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.

Doesn't work It won't allow me to move the map around. Also, I'm not getting a single result.

The contents I found about the places I visited were not something extraordinary to be explored. Those could be easily found in Google maps or other travel apps

Interesting So Far Samsung S5 - Works great so far. Found out a few things around our home we didn't know. Would like to see a "User Added" section for suggested places/facts with a picture. For instance we have a ditch next to our house that Civil War Union troops used to maneuver past Rebel troops. There's no historical marker for the area. And a lake sits on top of much of the route now. Can't wait to go out and about to discover what else is around our area.
