phones that don't support 3D touch, this method can be used to change the default behavior to open a received Glympse in the App instead of the browser.
Once you have clicked the link and have the Glympse opened in the browser, you should see the below screen. To change how your device opens the Glympse link, tap in the status bar at the top of the screen (on either side of the clock - the areas represented by the red rectangles in the screenshot below), or pull down on the the blue Glympse section right below the address bar.
Upon tapping or pulling, a bar should drop down directly under the address bar that will provide an option to open in the Glympse app along with an open button. Selecting open will open that Glympse, as well as future Glympses, in the app. Please see the attached video to see how this is done.
