Intro: “Imagine having your very own tour guide that works on your schedule, no matter where you are. HearPlanet, an audio tour app for iPhone and Android (with mobile web and additional platform support on the way), gives you a pretty close approximation. Its massive audio guide database is impressive enough on its own, but its geolocation features make it easy to find landmarks of interest, hotels and restaurants near you on a map. You can also upload your own audio and other information about places. NerdWallet recently named HearPlanet a top travel app, but we wanted to learn more about how this awesome app came into being. Steven Echtman, HearPlanet’s founder, took time out of his busy schedule to speak with us about the inspiration for the app, and his company’s plans for the future.”
