SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Google confirmed Monday it has bought the startup behind a Jetpac mobile application that creates insightful travel guides by analysing pictures from social networks such as Instagram.

Jetpac said that its application would be removed from Apple's online App Store in the days ahead and that it would stop supporting the software in the middle of September.

"We look forward to working on exciting projects with our colleagues at Google," Jetpac said in an online post.
