Google Invites Us On A Field Trip With New App
Field Trip taps into databases maintained by companies such as Thrillist, Zagat, Curbed and Yesterland to help make suggestions that may be of interest to the user. Those suggestions can come as frequently or as seldom as you'd like and appear on the screen in the form of a card that presents relevant information about the location or event.
The potential for this app while wandering around our home cities is great of course, as it is always fun to discover new locations and hidden gems that aren't far from home. But Field Trip sounds like it could be a fantastic option for travelers who enjoy strolling around a new destination while organically discovering unique venues and other points of interest. While the early version of this app is a bit rough around the edges, it does hold a lot of potential for becoming a virtual tour guide in the future.
Field Trip is absolutely free and available now on Google Play store. An iPhone version is in the works and should be available soon.
