About glmps: the blog

Relive the moment.

A short film captures the story behind your photo. The camera is always rolling, so when you snap a picture you also get a movie. Moments can be saved privately or shared across your favorite social networks. Follow your friends and catch a glimpse of what's happening around the world while creating the movie trailer of your life.


We’re bringing the Back To The Future time machine to SXSW!

Are you heading to Austin for SXSW? Use glmps to capture all the craziness of the event using glmps - we’ll take you back in time to relive those moments later!

We’ve partnered up with Foodspotting’s Street Food Festival on Saturday at the corner of 2nd and Congress from 4p - 10p and are bringing along the most famous time machine of all - the DeLorean from Back To The Future. Come geek out with us and take a glmps with the car of our dreams.

Our favorite new feature:

Here at glmps we’re big fans of Instagram which is why we now share directly to them. You no longer have to choose because you can get both a video and a beautiful photo! All you have to do is tap the share options and you’ll find the Instagram capture icon. It’ll prompt you to open the app and you’ll be taken to the photo filter screen. A shortened link to the original glmps is added to the title so that anyone viewing the photo can also relive the moment through glmps.

¡Bienvenido a glmps v2.1!

Now we’re available natively in 10 languages: Spanish, French, Italian, Korean, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Portuguese and Hebrew. We know there may be words or phrases that aren’t perfectly translated so feel free to send us over any feedback because we’re trusting translators since we can’t even proofread some of those languages.

Other new features:

  • Search. Look up glmpses using keywords or hashtags by tapping on the star icon.
  • Scroll through previous glmpses. There’s now a “Me” option under the star icon that visually showcases your old shots and lets you quickly jump to them.
  • Users no longer have to log-in to experience glmps. The popular feed as well as nearby glmpses are now available for everyone. Creating an account is only required to upload a glmps or interact within the community.
  • Faster upload. Uploads begin immediately after shooting a glmps and continue in the background while a title and share options are selected.
  • Broader sharing capabilities. Can use your favorite photo apps Instagram and Camera+ to filter photos.

We’re really excited to get to meet glmps users in person at SXSW so don’t be shy - come say hello at the Foodspotting Street Food Festival!

As always, we’re always looking for feedback and look forward to seeing a ton of glmpses from Austin.
