*** “Kevin Costner's new travel app will narrate your next American road trip.” - Lonely Planet
*** “For families embarking on the great American road trip this summer, HearHere provides short, interesting audio tidbits to coincide with and expand your journey.” - Travel & Leisure
*** “Learn about your surroundings, one mile at a time.” - Urban Daddy
HOW IT WORKS
As you travel, HearHere serves up stories based on your geographic location and interests. The audio vignettes, generally 2-3 minutes in length, combine to tell the history around you, painting a multi-dimensional picture you’re unlikely to get from a history book or visitor's guide. HearHere answers the questions we all ask as the odometer turns:
“I wonder how this town came to be?”
“Who was that mountain peak named after?”
“Who were the first people to live in this area?”

Perfect road trip app
This app is EXACTLY what I’ve been looking for.
With COVID-19 making remote work ubiquitous but airplanes a non-starter, I (and everyone else I know) am all about hitting the road this fall. This app is the best way to break up my road trip playlist with new content that’s interesting and relevant.
They’ve got stories of all kinds totally covering my west coast trip routes, narrated by great voices!, at the touch of a button. Superb. A couple little kinks in app navigation so far but they’ve really made it so easy to get to the good stuff.
Worth the subscription 100% - can’t wait for my next trip!
Once you install the application and create an account, you’ll notice upon opening the map that “flyover country” has been almost entirely omitted. Granted this is a relatively young application, but the potential is very great for this to become something much more. I can see the vision. I am curious as to how to go about including local landmarks through this application. I would be interested in assisting in the area in which I live.
Developer Response ,
You’re correct about our coverage as right now we’re only in the West Coast but we’ll have all 50 states covered by next summer.
Thank you for your offer to contribute! Please send an email to email@example.com and we can follow up.
Thanks again for your interest in HearHere.
Hear me out....
This app is amazing. I drive a sprinter RV and have always wanted an app that would know where I am and tell me interesting stories about the places I am driving through. It is easy to use, narration is clear, stories are engaging and makes any road trip more fun.
