Field Trip App Description

Field Trip is your guide to the cool, hidden and unique things in the world around you and is now on the iPhone! Field Trip runs in the background on your phone. 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. Field Trip can help you learn about everything from local history to the latest and best places to shop, eat and have fun. You select the local feeds that you like and the information pops up on your phone automatically, as you walk next to those places. The hyperlocal history experts of Arcadia and Historvius will unveil local lore in places that you never expected. Trend-setting publications like TimeOut, Thrillist, Food Network, Zagat, and Eater 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, Dezeen and Daily Secret help you uncover hidden gems no matter where you are. Songkick and Flavorpill guide you to local music. What did you discover today?

    Looks interesting, but on latest iOS crashes on launch on 2 devices. No relevant help online and seemingly no easy way to report.

    This is the second Niantic app I've tried today - neither have worked.

    I downloaded this app for the above named feature but I can’t find it? Where is the search facility?
  • It's okay

    I live in Colchester and I know that there are a lot more places of interest than stated. Hopefully this app will get better over time.
  • Another great app by google!

    The app is well designed, easy to navigate around. And heaps of engrossing information.
  • Battery Flat

    By Nicbairns
    I loved the concept and the actuality was pretty good but I hated (to the point I've removed the app) the fact it chewed through my battery. Fix that google and I'll come back!
  • Constantly tracking

    By Mike Manchester
    Even if you close the app (by double tapping the home button and quitting it from the multitasking menu) the app somehow continues to use location services. I don't feel comfortable being tracked all the time and that information being sent to these people. Deleted.
  • Battery drain

    Location services were constantly on, draining the battery. Content was of little use
