Glympse takes to the skies to help you share your location in flight

iphone_activeGlympse, the temporary location-sharing service designed to help you tell family and friends where you are when you’re travelling to meet them, now works on flights in the US, thanks to a partnership with the Gogo inflight WiFi service.

If you can get a usable connection (not necessarily easy – there always seems to be someone trying to upload their vacation videos and hogging the bandwidth), you’ll be able to share your location on a map and your ETA. Sure, the people waiting for you could use one of the numerous flight-tracking apps out there to see where you are, but this offers a personal touch and it’s an interesting expansion for the company that already has partnerships with several car manufacturers, Garmin, Samsung and more.
