Field Trip for Android gets updated with over 80 countries, auto-translation


Niantic Labs' Field Trip is a location-discovery app that runs in the background during your aimless wanderings, piping up when you stumble across something notable. Unfortunately, for software designed to help you travel, it'd only made the one journey outside the US itself -- to the UK, and no further. Fortunately, the Google-owned company has sent the Android version of the app (an update for iOS is "coming soon") truly global, helping you find attractions in over 80 countries. Niantic Labs has also jammed in 30 languages and auto-translation, so if you find a restaurant review in an unfamiliar tongue, you won't have to resort to negotiating with the locals.
