Google’s Field Trip App Gets More Content From ‘Art Nerd New York’

Google on Friday announced another content partnership to bolster the information served up by its Field Trip app for Android smartphones, a location-based app that automatically alerts users to interesting sights and destinations around them. Google has now partnered with Art Nerd New York, a city art guide/blog that began as a Tumblr in 2009. Google said the partnership will help Field Trip users in NYC “discover hidden and unique art and art history.” Field Trip was developed by a skunkworks group within Google called Niantic Labs, which also developed the augmented reality game Ingress and which envisions a future of “ubiquitous computing.”
