Find Me on Google's Field Trip!

My dear readers, I'm absolutely thrilled to announce that I've partnered up with Google's Field Tripan app focused on uncovering unique and interesting content about our communities. Available for download at the App Store on iTunes and Google Play, you can now find Food Junkie Chronicles within Field Trip!

Developed by Google Inc's Niantic Labs, a small lab within Google led by John Hanke, the founder of Google EarthField Trip is an app that uses your current location to show you unique and cool points of interests in a very creative way. Think of it as Google Now, but much more detailed in terms of information about any given place it lists. 

I tested out the app on the weekend and it's so simple to use. Once you open Field Trip the app will pinpoint your location (MAP). A variety of pop-up cards written on the surrounding area will populate (NEARBY). Since I was inside Shangri-La when I captured these screen shots my post on Shangri-La's high tea showed up right at the top (just so you know you have the ability to select key interests you like, that way the app shows you only relevant places and information). Aside from "Food, Drinks & Fun" other categories in Field Trip include: Architecture, Games, Historic Places & Events, Lifestyle, Offers & Deals, Cool & Unique, and Art & Museums.

 So for this particular example, not only can you read my write-up on Shangri-La within Field Trip you'll also find other restaurants close to Shangri-La that I've written about. Even if you don't open the app you can set Field Trip to show frequent or occasional notifications (you can even turn on an audio option that will speak the title and description of a spot). 

From Port Credit to Parkdale...

And Leslieville all the way to Richmond Hill...

Food Junkie Chronicles has got you covered in Field Trip!

None of this would've been possible without your continuous support for the last four years! Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart! ^_*
