Google Releases Location Discovery App 'Field Trip' on iOS

Google today released its location discovery app Field Trip for the iPhone. Previously an Android app released in the fall, Field Trip is designed to direct users to local points of interest.

The app runs in the background and uses Bluetooth or a popup notification to alert users when there are "cool, hidden, and unique things" nearby. Field Trip offers information on landmarks and historical facts along with recommendations on the best places to eat and shop.

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

So its like having a creepy guy follow you around tracking everywhere you go and selling it to anyone who asks, for the benefit of once in a while he'll tap you on the shoulder and say "Hey, there's something cool over there!".

Downloading now.

I downloaded it and the local points of interest are landmarks and essentially nothing else. When I get to the city I suspect I will be pushed to go to stores that have signed up for some deal or ad. No value added yet IMHO. V1.0.0.590.
