In a nut shell, once Field Trip is installed it will just kick it on your device. Using your GPS location, it will alert you with cards of interesting information about the area around you. Basically making your entire normal routine an actual Field Trip every day. After you install the app and open it once, you won’t have to go do anything ever again. It offers up the usual little bits of information about the app and three settings for the notifications. You can set it to Explore, which offers up frequent notifications about things around you. Feeling Lucky, which offers up occasional notifications and Off…. Which means no notifications.
Seriously, this app is sounding better ad better the more we read about it. There is a lot more to this app that you will never have to touch. Like reading out loud things close to you while driving. Here, take a look at some highlights and a short video.

The app is built to work on Android 2.3 and up and weighs in pretty small at 2.9 MBs. Also note, it is optimized for smartphones, not tablets. We have a feeling the app will really shine in larger cities and places with historical value. I of course have nothing of interest near me. At least according to the sources they are using right now. Hopefully that expands a little. I will definitely keep it installed and crank up that notification alert to the max to see what shows up. I think it is going to be a lot of fun. It sure is smooth and clean.
