Anyone purchasing Google Glass (and that could be anyone now) can now look forward to a bunch of new apps to make the most of. Foursquare, TripIt and OpenTable are now being offered on Glass, giving Explorers the ability to check in to areas, make restaurants reservations and get updates on planned trips. This completes what has become a very impressive travel-based set of apps, with Glass already hosting Word Lens, an app that allows wearers to translate foreign signs and menus, and Google's own Field Trip, which guides you in the areas you're exploring.
While the very nature of Google Glass has been questioned, these apps are enough to prove its usefulness in this area: being on-the-go. If you're in a new country where you don't speak the language and need some help going around, those $1,500 burning a hole in your pocket might just be worth the experience Glass can offer.
