SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/15/14 -- Glympse, the pioneer of temporary location sharing technology, has just announced the availability of their award-winning application on Pebble smartwatch for both iOS and Android. With this latest integration, Pebble wearers can share their real-time location and ETA with anyone directly from their watch.
With the Pebble smartwatch, iOS and Android users who have the Glympse companion app on their phone can easily access and share their location with friends with a few quick taps. They can view their active Glympse messages and quickly expire or add additional time in 15-minute increments. Pebble wearers with the iOS app can share location with their selected shortcuts or recent Glympse messages. Android users can send a Glympse to shortcuts, recent Glympse messages, and contacts within their call log or favorite contacts. Recipients receive a live map of the sender's whereabouts as they move from location to location.
"We've been focused on making it easy for anyone to share their location at anytime. By partnering with Pebble, we are enabling their hundreds of thousands of users the ability to share their location, in real-time, wherever they are," said Rob Foley, director, partner development at Glympse. "Glympse provides the flexibility to share location in the moment, and answers the question of 'where are you?' in a simple, elegant and dynamic way."
As with all Glympse integrations, the sender's location is only available for a set period of time, for up to four hours. Once the Glympse has expired, access to their current location is no longer available. Recipients do not need to have the app or device to view the message, and they can access the live map through any web or mobile browser.
In the past year, Glympse has partnered with dozens of top tier global brands and companies, including BMW, Ford, GM, Gogo, Garmin, Mercedes, Google, Samsung and Verizon to bundle its location sharing technology into apps and devices serving millions of users globally, and the company has become the partner of choice in the location sharing space.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...
