Spotted by Locals has scored a bit of coup by making it on to Google Field Trip - one of only two travel guide publishers to provide content to the mobile app.
Now when Android users, who have the virtual tour guide application running in the background, will not only be alerted to places of interest nearby but also tips from locals where available.
Spotted by Locals, founded in 2008, has about 245 locals in 46 cities providing information and advice on restaurants and other neighbourhood tips.
Launched last September, Google Field Trip was developed by Niantic Labs@Google which is like a startup organisation within the search giant that is allowed to focus on new products.
Content from Time Out is also featured on the app which is customisable and designed to learn from users' choices.
