The app lets you know just how loud your favorite restaurant, cafe, or theater is at all times of the day, in half an hour increments.
Similar to Yelp, this app relies on the feedback of others to relay noise levels. You can leave your own feedback, as well as actually figuring out the actual decibel level using the microphone on your phone. If the restaurant is noise-friendly, an ear symbol will appear next to the listing. Users can also indicate whether or not the staff in a particular location is happy to turn the volume down. The iHearu app states that it seeks to “to enhance social and communication opportunities for all. We are advocates for healthy hearing and have developed this tool as a way to create change. Together we can create and access ear-friendly spaces.”
