Google Glass Gets Foursquare, TripIt and OpenTable Apps

The much controversial and criticized Google Glass is now made just more useful for those who love to travel since the headset is officially going to have apps from Foursquare, TripIt and OpenTable. An impressive suit of travel apps has been created with the combination of Word Lens and Google’s very own Field Trip. These apps are going to let the travelers explore the area of their immediate presence and also make reservations and get updated news on planned trips and all this awesomeness is possible without smartphone.

In case you are wondering what sort of apps these will be, we have had a look at some of those. The apps from Foursquare are going to offer an extremely stripped-down experience as compared to the apps on the smartphones. You will be able to see your venues from up close and you will also be able to check in and both these require the same command of "Okay Glass, check me into...." and as soon as you are done saying that, the app serves up a "strip" of venues you can browse by swiping; a tap will check you in. However, you are going to find one thing quite disappointing that a picture cannot be added with the check in. But this is most likely going to get fixed with updates.

TripIt on the other hand is doing its thing with the Google Now cards that already appear on Glass and with this you can possibly view everything; from your flight status, departure time to your gate. All this information will be available on a single card which is made accessible through a simple swipe on the Glass touchpad.

Open Table lets you make reservations with a simple command: "Okay Glass, make a reservation...." And after that you will be seeing a number of restaurants and you can scroll through and pick one for your reservation.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
