How much mobile phone battery does Glympse consume?

The Glympse app has been developed to maximize efficiency and minimize the amount of battery consumption. In fact, we hold patents around this technology.

Given that what Glympse does is provide real-time location sharing, the app utilizes the device’s internal GPS, which uses a modest amount of battery. You can select “Low Power Mode”, a setting that is in the “Settings” of the Glympse app.

Note: Glympse utilizes a greater percentage of battery usage during an active Glympse and when the app is in the foreground. When the app is in the background, the app uses very little battery. When the app is actively sharing your location, it requires more battery usage due to the use of GPS on your device.
