There are interesting things all around us. I’m not talking about, like, magic in the natural world, I’m talking about forgotten historical landmarks and quirky hidden shops. The things that make life interesting. Sometimes there is a wealth of random locations right under your nose. Field Trip is the app to help you find them.
Field trip runs in your phone’s background and updates you when there’s something you should check out nearby. The good thing is you can change the settings so that your phone isn’t buzzing constantly while you’re walking down the street, unless of course you’re exploring a new city.
You can choose what sort of content you’re fed, so it’s definitely for more than just historic buildings. You can also set it for shopping and eateries, to help you find little known places, because let’s face it, traveling generally revolves a lot around food. If your world is becoming the same old day after day drudgery, Field Trip can help you find hidden gems to spice things up a bit.
I downloaded it to see what it would come up with for my little city, expecting it to only find a few well known landmarks (it’s a small place), but it actually pulled up quite a few new attractions that I wasn’t even aware of and I live 500 feet away from them. That’s what you call a good database. Field Trip is free for Apple and Android.
