Google Glass Users Can Now Get Three New Travel Apps
Glass customers have been telling Google that they like using their devices when traveling, so Google has added three new Glassware travel apps.Google Glass Explorers now have three more travel apps to use with their Glass devices while they explore and expand their horizons around the world. The new Glassware apps, announced May 15 in a post by the Glass team on the product's Google+ page, are available through the special MyGlass portal, which can be accessed by Explorer users. The new travel software for Glass comes from TripIt, Foursquare and OpenTable. "Some of the most exciting experiences that our Explorers have shared with us are from their travels with Glass," the post states. "Glass has become a favorite travel companion because it helps you enjoy your vacation without getting lost in your technology, and now we have new Glassware that will continue to help you discover and explore with ease." The TripIt app allows Glass users to get a heads-up display of their travel plans using Glass, instead of having to pull their smartphone out and manually check for their travel details, according to a related post from TripIt. "Just imagine a gate-change notification or flight status update while you're sprinting through the airport, luggage in tow and coffee in hand. Way better than rushing to the wrong gate, right?"
The Foursquare app will help Glass users find places to go with their friends and then lets them check in to their destinations so others can gather as well, while the OpenTable app will allow Glass users to make reservations in more than 31,000 restaurants so far, without having to make a phone call.
