Google Maps

Field Trip will help you unveil local places and discover more

There may be hundreds of Google Map-related apps available on the Google Play Store today but only a few can be considered as really helpful. The native Google Maps app will never be enough for those who want more information about a certain place or want to see photos first before going. For those who like to travel and explore the world only on their screens, the Field Trip could be a new mode of "traveling". Discovering Google Maps doesn't have to be boring because there are many apps available, offering different information, photos, and details that really matter.
