Get those consent forms signed by your parents, kids, and get ready for a new Field Trip. Although, this isn’t really a new adventure, it’s just a great update by Google’s Niantic Labs to their Field Trip app for Android. Material Design leads the charge, bug fixes and performance improvements follow the company line and improved notifications bring up the rear.
For many, Google’s Niantic Labs is best known for their popular augmented reality game, Ingress. In the game, players physically traverse the globe while digitally conquering an in-game alternate reality. Field Trip is an app that provides a tour guide approach to the same globe trotting, revealing interesting information about places and things all around the world, just without the portals to smash.
