Overhear Mobile App

(Pending editorial review)
United Kingdom (West Bromwich)
Overhear geo-tags recorded content to spaces for users to find and collect. The app shows users a map with pins marking locations where content can be found, when the user travels to that space they are given the option of collecting and listening to the audio providing them with a poetic perspective about that space or a story related to that area.

I created Overhear when I felt like I was just dropping my audio content into the abyss of the the internet. I work part time on Overhear and the rest of the time as a Music support worker creating sensory workshops for those with sensory needs.
