Google has updated its Field Trip app for the iPhone with improved card browsing and automatic translation.

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.


Highlights:
- 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:
- Automatically translate cards that are not in your native language.
- You no longer need to sign in to use Field Trip.
- Quickly browse through cards by continuing to swipe up after scrolling to the bottom of a card.

You can download Field Trip from the App Store for free.
