Field Trip is your guide to the cool, hidden, and unique things in the world around you. Field Trip runs in the background on your phone. When you get close to something interesting, it pops up a card with details about the location. No click is required. 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 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 you never expected. Trend-setting publications like TimeOut, Thrillist, Spotted by Locals, 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 Spotted by Locals help you uncover hidden gems no matter where you are. Songkick and Flavorpill guide you to local music.

What did you discover today? Enrich yourself with a Field trip during your commute. Live like a local when you travel to new places. Eat and shop off the beaten path. Or simply discover the obscure history about your neighborhood during your next walk to the park.

Wrong location It is stuck somewhere that I was almost a week ago. It is not marking where I am now. And there is no way to fix this on the app. There should at least be an option to reload. You need an update, soon.

Interesting but needs more It found some random places where I live. Its not exactly a super famous place here but there are some interesting statutes and landmarks. It'd be really nice if we could add points of interest to the maps for consideration. Just have your users generate your content and you could have the most successful app!

Love it Being a courier for a living, I travel alot. It pops up constantly and some I'm interested in history and a foodie, just the right thing for me. Love that there are more sources added all the time. Great job!

Nice idea, overwhelmed with data Needs ways to filter the huge reams of data. Seriously who wants to see thousands of entries. Get smarter at filtering options and understanding the tourist preferences.
