The search giant's new 'Field Trip' app uses your location to push updates about the cool and unique things around like historic places, food and drink spots, deals, and movie locations.

‘Field Trip‘ is a new location-based app from Google that pushes you updates about the “cool, hidden, and and unique” things around you. It works in the background and a card pops up with information about places nearby. The frequency of these notifications can be set from three different modes. You can also use the map view to discover locations on your own.

The app tells you about cultural and historic locations, food and drink spots, deals, movie locations, outdoor art, and obscure places of interest. The information comes from publications including Atlas Obscura, Thrillist, Cool Hunting, Eater, and Zagat.
