New Feature: Google Field Trip Integration

24 Nov

OnCell-TourSphere has partnered with Google Field Trip to provide quality “stories” to Field Trip users. With over 1 million Google-Field-Trip-Partner-TourSpheredownloads to date, Field Trip is an excellent way to learn about what’s around you and is available as a downloadable native app in Google Play and the Apple App Store.

What is Google Field Trip?
Field Trip connects visitors to interesting sights and information, wherever they are. It runs in the background on your smartphone, and when you get close to something interesting, it pops up a card with details about the point of interest. If you have a headset or are Bluetooth connected, it can even read the information aloud to you.

How does this affect your tour?

Through this partnership, OnCell-TourSphere clients have the option to distribute tour content from their live app to Google Field Trip. It’s a win-win solution to give your tour content even more visibility and provide another point of access for your visitors or passersby who may not otherwise know about your tour. The tour “stops” from your OnCell-TourSphere mobile app will be available on Field Trip pop-up cards with a link to your live OnCell-TourSphere mobile tour.

A few thoughts to remember about pushing content to Field Trip:
1) Field Trip integration is available in both Pro and Lite accounts. 2) Enabling Field Trip will not affect your current billing amount as there is no additional charge. 3) When building/editing your tour, simply make sure each of your stops have the following items to help tell your “story”:

  • Map marker in a Google Map widget or a GeoAlert set
  • At least one image or a defined project app icon
  • Text widget that contains descriptive text
