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.

Comments and Ratings for Field Trip

Crashes on launch (1.4.0)
13/07/2016 01:14:00 1/5 By ajcook
This is the second Niantic app I've tried today - neither have worked.

Women on the Map (1.4.0)
02/01/2016 23:38:00 3/5 By Hong Kong Phooey Fanriffic
I downloaded this app for the above named feature but I can’t find it? Where is the search facility?

It's okay (1.4.0)
08/10/2015 12:56:00 3/5 By Maliceadams
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! (1.3.0)
14/02/2015 23:44:00 5/5 By Yellowpineapple12345
The app is well designed, easy to navigate around. And heaps of engrossing information.

Battery Flat (1.0.5)
01/09/2013 20:05:00 2/5 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 (1.0.5)
22/08/2013 13:44:00 1/5 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 (1.0.2)
02/05/2013 13:13:00 1/5 By stev1e
Location services were constantly on, draining the battery. Content was of little use

Login (1.0.2)
22/04/2013 10:42:00 3/5 By Whistlerblackcomb
Good app but keeps asking me to login every time . Would be better if it remembered your details .

Intrusive rubbish (1.0.2)
14/04/2013 08:50:00 1/5 By Frooty Tooty
Have to create a google account so maximum information about the user can be linked to the tracking information gathered from this app, it appears from others reviews that it continues to track you even when not using the app?, i can't open an account without having to give google my phone no to verify my account! Shove it google your just too nosey. Min 1 star is goat to high.

Leaves GPS on (1.0.1)
29/03/2013 11:22:00 3/5 By The Heeead
This app uses the GPS function even after you close the app. Even if you manually close the app, the app still used the GPS function and drains the battery. 5 stars when this is fixed

Brilliant app! (1.0.1)
24/03/2013 12:14:00 5/5 By thatgirllovesmusic
The complaints from other users of this app ignore them. This app brings new information about your local area and the world around you. I have had no problems with downloading data or notifications they are easily turned off. This app is a wonderful experience, and I highly recommend it.

Causes battery issues - AVOID (1.0.1)
20/03/2013 11:38:00 1/5 By Cdaniels72
This app caused a trip to iStore and a DFU reset to try and fix an issue where usage=standby (in settings, general) that causes the phone to drain battery from full in about 5hrs. The reset didn't work but removing this app did, I for one won't be reinstalling it! I wouldn't expect this from a provider such as Google, unless of course it's a sneak attack on iPhone users!

Unusable (1.0.1)
20/03/2013 10:03:00 1/5 By njpb
I waited 5 whole minutes while it "download data". Gave up and deleted the app

Uses location too much (1.0.1)
17/03/2013 08:20:00 2/5 By Nickname000000
Ditto other reviewers: it uses the location service long after you leave the app, draining the battery. You have to turn off its location access when you're not using the app.

Poor (1.0)
10/03/2013 01:31:00 1/5 By Zack Zackerson
Not useful in any way

Not sure how useful this is for the UK currently (1.0)
09/03/2013 12:22:00 2/5 By Dan Higham
Having had a play with this app and then looked into the sites that the data is being scraped from. It seems likely that unless you're in Central London or say, Stone Henge you'll largely be looking at a big load of nothing. Sure with this being Google they'll add more data soon but at the moment it's pretty sparse.

Forced login, feels creepy (1.0)
09/03/2013 09:33:00 1/5 By colinbirkett
Echoing others here, but until forced login is removed I'll use something else.

Drains battery (1.0)
08/03/2013 17:55:00 1/5 By Tominfleetuk
Location services aways on even when app not running. Be careful using this app.

Worst travel app on the App Store (1.0)
08/03/2013 17:03:00 1/5 By gkdotstar
None or useless information anywhere around me and a design that not even it's mother would like. Pathetic.

Looks ok, but (1.0)
08/03/2013 08:58:00 2/5 By Pattaya resident
Looks quite good. But useless to me in Thailand as the maps are in Thai. Which is strange because the Google maps app is in English.

Requires Google Login Before Displaying Anything (1.0)
08/03/2013 07:05:00 1/5 By VirtualSid
Before you can do anything useful on this app, you need to be logged into Google. Not sure why they need a login just to show me what's near me! Hopefully they will change this so that the app doesn't feel like a creepy location tracker.

Very nice (1.0)
08/03/2013 02:18:00 5/5 By Paul Keating UK
It needs to be expanded in terms of locational info, but as I live in London and it's well covered, I think it's great.

Great! (1.0)
08/03/2013 00:13:00 5/5 By aman284
Now I have two favourite apps. Field Trip and Count Doku!

Pretty cool (1.0)
07/03/2013 22:34:00 5/5 By Double O Lo

Hmmm (1.0)
07/03/2013 21:29:00 2/5 By ImBatman80
Seriously... It uses APPLE MAPS?! It looks like a nice idea; while travelling we rely on Trip Advisor's 'near me now' search... Perhaps one day this could be as good but for now there's no data at all where I am in Brazil. It's clearly some useful features to hide a cynical ploy to get your location data whenever Google wants...

Found out so many interesting things (1.0)
07/03/2013 21:28:00 5/5 By kmacca1992
This app is really great for opening your eyes to the world around you. I live in liverpool, uk. and it has shown me a lot of local places that i really didnt know about. There are some really cool facts just one tap away. So many local stories told to me over the years debunked in an instant. Really has got me wanting to go and explore my city now

Sites not loading in the uk/london (1.0)
07/03/2013 20:57:00 3/5 By clearbrian
Move to tower of London. Tap any point in or near the tower. List appears. Next page is maybe loading webview never seems to load. Tried on wifi and 3g. Restarted the app and it was fine. Maybe only happens after first install.

A battery drainer (1.0)
07/03/2013 20:48:00 1/5 By Dibbs04
Leaves you GPS permanently on. No good !!

Well done google.. (1.0)
07/03/2013 20:24:00 5/5 By Ghahveyi
Very useful app. Different from other deal and offer apps. The reviews of local places are very good

Finally it's here (1.0)
07/03/2013 19:48:00 5/5 By beemerr5
Go for it :-)
