Glympse, the app that lets you share your location with friends in real-time, has been overhauled for Windows Phone 8 bringing new features to the platform.

Among the new options is the ability to share your location with a friend via an international phone number and the ability to keep sharing your location even when the app is running in the background, which had been a significant limitation of the previous version. The company said it had also made it easier to launch a Glympse link in the app too, before, people that received a link could only view someone’s location in the browser.
