App Description

Hear what you’ve been missing with iCanHearU – The easy audio amplifier!


iCanHearU was created in MEDL Mobile’s App Incubator. The idea was submitted by Andy Schupbach, originally an auto worker in Detroit but now an airline mechanic in Chicago.

Andy’s father is hard of hearing and he thought that it would be a great idea to turn an iPhone into a hearing aid to help out his dad.


The app simply picks up the noises audible to the iPhone’s very sensitive microphone and relays them at a higher volume through the headphones. The app works quite well. By using it, you’ll be able to pick up on things you might normally miss.

Use it out in nature to pick up sounds that most of us never even perceive.

Use it in the back of the classroom to hear the teacher, and to pick up on the gossip going down a few aisles away.


Please note that MEDL Mobile makes no claims that this is a legal hearing aid device. If you have hearing problems, we suggest you see a specially trained physician. We also don’t advocate listening in on conversations that you shouldn’t be hearing. Please respect people’s privacy.

We are proud to call iCanHearU a Shiny MEDL Object. See all of them at And if you have an idea for an app that you’d like to see on the App Store someday, visit
