ScoutMob and Google team up to send pop-up offers to your Android device

via cdn0.sbnation.com

With Google's Field Trip app, users roaming around the United States can get location-based notifications that provide useful information about the sights around them. ScoutMob, a daily deal site, has teamed up with Google to integrate its service into Field Trip, which essentially means that offers can show up on your Android device in the same way. Field Trip runs in the background — which may not be the best thing for those with battery concerns — and pulls information from a number of publications and services, like Thrillist, the Food Network, Zagat, Cool Hunting, Atlas Obscura, and Songkick. Fortunately, the type and number of ScoutMob alerts can be set through the app, which should avoid the possibility of being inundated with offers from local businesses.
