Eat ‘n About is proud to announce our partnership with Field Trip (click to get it now), an incredibly cool app from the creator of Google Earth. It’s been called “the future of augmented reality”, and it “may become the basis of your daily reality in five or 10 years“. Field Trip allows you to interact with your environment by using your GPS coordinates to suggest things of interest nearby, and point the way via a Google Maps interface. Plus it gives you a ton of inside info about your surroundings.
You’ve got to try Field Trip for yourself to see how fun this app can be for rediscovering your own backyard, and it’s an absolute must for travel. For a small example of what Field Trip has to offer, think historical buildings, hidden parks, interesting places to shop, or yummy places to eat. That’s where we come in. Give the app a try on your iOS, Android device, or Google glass (looks pretty awesome in the video, right?), and let Eat ‘n About be your guide to some of the best eateries in Vancouver…and Beyond!
