Google has updated its Field Trip app for iPhone with several improvements including better battery life and Snooze.
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.
★ Discover thousands of interesting places/experiences that fall under the following categories: Architecture, Historic Places & Events, Lifestyle, Offers & Deals, Food Drinks & Fun, Movie Locations, Outdoor Art and Obscure Places of Interest around you.
★ Choose from three different modes to set frequency of Field Trip notifications. See “Field Trip” worthy places around you on a map, by tapping on cards in map view to pull up enthralling points of interest around you.
★ Go on a Field Trip while you drive. Field Trip can detect when you’re driving and automatically “talk” about interesting places and experience around you.
★ Came across an amazing story or restaurant? Mark it as a favorite to easily come back to it at any point.
★ Capture the memory of a special place, by sharing a wondrous discovery through email and social networks such as Google+, Twitter and Facebook.
★ Wondering where the gem that you recently discovered is? Find your discovered field trip cards in the “recent’ section.
What's New In This Version:
- Improved battery life. Special fixes for older phones such as iPhone 3GS/4.
- The location services indicator icon should now disappear after you've closed the app when you have notifications turned off.
- New Snooze feature - when you open a Field Trip notification, now you can snooze it until the next morning by tapping "Snooze" at the bottom of the card.
- When battery is low (- If Field Trip is active and you receive a notification, you'll only see the title of the card at the bottom of the screen, rather than the entire card. You can then tap or swipe up to see the whole card.
You can download Field Trip from the App Store for free.
