Okay, this is pretty sweet: app developer Essency has put together Awareness!, an app that interrupts your music whenever a loud noise (honking horn, barking dog, screaming, etc.) goes past a specific threshold that you preset on your iDevice. This could be a very cool development for anyone who digs their music but does not dig losing their sense of surroundings. Here’s a video explaining the ins and outs:
Even cooler is the fact that the app, which is normally $8, is free today, so head on over to the App store and give it a shot.
