Google is making yet another push to blend technology with every-day life. This app, called 'Field Trip',is essentially an automated tour-guide to the world. This app runs in the background and occasionally send you notifications about nearby landmarks, surrounding restaurants, or even local trivia.
The app has two modes, 'Feeling Lucky' and 'Explore'. The first sends occassional information, while the latter will push a lot more information. The app can also be turned off for when it wouldn't be appropriate to have your phone updated with random info.
Google partnered with several different companies to produce the content, including Zagat, Eater, Inhabitat, and The Daily Secret.
