Ever worry that the radiation spilling out of your phone is melting your head into a Gadaffi-esque horror mask? Or, worse still, not giving you superpowers but some kind of terrible brain-lump instead? So do tawkon, which is why they’re created this essential tool in the war against ‘going Charlie Sheen’…
Something a bit different within in the world of Android apps, tawkon doesn’t let you fling cartoon fowl at space pigs, nor does it let you converge and synchronise all your important business contacts and documents, but what it does do is measure the levels of rarely good radiation being developed deep in the bowels of your smartphone and warns you when things are about to get horribly out of hand and into head.
Everything from weather conditions to proximity to mobile masts to usage minutes (apparently) can affect radiation output leading to, what doctors call, Melty Head Syndrome. But if levels peak to mind-warping levels during a call tawkon subtly steps in to warn and advise with simple solutions such as ‘use speaker/headset’, thus saving you from ending up a drooling X Factor contestant in later life.
At the end of a head-warming week, tawkon will also produce info and charts on weekly exposure rates too for you to either smile smugly at or, indeed, stare at in horror, depending on the results.
THE BOTTOM LINE
Basic and yet ingenious, the levels of danger posed by mobile radiation has been a hot topic of debate for some time. But with the evidence largely hinting at ‘cerebral-cooking’, downloading this user-friendly and potentially mental-issue avoiding app could well be the healthiest thing you do this year.
