It’s the end of the road for Google’s excellent Trips mobile app

Another day, another Google product being shuttered. This time, it’s Trips, the travel app that automatically created plans for your holidays in a simple, beautiful interface.

Earlier this week, Android Police spotted code in the Android app that hinted at its impending doom; subsequently, ZDNet reported that the company noted in a support page that Trips will no longer work after August 5.

That’s a bummer, not only because of how useful Trips had already become, but also because of its immense potential. I spent the past month away from home, in Europe, and I extensively relied on it to follow my itinerary and what I could do at each of my destinations.
