TechCrunch reported that Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) announced plans on Thursday to abort Alfred, a destinations-recommendations app, on July 19.

Alfred is a mobile application that allows users to search a database of local restaurants cafes, bars and nightclubs. The app lines up similar recommendations based on the previous choices to create a personalized queue of locations. It was bought by Google in 2011 from its original developers at Clever Sense.

Alfred isn’t the first app to have been shut down by the search engine company in recent days. On Wednesday, Google announced that they would terminate the location-tracker app Google Latitude on August 9.

Both developments follow on the tail of Google’s Wednesday unveiling of a new Google Maps interface for Android phones.
