Rick Alber, Dr Web

Episode 916 (2:17:32)

Rick Alber joins Leo to talk about a new app for Android called FIELD TRIP. It delivers location based information in a multimedia format. It can delivery history of local area, information, restaurants, and even movie locations. It does it in an unprompted way, with just a subtle notification. Leo says it's kind of strange because a robot voice will just start talking. It's like having a tour guide where ever you go. Rick says that's the exciting part. Leo agrees and says he'd love to have that whenever he travels. And with location based NFC, it would work anywhere. You can also limit how much is pushed to you.

Field Trip is available now in the Google Play store, and will be coming to iOS soon.
