REVIEW: 9/3/18 I just caught up on my latest Traveler soundscapes. I wasn’t sure I would like the soothing car ride but it was pleasantly calming. St. Mark’s square was such a delight for not only my ears but all my senses as I was transported back to my time in Venice. I liked the winter soundscape. Would love to hear more winter sounds as I love all things snow and winter related. Keep them coming Travelear dream team!! REVIEW 5/18/18 Oh the beauty that is Travelear continues to save me. My new favorite in the winter forest. I usually only like the ones with human interaction but this brought me back to my favorite winter wonderlands. Always looking forward to the next one. This is an app worth having!!! I continue to enjoy the sounds of Travelear. I recently listened to all podcasts and thoroughly enjoy your social media presence. At my job everyone plays music I can't stand. I am able to put in my headphones, as we all know Travelear is best enjoyed with headphones, and drowned out all of the noise. I love escaping during the day via the magic carpet that is Travelear. REVIEW FROM DECEMBER: Thank you for creating this app. I work like a dog and seldom have the opportunity to travel. In addition I spend a good amount of time commuting. Travelear takes me to places I've never been but always wanted to visit as well as places I long to hear again. The soundscapes aid me in relaxation during my journey to and from my job. Personally, I enjoy the human/ urban landscapes more so than the nature scenes. But they all have their beauty. Please keep them coming so I can continue to take trips through sound. I have some amazing suggestions that I shall be sharing privately. Keep up the innovative work!
Reading other comments that’s great you guys took the blind community into account with this version. I’m not blind but I still really enjoy the app.
I love how the app developer consider accessibility in this last update. We desperately needed it. When we contract with the developer he was quick to respond. I like that in a developer. Someone who is considered to the needs of the users. Furthermore.. I appreciate the fact that the sounds are absolutely recorded, and we can be worst way to darn near anywhere.
I love the idea of this app, and the recordings it does have are beautiful, gritty, hypnotic, whatever you want, sort of. There need to be more!!! That is my biggest criticism. I rarely rate apps, usually only when there’s a problem, like a lot of other people. But I think this app could be something truly wonderful, the companion to something like Google Earth, which has elevated the armchair traveler (or housebound person, like me,) into an actual sightseer. With Travelear people could expand their experience to the all-encompassing sound of places they love or have dreamed of visiting. Of course the recordings they have at present are a small but decent collection of exotic white-noise, but they’re also wonderful in and of themselves. I will probably never travel to my favourite city—London—again, but hearing the very familiar sounds of ‘The Tube’ was like coming home. I also use this app (and other better ones, in my opinion) to evoke a mood or a time or a place when I am reading (big fan of historical fiction.) Travelear, with more places, sounds, & choices would be an app I would use every single day.
Great app but this app need to be fixed. App crashes after using it for a few minutes.
I have been a fan of this app since day one, and they manage to keep making it better with each update! As a New York-born and east coast-raised L.A. transplant, I'm constantly shuffling between "TIMES SQUARE," "GRAND CENTRAL STATION," and (my personal fave) "NEW YORK CITY SUBWAY RIDE." You can even curate your own playlist/queue and tailor Travelear to your listening likes! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
Love this app! The recordings are so unique. I have a three year old who loves listening to the bees and subway during the day. At night he falls asleep listening to rain or waves. The fact that the recordings are from real places has sparked fun conversations in our family too. Thanks Travelear for an awesome app! Can’t wait to hear what you guys record next!
This is app has brilliant beautiful 3-D sound. The only thing missing is MORE! EDIT: ... and a Random button (that doesn’t play repeats too often).
I feel like I’m in a different place. It’s relaxing and amazing. The quality is insanely good. Just put headphones on and close your eyes and enjoy. I completely recommend!!
That, or create ways users can add their own while traveling? (E.g. the way LibriVox does). Right now the scope of the app is very limited. This idea has the potential to be able to transport users to thousands of locations around the world. You need to grow it or create a way for it to grow organically.
