Google's Field Trip app adds ratings to its recreational recommendations

Google knows that not everything in Field Trip will reach the high watermark of creepy areas around New York, but it hopes that the app's latest update will make cool spots easier to find wherever you are. The search giant's Niantic Labs has added a rating system on Android and iOS and is enabling the community to possibly cull banal info from the mobile point-of-interest database. The five-star rankings should offer more granularity than the previous thumbs-ups/thumbs-down system, and soon enough the cards with the highest average score could be all you see. If your city is inherently boring though, there's nothing Mountain View can do about that.
