Glympse Unveils Newly Designed Track & Treat App to Take the Scare Out of Halloween for Parents

Available on Both iOS and Android, the Leader in Temporary Location Sharing Provides Free, Real-Time Tracking of Ghosts and Goblins

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Oct 20, 2015) - Glympse, the pioneer of temporary location sharing technology, today released a new version of the company's popular Halloween app, Track & Treat. With Track & Treat, parents have an easy, simple way to keep an eye on their kids as they haunt the neighborhood, allowing them to track their child's movements in real time this Halloween.

"We know safety is a primary concern for parents this time of year, whether struggling with the decision of allowing kids to trick-or-treat solo, or simply wanting to keep tabs on the evening with friends," said Monica Depiesse, creative director, Glympse. "By applying our industry leading technology to this fun, user-friendly app, we're providing parents the peace of mind to enjoy the holiday, while allowing them the opportunity to give their kids a sense of independence."

The free app allows a parent to quickly and easily share a location. With Track & Treat in hand, families can now enjoy the night while utilizing the technology to:

  • View that goblin's every movement. The real-time app let's users see where their children are, how fast they're moving and if they are starting to wander too far. Parents can track from any mobile device or desktop, so no additional devices are needed.
  • No ghoul left behind! Working with a spouse or another adult, Track & Treat can be used to keep tabs on others in the neighborhood. The easy-to-use map features let the user see the location of their partner in crime.
  • Warn others of the spooky creatures headed their way. Track & Treat offers those, such as neighbors or grandparents, a way to see when the haunting is on its way to their doorstep. Privacy is important, so the sender can determine how long to share their location with a built-in expiration after 4 hours in case you forget.

The Track & Treat app was built by the same great mind's behind the leading app for temporary location sharing, Glympse. The technology is also available through Glympse partners that include Blackberry, BMW/MINI, Ford, Garmin, GM, Land Rover, Mercedes, Samsung and Verizon.

To download Track & Treat, visit the App Store or Google Play.
