“where have you reached dear?” Pissed of such nagging calls ?

Even the most understanding wife atleast calls you twice while you are driving back home to check where you have reached.

And they give a damn to the traffic cops looking at you as if you are a 500 rupees note while you use your phone and drive.

Well, tech can help here and have helped me aswell. So here is what I did.

The expensive part was to gift my wife a smart android phone and make her use it even though it was a bulky 4.1 inch screen one.

And the easy part was installing Glympse on my phone. A brillent app which lets you generate a link which keeps updating your realtime location and speed. The link has a auto expire time after which it stops working. You and send this email as a sms, twitter message, email or even you can read it out ๐Ÿ˜‰ for sharing it. And whoever gets the link can track you throw any browser or throw the same app.

This app is available for both Android and iOS.

WARNING: If you are using this app for more than 15 minutes remember to plug it in to your car charger or get a spare battery ready. It drinks the battery as you drink child beer because it pings the GPS and the net every second.

You can download the app here: http://market.android.com/details?id=com.glympse.android.glympse

Add yours

  1. does it sends automatic updates…??? this app will only be useful if you donot have to stop by and share the location…otherewise sending a quick message or attending a 10 sec cal will be a better option then draining your battery ๐Ÿ˜‰
