Field Trip, your guide to the cool, hidden, and unique things in the world around you is now on the iPhone! Field Trip runs in the background on your phone. When you get close to something interesting, it will notify you and if you have a headset or bluetooth connected, it can even read the info to you.
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 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 you never expected. Trend-setting publications like Thrillist, Food Network, Zagat, and Run Riot will point out the best places to eat and drink. Experts at Sunset, Cool Hunting, WeHeart, Inhabitat, and Remodelista will guide you to the latest unique stores and products. Atlas Obscura and Daily Secret help you uncover hidden gems no matter where you are. Songkick and Flavorpill guide you to local music.

Ratings and Reviews
Audio Not Working
I love this app. I wish I could give it 5 stars, but I have been unable to get the audio working for the last year. Audio used to work fine, but despite the settings being setup for audio, there is none. It's hard to read and look around at the same time. I'll continue to use, but I really wish there could be better audio. Hopefully a future version will include the ability to add good audio commentary from real people and a community can pop up to review and support this effort.
This app is USELESS
This app is AWFUL. If I select an interest, whether is be Art & Museums or Architecture, it does not give a list of anything near my location. The apps gives a list of random information such as Chicago Public Art, City of Laguna Beach. What does that have to do with finding Arts & Museums nearby? Absolutely nothing. Anyone who gives this app more than one star must have a stake in the company or personally knows the developer.
Works for me
I have tried one other historical marker app and this one is much better. Came up with all my local markers in a flash. No complaints here.
