I am looking for an Android application that allows me send my ETA (estimated time of arrival) when walking to another user. If possible, with as many features as in Waze, which does the same for driving ETA, viz:

  • gratis
  • manage a list of friends
  • I can see whether the other user received my ETA
  • the ETA is continuously updated
  • the other user can use Android or iOS
  • the other user can see my current location
  • I can favorite destinations

I think you might be looking for Glympse, which allows you to share your location, destination and ETA with individuals or groups that you have set up for a specified period of time.

  • gratis Yes
  • manage a list of friends uses your contact list or you can set up groups
  • I can see whether the other user viewed my ETA Yes
  • the ETA is continuously updated Yes
  • the other user can use Android or iOS Android, IOS & WinPhone apps for sending - recipient can be using any of those with or without the software installed or can be using a desktop PC and a web interface.
  • the other user can see my current location Yes via the web interface
  • I can favorite destinations I believe so
  • You can also request a glympse from others.

Glympse can be found at the Google Play Store and on iTunes.

Pathshare

It allows you to share your current location with a group of friends.

Pathshare is a beautiful app that helps you share your path in realtime. It was designed to be simple to use and make realtime location sharing a safe experience. With Pathshare, you can easily setup a session with your friends and share your location for a defined period of time. You and only you are in control of for how long you want to be seen by other participants! And there is more: Pathshare will automatically stop sharing your location when the defined time expires. That’s safe and easy!

Features

  • Free as in free cookies
  • Available for Android & iOS
  • Share with a select group of friends with notifications when friends join/leave a sharing session
  • Users don't need the app installed, can view your location from any mobile/desktop web browser

  • Thanks, fewer features than Glympse, but maybe more convenient if that's enough for the user. Jul 18, 2015 at 7:33
