Field Trip

Posts from landscapelover now feature on Google’s new app Field Trip.

This seems to me a nifty concept that allows information about local places to pop up on your phone when you are nearby. Content includes cafés, bars, shops, buildings, heritage sites and, of course, interesting landscapes.

Reviews suggest Field Trip is an app with lots of potential, although rather patchy coverage so far. So I was pleased to be invited by Google to be one of the first ‘content providers’ for France, and I look forward to seeing how it develops. It is intriguing to think that in the not-too-distant future people may stroll around a landscape while reading my post on the subject through Google Glass

    That really is unbelievablet, technology moves forward so quickly you can hardly keep up… what will Google, Apple, Microsoft come up with next I wonder? It’s great really because you could actually be somewhere that you don’t know and a place of interest could pop up on your phone for you to investigate really cool, the kids will never get bored again.
