Google Launches Field Trip App on iOS
Back in September of 2012, Google released an app called Field Trip for Android. The app, a creation of Google’s Niantic Labs, was billed as “your guide to the cool, hidden, and unique things in the world around you.”
Today, Google has finally launched an iOS version.
Field Trip runs in the background of your phone, and it only makes itself known when you are near something interesting. Field Trip uses your location to trigger popup info cards on various places including landmarks, historical places, food, art, and more.
“The hyperlocal history experts of Arcadia and Historvius will unveil local lore in places you never expected. Trend-setting publications like Thrillist, Food Network, Zagat, and Run Riot will point out the best places to eat and drink. Experts at Sunset, Cool Hunting, WeHeart, Inhabitat, and Remodelista will guide you to the latest unique stores and products. Atlas Obscura and Daily Secret help you uncover hidden gems no matter where you are. Songkick and Flavorpill guide you to local music,” says Google.
Here’s the full feature list:
