Listen – GPS Audio Tour Guide app
Listen to awesome location-aware audio tours
Listen is a hands- and screen-free audio storytelling experience.
Listen knows exactly where you are and serves up audio exactly when you need it.
Listen frees up listeners to become more aware of their surroundings and immerse themselves in the experience.
“I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen.” Ernest Hemingway
Press play, put the screen away and just listen.
Listen is available for iOS and Android. It uses geo-location to track the device’s precise location. When the listener enters a trigger zone audio will play automatically. Using creative storytelling we can guide visitors along a trail highlighting points of interest as they appear to the listener – call it real-time surprise. For example, “See that bench just up on your left? Why not take a seat for a while and I’ll tell you a tale about the man who made his home in these woods.”
Because the app knows where you are it will only tell you things relevant to that place. The app keeps pace with you. Just listen.
Listen is a cost-effective GPS-triggered guide walking tour guide system designed for location based audio entertainment for visitors on foot, wheels, rails or water. It is designed for durability and ease-of-use.
