Google to Close Alfred Location Recommendations App on July 19

Just a few days are left before Google’s Alfred app gets tossed on the scrap heap. As Google Maps got a makeover likewise this app got the thumbs down signal from the high tech experts. According to Tech Crunch , July 19th is the date set for the final countdown of Alferd app . Exactly one and a half year ago Google bought this app as part of its Clever Sense deal. Now it is useless and to be exterminated. Alfred was an attempt at providing important information regarding eateries, bars, clubs or cafes. It was all based on previous information about where the users had been visiting as well as places they had frequented. Most of the suggestions were streamlined after feedback. The hopes of the apps designers and engineers were high regarding its future. But soon they were dashed to the ground. The app never took off and remained a US-only affair.

Many times it happens that what was planned doesn’t go according to schedule. Google faced the same situation with its Reader which was replaced by something better. In times of tough competition you either are a steamroller or part of the road that gets run over. This seems to be what happened with the Alfred app too. It went off with a bang but flopped with a whimper. Meanwhile, the team that built the app has moved on to fresher pastures. All we can say is better luck next time.
