Architizer Partners With Google For New “Field Trip” App
September 28, 2012
We have some exciting news here at Architizer. Google tapped us to be a content partner for a new app called Field Trip—and that free app is now available for download in the Android Play Store! Says Google: “Through great partners such as Architizer, Field Trip users can discover thousands of interesting places and experiences around them.” Read more.
The app provides a bevy of facts about sites and venues in your immediate vicinity—from architectural landmarks to bustling bistros—and it does so automatically. As you stroll by a point of interest, a Field Trip page magically pops up on your mobile device. “It’s always running in the background, so it knows where you are and is always looking to see if something interesting is in your immediate physical environment,” John Hanke, a Google vice president of product, told the New York Times.
For those who don’t want to get overloaded by these digital trivia cards, you can limit the amount of notifications. You also can cater the app to your personal interests. The following categories are offered: architecture (our favorite!!), historic sites and events, lifestyle, offers & deals, food drinks & fun, movie locations, outdoor art, and obscure locations (our second favorite!!).
Architizer submitted projects from our ever-expanding database. We’re delivering on our promise to get your work seen by the world!
The app is currently only Android-compatible, but Apple fans, don’t fret: Google is working on an iPhone version.
