Hear what you’ve been missing with iCanHearU – The easy audio amplifier!
iCanHearU was created in MEDL Mobile’s App Incubator. The idea was submitted by Andy Schupbach, originally an auto worker in Detroit but now an airline mechanic in Chicago.
Andy’s father is hard of hearing and he thought that it would be a great idea to turn an iPhone into a hearing aid to help out his dad.
HOW IT WORKS
The app simply picks up the noises audible to the iPhone’s very sensitive microphone and relays them at a higher volume through the headphones. The app works quite well. By using it, you’ll be able to pick up on things you might normally miss.
LOTS OF USES
Use it out in nature to pick up sounds that most of us never even perceive.
Use it in the back of the classroom to hear the teacher, and to pick up on the gossip going down a few aisles away.
Please note that MEDL Mobile makes no claims that this is a legal hearing aid device. If you have hearing problems, we suggest you see a specially trained physician. We also don’t advocate listening in on conversations that you shouldn’t be hearing. Please respect people’s privacy.
We are proud to call iCanHearU a Shiny MEDL Object. See all of them at medlmobile.com. And if you have an idea for an app that you’d like to see on the App Store someday, visit appincubator.com.
Problems but Works
It's a cool app but it has 2 problems that a noticed. The first one might be my headphones but the right earpiece does not work with this app. However I did notice after a tried this, my music did have the right earpiece work. The second problem is that there is a lot of static when I turn the volume high. If you fix these as best you can, I will rate this 5 stars and tell my family to download and rate well. I would recommend this app to anyone who moderate or bad hearing problems or people who eavesdrop.
Best app EVER
I have used this app to secretly listen to people talking in the airport and it's like I'm part of the convesation. I have used it to help me hear in class with just one ear piece in, amazing. I had my gradma use it to watch TV and she said she could hear it so much better. I held it to the crack of the door to spy on my sister and got all the gossip she did not want me to no. This is the BEST APP EVER!!!
At the poker table
I probably shouldn't admit this but I tried it at the poker table and heard someone whispering about their cards. But hey, they shouldn't have been talking about their hand while the game was live. :)
