How many of you are TOTALLY obsessed with your iPod? I <3 my iPod touch, except I do not love music because of my hearing loss and my lack of ability to hear the lyrics, well anyway ... here is a new way to look at your iPod touch or iPhone as perhaps maybe a savior or a helper! Yes, I swear I am telling the truth!
The other day I was searching through the apps on iTunes for the perfect apps to add when I found this ...
Dun, Dun, Duhn
MEDICAL APPS!!!!! (I know how boring this sounds, but ...) these are not just any medical apps, but apps to help test ones hearing or to act as a hearing aid. Here are some that I found: ($ signs mean they cost money!)
**** NONE OF THESE ARE AS GOOD AS A DOCTOR ADMINISTERED TEST OR A REAL HEARING AID!!!!! SORRY!!!!!! *******
1) Uhear: Uhear is a self-administered hearing test that allows you to figure out what the quietest sound you can hear is with background noise, to figure out what you hearing is.
2) $ iHear Hearing Aid: This is a "hearing aid" that helps amplify sound.
3) $ SoundAMP: This is known as the BEST "hearing aid" for the iPod or iPhone that helps amplify sound.
4) $ Hearing Test: This application is literally its name, a hearing test.
So, the next time you suspect your hearing has gone down, or you need that extra boost on hearing the song's lyrics try these apps.
I have not used any of these apps, so try them at your own will! :)
What do you think??? Would you use them???
