HearHere is a mobile audio entertainment app that shares stories about the people, places, and histories of the land you are traveling through. A hands-free experience that delights, informs and entertains by fostering a deeper connection with the world outside your car window. *** “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 STORY AVAILABILITY Comprehensive coverage in the South Central, Southwestern and Western United States with more than 3500 stories for road trips in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Louisiana, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming - with more than 10,000 stories throughout the US by Summer 2021.

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?” FEATURES DISCOVER THE STORIES HIDDEN ALONG THE ROADS OF AMERICA - Location-awareness provides Autoplay of nearby content for a hands-free experience LISTEN TO THE LANDSCAPE - Tailored content based on the traveler’s interests with themes including Colorful Characters, Culture, History, Local Insights, Music, Natural Wonders, Special Places of Interest and Sports WHAT IF THESE ROADS COULD TALK? - Professional narration featuring Kevin Costner, Phil Jackson, John Lithgow, and more to help preserve the tradition of oral storytelling ON AND OFF THE ROAD - Offline listening available for remote areas (or saving your data plan) GIVE IT A LISTEN DURING YOUR NEXT ROAD TRIP - Stream five stories for free each month SUBSCRIBE - Five free stories per month or annual subscription for unlimited access.
I love the concept but its implementation is weak. The articles are really short. Also, they are pretty much what you would expect from a tourist brochure. There is nothing new or special (and sometimes not even that accurate). Basic attractions description and historical background. The price is not commensurate with the quality of the contents
The app continues to crash when I try to open. This has been persistent for weeks. Please fix.
Removing this app is difficult. The button for activation Hearhere is always in the way obscuring screen. Big Mistake loading this “always in the way” app.
Here’s 5 stories now pay us. Not mentioned in Instagram ad!! There’s probably 200 in California and more on the west. Kind of hard to call it a road trip app when at least 50% of the country is missing from stories!! In the future, please finish an app before releasing it!! Thanks!!
Would rather hear ads than pay expensive subscription. Not worth it imo.
Fun app that could have made my drive not only enjoyable but educational. But after 4 or 5 stories they wouldn’t play more until I subscribed. Couldn’t find a better way to make money and make it available to all? I can think of a few.
This app is awesome! Males your road trip less boring! You can play your tunes as you go and suddenly if you have this app on autoplay a voice will come up and give you a story about the sights you drive by, cool spots to maybe visit and famous buildings! It is fun!!!!! Its a personal private tour in your car’ your carpool will love and maybe you can have a poll on where to go next!
What an amazing concept! I’m in California so there is a lot of content for me but... I downloaded because I’m taking a 10 day trip through the south. There’s no content yet and just 5 free stories? That’s not barely enough. Too bad.
No stories to read. Can’t hear the audio, I’m deaf.
Listening to the stories while taking road trips was a lot of fun. I also use the app to inspire where I want to go adventure next. I have the yearly subscription which I think is a great value and I look forward traveling with HearHere on all my trips to come!
