Google started testing free passes through the Field Trip app back in May, and now the program is expanding to more locations. Throughout the month of July, venturing near a participating location will produce a free single-admittance pass. The list of attractions is much larger than last time.

    The app is nice, but it's hard to find an app that has less regard for Android's design guidelines. It's such an oddball among Google apps.

      They're basically using Ninantic Labs as an experimental wing for Android. Experimenting with augmented reality and maps stuff, and design styles etc.
