Overheare, a geo-focused Twitter app, is now available exclusively for Windows Phone 8 users.
Overheare shows you the live Twitter stream in a new way. It doesn’t care much about Tweets by people you follow (you probably have an app for that already).
Instead, Overheare lets you check out what random people are tweeting about around you. Or in some other place of your choice. You can even tell it what languages you speak and it will filter out only those Tweets for you.
Maybe you want to check out reactions from that concert you wish you were at right now?
Or maybe see what is going on among English speakers in Hong Kong?
Perhaps you’re interested in Spanish reports from the location of a current event?
Just curious about what’s going on around your own town?
Simply zoom in on the geographical area you are interested in, press play and watch the Tweets come in.
- View a live stream of new Tweets, either in a list or on a map.
