iHear Network is a brand new Android application that lets you hear geo-tagged content all over the world. Basically, utilizing text-to-speech and location-based technologies, this application reads you content that is posted to the internet. Sitting right where you are, you can “virtually” teleport anywhere worldwide and listen to what people are saying as it happens.

It’s like having a radio broadcasting location-relevant news from social networks, blogs, and other media. iHear Network allows you to hear what people are saying without having to invest time in searching for content.
