HearPlanet, FREE (so far) travel app for iPhone

HearPlanet iPhone


HearPlanet is a (so far) free travel app for the iPhone and iPod touch that gives you text and voice information about the city you search for. If you have an iPhone 3G then you’re in more luck as it will automatically locate your position. If you think you know a lot about a place, you can also record and share your voice with the world. Just make sure your voice doesn’t suck please :).

Information seem to be heavily pulled from Wikipedia, aided by other sources as is always indicate at bottom of the screen. The app seems to be only temporarily FREE so I’d say if you’ve got an iPhone or iPod Touch, get it now  [iTunes Store Link] regardless.

This is a video of their coverage at MacWorld 2009.
