Take The Day Off And Explore The World Around You With The Field Trip App From Google

In the famous words of Ferris Bueller: “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” Nothing could be more true, and unfortunately for many of us, we become so engulfed in the hustle and bustle of life that we become blind to all its wondrous elements. There are literally hundreds of thousands of amazing things to discover around every corner, all we have to do is stop and look around once in a while. That’s where Google’s Field Trip app comes in.

Field Trip runs in the background and notifies you with information when you’re near something of interest. What types of information you are interested in and at what frequency you’d like to be notified is completely up to you. Field Trip makes you feel like a local no matter where you go. Whether it’s a local music hot spot or a lesson on the history of your town, Field Trip has you covered.

Highlights of the app include:

  • Discover thousands of interesting places/experiences that fall under the following categories: Architecture, Historic Places & Events, Lifestyle, Offers & Deals, Food Drinks & Fun, Movie Locations, Outdoor Art and Obscure Places of Interest around you.
  • Choose from three different modes to set frequency of Field Trip notifications. See “Field Trip” worthy places around you on a map, by tapping on cards in map view to pull up enthralling points of interest around you.
  • Go on a Field Trip while you drive. Field Trip can detect when you’re driving and automatically “talk” about interesting places and experience around you.
  • Capture the memory of a special place, by sharing a wondrous discovery through email and social networks such as Google+, Twitter and Facebook.
  • Wondering where the gem that you recently discovered is? Find your discovered field trip cards in the “recent’ section.
  • Field trip learns what you love. Thumbs up or down to tune the information discovery engine.

It’s time to stop rushing through life and time to start exploring all it has to offer.
