Field Trip discovers everything locally on your phone
Bang for buck: It’s free!
Ease of use:
Google released the Field Trip app on iOS today, which was available on Android for a while now. Running in the background of your phone, Field Trip is a guide to all the things – restaurants, sights, etc. – around your location. This means that when you get close to something interesting, it will notify you and if you have a headset or bluetooth connected, it can even read the info to you.
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.
Some of the highlights of this app are:
- You can choose to receive notifications based on your interests – Architecture, Historic Places & Events, Lifestyle, Offers & Deals, Food Drinks & Fun, Movie Locations, Outdoor Art and Obscure Places of Interest.
- Notifications can be set under one of the three modes – none, occasional or frequent.
- Like something you see? Mark it as a favorite.
