Glympse trails will now be available from your Evernote account

Glympse, the pioneers of user-to-user real time location sharing, has announced that they're teaming up with Evernote to allow users to archive a list of their Glympse trails. Using the built in sharing features in Android, Glympse location data can now be automatically shared to a special "My Glympse Trails" folder in their Evernote portfolio.

Many of our users have requested a way to save a snapshot of their Glympse map trails so they can view road trips, keep runs and bike rides, archive a special trip abroad, or just remember an interesting location. We wanted to make this feature simple and easy. Evernote is the perfect solution: users retain complete control over how they share their location and can choose to save their trips to their personal Evernote account for review at a later date.

Each saved Glympse entry will contain details about the recipients, date, time, and duration of the Glympse as well as the destination if included. Of course, all this is stored in the user's Evernote account for easy access from just about anywhere.

The changes are available in today's update, which you can download from the Google Play link above. Jump past the break for the full press release.

Glympse Real-Time Location Trails Now Saved Within Evernote

New Integration Allows Glympse Users to Archive Location Details in Evernote

SEATTLE – July 3, 2013 – It was only a matter of time before Glympse, Inc., the world’s leading real-time location sharing service, began working with Evernote, the company that is helping the world remember everything, to allow users to easily save their Glympse “trails” in one place. Now included within Evernote Trunk in the Lifestyle and Travel Category, Glympse users can easily choose Evernote directly from the mobile app and automatically archive their location broadcast.

“Many of our users have requested a way to save a snapshot of their Glympse map trails so they can view road trips, keep runs and bike rides, archive a special trip abroad, or just remember an interesting location. We wanted to make this feature simple and easy,“ said Bryan Trussel, co-founder and CEO of Glympse. “Evernote is the perfect solution: users retain complete control over how they share their location and can choose to save their trips to their personal Evernote account for review at a later date.”

Sharing to Evernote from Glympse is easy: like sharing to Facebook or Twitter, a user simply signs in to their Evernote account in the Glympse mobile app. They can then send a Glympse to their Evernote account to automatically save their trail for future reference. The completed trail is automatically stored in a folder in Evernote named “My Glympse Trails.” From this folder, users are able to see snapshots of their saved trails along with the details (including recipients, date, time, and duration of the Glympse as well as the destination if included) of each Glympse saved.

"Evernote helps people remember their lives, and a big part of living is traveling from place to place. With Glympse, those trips can be recorded alongside an Evernote's users other memories. It's a natural fit,” said Rafe Needleman, director of developer relations.
