Glympse, 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.
So. Much. Tech.
Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.
