GLYMPSE hits 2 million Android downloads and plans to bring new features in update

Surpassing 2 million downloads on the Android platform, Glympse has made a lot of progress in a short amount of time. Having just over a million Android downloads 3 months ago, they’ve reached another milestone and plan to debut a couple new features at the Mobile World Congress, which is coming up real soon.

“We first launched Glympse on the Android platform, so we’re incredibly
excited to be working with the Android team to launch our newest features
and to also announce such a substantial and exciting milestone for the
platform,” said Bryan Trussel, co-founder and CEO of Glympse,Inc.

Tap-n-Track, a new feature that will be available on the Glympse version of Android v4.0 will provide a fast, new way to exchange a “glympse” with another Android user. Using Android Beam, this new feature will establish an instant connection between users who wish to share their locations.

Also announced for MWC is a highly-requested feature that integrates
Glympse with a user’s calendar. Now users can send a Glympse automatically
based on their calendar appointments. Glympse automatically imports recipients,
time frame, and destination, making it easy for people to know which meeting
attendees are on the way and their ETA for appointments.

Live Demos of the “Tap-n-Track” and the Calendar Integration features will be
run in the Android Booth (Hall 8, AC25) at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona
from Monday, Feb 27th to Thursday, March 1st.

While the latest version isn’t available yet, you can still find it on the Android Market using the link below. For the Android v4.0 users, keep an eye out for the updated application which should be coming within the next week as MWC 2012 kicks off.

    After reading this and the market link, I still don’t understand what it does. Why not just use the Foursquare or Facebook check ins?
