  • Google has come up with a new exploration app called Field Trip. It works by running in the background on Android handsets and it’s basically a tour guide, available right now on the Play Store. It offers detailed information on a specific area without you specifically requiring it, so it intuitively knows when you need it.

    Resources for the application are taken from Arcadia (local places), Thrilist, Food Network, Zagat and Easter for food/drinks, Sunset, Cool Hunting and WeHeart for shopping and Atlas Obscura/Daily Secret for random gems. The app is free and measures less than 3 MB in storage. Field Trip helps you learn stuff about the place you’re visiting, from local history to the best place to eat at. It doesn’t even require you to click and if you have a headset connected it can even read the info to you.

    You can choose from 3 different modes to set the frequency of Field Trip notifications and you can check out Field Trip worthy places in your area on a map. You just need to tap on cards in the map view and find points of interest nearby. There’s also a driving option and you can capture the memory of a place, by sharing what you discovered on Twitter, Facebook or Google+. The app is up for download here.
