A newly launched app, iHEARu, addresses and seeks to alleviate concerns about noise exposure by helping people in the United States and across the globe find ear-friendly places to hear and be heard. The app, available for free at the iTunes App Store and at Google Play, allows people to report sound levels and share them with others. Through crowdsourcing, people can choose to avoid the noisiest times at restaurants and other places.
