tawkon v1.21 by tawkon
Tawkon provides a smart, practical solution to mobile phone radiation, with minimal disruption to normal phone usage. Mobile radiation constantly changes; tawkon is the only application that 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.
  • Real-time indication of high (red), moderate (yellow), low (green) exposure to mobile phone radiation
  • Action prompts (subtle suggestions with visual, audio or vibration alerts) to minimize radiation in real-time
  • Feedback confirming whether a recommended action was effective in reducing radiation exposure
  • Statistics to monitor actual and avoided radiation over the last call, day, week, month and six months
Tawkon is one of those apps that people either love or hate. You either feel that it's awesome, or completely useless, and that's fine as everyone is entitled to their own thoughts on the matter. You can pick up a free, ad-supported version on the tawkon website, or grab the ad-free version on sale this week for $4.99 (reg. $9.99) for your BlackBerry 89xx, 9000, 91xx, 93xx, 97xx, and 9800.
