What's New in Version 2.9.1

V2.9.1 kills an irritating bug. V2.9 mic volume was massively boosted AND the additional Microphone Boost pref was restored, so now you can hear over the loudest music. New iPhone 5 graphics give more space to work and loads of code engine tweaks make Awareness! run more smoothly.

Customer Reviews

Life saver!

Came down with a double ear infection and couldn't hear out of either ear unless it was really loud. Got this app, now I just wear my headphones all day and can actually hear everything (almost everything) going on around me. I'd have spent the last 5 days completely deaf without this app.

PS: not sure if someone submitted a bug ticket for this but text message alerts don't come through when using the app.

Not really very useful for running

I have purchased this app and find it is not very helpful while running. Traffic approaching is audible to the naked ear before the mic picks it up.
Additionally, when the mic does pick up the sounds of approaching vehicles it is played in mono in the headphones so there is no directionality to the sound.
I am using the original iPhone 5s headphones..
