Review Field Trip

Tariq Abdulla
8.3Excellent
Interesting functionality, neat design, completely free, no ads
Search in other locations would be useful
Field Trip for Android delivers to your device summarised local information about history, culture, places to eat and drink, things to do etc. I think this would be an awesome app for traveling, so it's a shame that we all still need to worry so much about roaming charges. These have fallen considerably between EU countries lately, but still present a significant barrier. For travel inside your own country however, Field Trip is a great idea. It could also be good for discovering something in your local area. Who knows, you might be walking right past something quite interesting every day, without realising it.
There's an obvious bias in Field Trip towards large cities, but that is par for the course really. Even in a pretty small city, Field Trip has plenty to tell you about local history. In a small city like Coventry (UK) I found that it was mainly history/architecture oriented, but larger cities like London or Birmingham had a greater variety.
Field Trip will send you notifications when you walk near something interesting. You can toggle how many notifications you want to get, and what type, and they'll switch off automatically during low battery. Using headphones or speakers, you can get Field Trip to read the information to you automatically, which might be useful feature while walking around a town.
You can also see local color-coded suggestions on a map. I think Field Trip for Android would benefit from being able to search for other locations; to plan ahead places you are going to visit in the future. It's a nice idea, with a neat design. It may not be completely unique, but would be a good way to get some effortless suggestions.
