OverHeard Launches New Sound-Sharing App To Capture Moments Worth Sharing

OverHeard, the addictive sound-sharing app, today launched to the public after three months in a closed beta. The new app runs continuously in the background, helping anyone capture and share spontaneous and authentic moments. The app is currently available for iOS devices, and is optimized for version 7.0.

Everyone has experienced one of those moments when they wished they had captured a funny, profound, or beautiful sound. OverHeard was designed specifically to let anyone effortlessly capture those great sounds, like a great drum solo, a warming quote, or a hilarious joke after it already happened. Hear something amazing? Simply open the app, hit the capture button, and share the sound with friends.

“We built OverHeard to enable people to share sounds like they share photos. Once you start using the app, you become instantly more aware of the world around you, and the sounds you can share,” said Andy Hickl, one of the creators of OverHeard. “OverHeard is a great way to experience a place you’ve never been before. Have you ever wanted to hear sounds from Madison Square Garden or Carnegie Hall? OverHeard lets you plug-in and listen to the world as heard by the OverHeard community.”

OverHeard works by continuously capturing, buffering, and discarding sound in 15-, 30-, 60-second, or 3 minute increments. After a sound clip is saved, it can be shared immediately with the OverHeard community, or saved as a draft for later. Users can browse sounds in a universal feed of all OverHeard activity, or a filtered feed of just the sound-makers they follow.

Users can play with sounds by adding sound effects, fun titles and hashtags, tagging their friends, and replying to sounds with even more sounds. OverHeard currently features 10 fun sound effects: Mr. Reverb, Miss Echo, Mr. Vader, Mr. Roboto, Miss Lolcat, Mr. Lynch, Miss Harmony, Mr. Comedy, Mr. Crickets, and Miss Funk.

Key features include:

  • Capture sounds after they happen
  • Add sound filters and effects
  • Like, reply and comment on sounds
  • Share sounds to Twitter
  • Tag sounds with beautiful photos and locations
  • Browse sounds by hashtags
  • Follow other OverHeard users and places where sounds are recorded
  • Save sounds as drafts to publish later

OverHeard was developed by A.R.O., Inc., the contextual intelligence company, and is headquartered in Seattle, Washington.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings in the last year, but these are just the tip of the iceberg.

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control.

Everyone knows that truly innovative companies learn as they go along, pushing boundaries in response to market changes and demands.
