Android App of the Week: tawkon for Android Keeps Tabs on Phone Radiation

How many times have you been on the phone with that one person and the phone call goes from 5 minutes to 5 hours? I know I’m guilty of spending a lot of time talking on my cell phone. I’ve even had my mother send me articles about the amount of radiation we’re exposed to by just having a phone conversation with a good friend. I don’t talk on the phone nearly as much as I did a few years ago, however it’s really neat that there’s an app that monitors and analyzes your mobile phone radiation. tawkon uses technology to collect and analyze network coverage, location, environmental conditions, and phone usage. There are many factors that influence the radiation levels emitted from your phone. However, tawkton uses smart phone capabilities like  GPS and proximity sensors to help minimize radiation exposure.

tawkon is the only application that immediately recognizes when radiation exposure has increased, alerts you when radiation levels cross a predefined threshold, and provides simple, non-intrusive suggestions to reduce exposure to radiation. Suggestions are based on your real time environment and usage factors. – tawkton

It’s pretty cool! It’s good to know that someone has our health in mind. tawkton is not only available for Android phones but for the iPhone, Blackberry, Windows Mobile, and more as well.
