Field Trip: Free for iOS and Android
Like having an unobtrusive tour guide in your pocket at all times, this app -- which runs in the background -- makes it easy to discover hidden gems in cities around the world without doing any work at all. Its aggregated geotagged reviews and explanations for points of interest from a number of publications including Thrillist, Cool Hunting, and Atlas Obscura notify you when you're passing by something worth checking out.
