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 😉 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
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 😉
well!! this is essentially for those who are driving car, bike, etc and can have a car charger !!
Nice app! Thanks, keep them coming 🙂
Hope somebody thinks of an “Answering Machine” app for mobile phones.
So that it starts automatically responding when I don’t pick up.
Hunt one, Anindya!
